Every time I spend a week or so with my gr-children, I have to marvel at each and every change in them. How some things seem to just suddenly click and others are things they have to battle on and off; maybe their whole life.

I hear other friends say how their gr-children are reminders of how old they have gotten and how did it happen so fast. I don't find myself thinking in those terms. I find I am thinking how grateful I am that I am healthy enough to carry a conversation with them and understand what they speak of. I can  listen to their music with an open mind and appreciate a good song and admit it. I can sit up till wee hours watching horror movies. I only watch horror movies with them other wise I have no paitience for the story lines. I can still go and enjoy a trip to the mall being drug  back and forth to the same stores 3 times because she can't make up her mind and laugh about it hours later.

I can't let myself feel old when they are around, how fair is that to them. We have fun, we make memories and traditions together. I don't want them to be afraid of growing old when it's their turn. I hope I can leave them with that, that aging is not a time of misery unless you choose for it to be.

 



SherSumFun and happiness, life is too short
