A recent trip to Disneyland inspired me to write this.

If life was like Disneyland...
I wouldn't ride the tea cups too often.
I would stop to watch the parades and enjoy the moment.
I would ride Space Mountain over and over because I love to
laugh and just need more reasons to do it.
I would go on Pirates at least three times a day because it gives
me a chance to dream.
I would make sure to go on Haunted Mansion at least once a day
because it teaches me there is a lighter side to dark times.
I would ride Dumbo often because everyone loves to fly.
I wouldn't forget to go on Small World because it reminds me
that while we're all different we're also all God's children and so,
remarkably the same.
I would ride the Matterhorn because I must remember that even
a good life has its share of Yeti's.
I would eat ice cream just because.
I would go on the Winnie the Pooh ride frequently because it's
good to feel the safety of childhood.
I would go on the Jungle Boat ride so I never forget to explore.
I would walk through Tarzan's Treehouse to feel the wind on my face.
I would walk through Toon Town once in a while to remind me I
need to be silly sometimes.
I would ride on Astro Blasters just because it's fun.
I would enjoy watching the people come and go and learn from those
who passed my way.
I would sing all the songs at the top of my voice because music is
good for the soul.
But most of all if life was like Disneyland I would never mind the
darkness of nighttime because I would learn to appreciate the things
I took for granted during the day and I would know the dawn of
another beautiful morning would be soon to follow.

So true, everyday seems to pass so fast and it's so easy to get caught up in it. Thanks for the reminder to live and enjoy each moment and look at the best in things...

Amen! There are some times when I'm listening to the inspirational upbeat music while watching their firework show that my eyes well up and I'm blinded for a second ha ha. I think I am a dork but for the most part, I know it's the child within telling me all is well and to have fun! I love visiting that part of me over and over! Glad you guys had so much fun!
