I had almost forgotten…
Now that my four kids are officially adults or in my world, they can afford to buy their own underwear, I can honestly say that I had almost forgotten the joy that children bring into our lives. Watching them play, enjoying life without any reservations, and no worries. Children would play forever if you let them and they would eat everything you eat as long as they see you eating it. They run like energizer batteries until they simply stop and quickly fall asleep. The trick is to watch and be available and when they have had enough they will simply crawl into your arms and feel asleep. I had my grandbaby Eliya this past week for a couple of days. I was blessed to be able to watch her sleep, to watch her wake up each morning, and feed her breakfast. The trust in her eyes, the laughter in her voice and the happiness in her living brought joy to my heart each day! How big this world of ours must be to her.
I had almost forgotten the sound of running feet, the jumping around and the sheer pleasure of eating food and humming while enjoying every single bite. My challenge was to try and keep up with her as she ran expecting me to chase her, jump with her when she jumped and fall down when she fell down. Sometimes when I fell down I try to lay there for a little while longer just to catch my breath. Of course every muscle in my body ached after she left with her parents, but the joy in my heart will never fade as I add her activities to my memory of stories about her father and his siblings. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great Monday people and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!

On a lonely, moonlit country road a young man’s car engine started to cough. Immediately pulling over to a scenic little spot he said to the young lady next to him, “That’s funny, I wonder what that knocking noise was?” “I’ll tell you one thing for sure,” said the girl coolly, “It wasn’t opportunity.”
