We bought a board game “Googly Eyes” for our 8-year-old nephew for Christmas. The game involves drawing and guessing what people are drawing while they are wearing vision-altering googles.
And from this game alone, we had some take-home messages.
(1) We got to see life in a whole different perspective LITERALLY. The vision that we have to see things “clearly” without assistance – the game took our appreciation of our eyesight to a whole new level.
This is what it looked like through the glasses at the game board.
(2) It is okay to relax and let loose. Laugh at ourselves sometimes and just have fun!
(3) We are terrible at drawing (or are we?), We did much better than we expected and when we have our nephews saying, “That’s actually pretty good!” – It really does boost up our confidence and does show how important perspective really is.
Summary of January 5
Today we experienced what it would be like to be parents to 4 children. We took our 3 nephews and niece to the movies – it was lots of fun but lots of hard work too. We really do admire those who are parents to be able to manage the land of little people.
Not to take ourselves so seriously – being light-hearted and having a laugh is so refreshing. Yep, we looked pretty goofy!
As Charlie Chaplin once said:
“A day without laughter is a day wasted.”
