Here Are Two of My Reasons (2 Special Pictures)
Saturday, June 16, 2012
Two of my reasons for losing and staying healthy are right here. So small and absorbing so much about this great big confusing busy world~like sponges they soak everything up. Will I be Grammy who goes to the park and the mountains.. camping and playing in the park? Flying kites and chalk on sidewalks and trips out in the country to count the stars? Will I chase them playing tag and laugh until we cry.. will we play hide and seek and make cookies and big giant finger paintings that I have to try and find more space on my fridge for? Will I be Grammy that never tires of sticky fingers and footprints from running through the sprinkler.. will we pick fresh lettuce and tomatoes from the garden and make popsicles from fresh juice. Will I be Grammy that reads bedtime stories and pushes them on swingsets and always has the energy for "one more time" .. Grammy who builds sand castles and goes on road trips.. helps them learn to ride a bike and listens to them read their first words. Will I be Grammy that is proud when they graduate - radiates at their weddings.. and cries with amazement when I hold my first great grandbaby..
Will I be Grammy .. who lives a long, healthy, fun, sunshine filled, shimmering, sparkling life and fills their world with wonderful memories.. NONE of which includes lugging around extra weight and living on a couch and filled with regret?
You bet I will be. I bet my life on it...
