This line from the movie, "Little Women" popped into my head today:
Laurie: "What do they do all day." (possibly paraphrased and in reference to the Little Women next door.)
I always have a smile at this scene because his tutor gives him some silly line which basically means he hasn't the faintest idea.
Then, I began thinking of all that Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy did:
They made their own clothing.
They kept the home spotless.
They worked and did charity efforts.
They tended the gardens.
They educated themselves.
They indulged in their own hobbies.
They played and imagined.
They took care of each other.
They did so much! I bet they rarely, if ever, flopped into a chair and moaned, "I'm bored."
They accomplished so much and were never idle. Spare moments were spent enjoying nature in a refreshing walk or scribbling away stories, or playing music, or painting, or enjoying children or reading.
No TV's. No sterios. No video games....just pure activity.
I like that.
