I had an amazing experience today while working at a Summer Solstice fair at The Nurtured Spirit in Warrwic, NY. I had the opportunity to read for 3 lovely young ladies. Two were either good friends or bosom pals for the duration of the event (their parents were vendors). I would guess they were 5 and 6 or 6 and 7. The other young lady was a 9 year old.
The two pals wanted me to read for them both at the same time. It was adorable and fun. I found it interesting to see how I modified how I explained the cards and my responses to make it more appropriate and understandable for young children. They were both wide-eyed and fully engaged in the experience. They enjoyed seeing connections in the cards and seem to have a great time.
The other young lady was interested but also a bit nervous (she kept looking to her mother for support) and seemed to calm a bit when her dad stood nearby. When I asked her questions about herself that seemed on target she got a small smile and nodded. She also seemed to enjoy the experience even if she didn’t fully comprehend some of what I was saying.
All three of these young ladies were charming and adorable. I had a great time reading for them and they helped me realize that I can read for children. It’ requires more discipline on my part but it is so much fun to see their eyes widen and their face light up when they connect with what I’m saying. I hope to have the chance to do this again very soon.
