Welcome to day 5 of my Blogging A to Z challenge. The letter for today is “E” for Energy, Excitement, and Enthusiasim. Our four children have an incredible amount of energy. They remind of the Winnie-the-Pooh character, Tigger, bouncing from one place to another. They bounce from one thing to another. Sometimes, when they start talking it seems like they could go on forever. I often wish I had half as much energy as they have.
“E” is also for excitement. Sometimes the simplest things excite them. Recently, my husband and I were out shopping and came across a poster my husband felt our daughter had to have. So we bought it, brought it home, and presented it to her. The shrieks of delight she produced made it worth every penny we spent on the poster. Later, her oldest brother saw the poster and his reaction was equally loud. Our second son finds excitement when playing online games with his cousins and friends. Our youngest son finds excitement in playing his instruments, participating in band and arranging musical compositions. Oh yes, he also became very excited when my husband and I bought a Music Composition book for him when we were out shopping.
Finally, our children demonstrate enthusiasm. Our oldest son became enthusiastic about the guitar first, then the cello and now it comes from playing his upright bass. Our daughter becomes enthusiastic when she creates an amazing drawing by hand or digital drawing on her computer. Our youngest son becomes enthusiastic when he hits a note just right on one of his instruments or when he finds just the sound he is looking for in a musical composition. Our second son becomes enthusiastic when he finds the perfect book to read or scores well in his game.
So what comes to your mind when you see the letter “E”?
