WHY WE NEED TO APPRECIATE THE IMAGINATION

We have to learn how to appreciate our imagination. We all have it. We may think we don’t, but we do.   Without even realizing it, you use it.  Everyday.  The more it’s acknowledged and recognized, the more it’s used.  The more it’s used, the more our lives can change.

Paris-Fallen But Not Down… “Our citizens did not have to say a word when passing one another at a store, the post office, or even a street corner - we all knew what each other were feeling - a deep sorrow we had never experienced. We hugged each other with our eyes and held the precious families affected with this tragic loss in our hearts.”

Welcome to Puddlesworth Cafe! A place where everyone who loves helping children can meet, chat, and share.  So grab cup of your favorite drink and enjoy reading.  

Here at Puddlesworth Cafe we wish to emphasize the imagination and creativity for parents and for children with a blog or two of personal wisdom experiences.  We welcome any comments that will help us assist you in making children’s lives richer while making them believe they are what they are – beautiful and unique in their own special way!   

That's why we believe so strongly in our vision statement: Our vision is for all children to feel the joy in believing in themselves, the excitement of believing in the power of the imagination, and the wonders of feeling compassion and kindness.

The creators of this team wish to thank you for stopping by and supporting their commitment to children.
