It's Friday morning, and it's time to step up to the plate once again with The Gypsy Mama and her topic of choice. So I'm hitting the keyboard 'with no editing, no overthinking, no backtracking!'
Because today's assignment is See.
Ready, set, GO!!!
I've stumbled down the stairs oh-so-quietly before the grandchildren awake. Because I know that when they see me, our day will begin! Full of life and love and energy, they will see to it that our day will be packed with adventure and exuberance and laughter.
They'll help my vision improve. Sharpen. Recalibrate. I will discover what makes life tick from their perspective.
For I will see tiny robin's eggs laying in the grass. A spider's web that sparkles with dew. The joy of a hose and a watering can in a tiny kiddie pool. A popsicle will take on a delicious new perspective. A banged up knee or a sore finger will require loving care.
Books will be read. Pizza will be eaten. We'll watch a movie, we'll head outside for a walk. There will be jokes to laugh at, homework to review, songs to sing.
I will see that yes, I can grow younger, instead of growing older.
