Why not?

This weekend, my daughter wanted to make Green Tea Ice Cream for a friend as a birthday gift. I argued that we didn't have the time, recipe or ingredients to make it. Besides, the local Asian supermarket had a delicious brand on sale. We could buy it cheaper than we could make it.

She looked me in eye and asked why not? At the moment, all my excuses why we shouldn't seemed pretty silly. We made the ice cream and it was delicious.

Adults ask why in the hope we find enough excuses not to do something. Children in their quest to explore ask why not? For them the journey is as important if not more so than the destination.

Our sense of possibility dims with age. We should learn from our children.
