The Music Box

What a beautiful box!

Looking at the closed box, you’ll see beautiful colors.  Sometimes the box is painted with beautiful flowers or ballet slippers.  Sometimes the box is beautiful, smooth, shiny wood.  Sometimes it’s even a shiny silver box.  These beautiful boxes are so lovely to look at.

Just holding that beautiful box makes me feel a little bit like a princess.  The beautiful box makes me feel good.  It gives me a full, happy, and peaceful feeling.  It’s so very, very girly.

The latch is always especially pretty, and lifting the latch makes me feel like I’m unlocking something delicate, something special, something valuable — something treasured.

Opening the box, I let out a gasp.  The box is even more beautiful inside!  It’s shiny and soft and delicate and beautiful.  I’m amazed that someone would make a box so beautiful and special.

The box holds beautiful treasures.  The more you look, the more treasures you’ll find.  There are hidden compartments, special compartments reserved for the most special treasures.  If you take enough time exploring and enjoying the box, you’ll surely find deep treasures.

Oh, and listen to the song!  What a beautiful song!  And the dance!  There is a captivating song and dance.  You can’t open the box — not even a crack — without hearing the song and enjoying the dance.

And before you close the box, don’t forget to peek in the tiny mirror.  Because it seems like each time you spend time opening the box and enjoying the dance and listening to its song, there might be something new revealed in you — in the mirror.  Yes, you can learn about YOU in the music box.

My music box?  Chloe.

Chloe is beautiful inside and out.  She’s a treasure . . . and she holds many treasures.  She is a beautiful song and dance.  And you are guaranteed to learn something about yourself when you slow down enough to enjoy her song.

Beautiful one!
