Today we went to the Carrousel Museum, I thought Mia was crazy for even thinking this would be fun, but I was wrong, IT WAS FUN!
When we first entered this 7 building complex, we were the only one's in there. We looked at all the displays for a little over an hour & took tons of pictures! The horses were beautiful and the craftsmanship was magnificent. With the purchase of admission you get a free ride on a Carrousel, so Mia and I were ready for our ride and went in to check out the ride. While we were in there, asking questions and learning from the man running the machine a tour bus pulled up.
After the tour bus unloaded and all the passengers were inside the museum, they headed straight for the carrousel for their rides. There were almost 50 senior citizens wanting a ride on this carrousel! I decided Mia and I would wait and let one of them have our horse.
WE ARE SO BLESSED!
So blessed this group showed up. Mia talked to many of the people that decided not to ride, and found out this group was from IOWA. Apparently Iowa is the leading Corn producer in the USA. This lovely group of people are traveling across the USA seeing sites. What a wonderful blessing to see so many people enjoying life & traveling together. It was fun seeing all of them riding the carrousel and enjoying it with the bliss and ease that only comes with being ageless.
And that is what truly inspired me today. The shear joy on their faces as they were transported back to childhood, or even just enjoying the ride. Mia didn't stop smile for several more hours after that, thinking about how wonderful, to just enjoy the moment, to enjoy the ride and to appreciate it all while it's happening.
