This lovely kind of weather could easily throw me into a thoughtful mood. That, and listening to this song on repeat.
In all reality, if Peter Pan came to me right now and said, "Hey, want to go to Neverland with me?" I would jump up in an instant and say, "Yes sir!" I can be an extremely nostalgic person. I don't want to grow up; I don't want things to change. And watching how my friendships shift as my friends and I grow in different directions is not always a desired thing for me. I want everything to stay the same--I want to stay a simple little girl with simple little girl friends.
But life isn't like that, is it? Life throws different people on different paths, and God has different plans. I'll accept the change. I'll get used to it. But part of me just wants to hold on to that last straw of make-believe and plead for it to come back. Part of me wants to go to Neverland, because surely things are much more simple and sweet there. And even though things will change, I have I feeling that I'll be one of those 50-somethings still saying, "When I grow up..."
