I'm Not Sure She Ever Will.

The little girl in me is definitely still there. The side of me that still wants to be adored and cuddled and tucked into bed each night. The part that wants to lie in my bedroom floor with my crayons and color in coloring books. The child with the unruly brown hair, laying in the grass and seeing pictures in the clouds. Or in the middle of a vacant field, blowing bubbles and seeing how high they float, gasping in amazement as they finally burst.

In the past year I have come to terms with the fact that she probably won't ever grow up, and I'm not sure I want her to. There is absolutely enough room for her among all the other facets of my personality. Most people don't get to meet her, anyway. She's most often hiding behind the stronger...more abrasive side of me.
