Confusion Or Attraction


What Do I Know

My life whirls around like an old merry go round

Flies high in the sky like a wooden swing

Up and over the metal monkey bars

Running across the light green basketball court

Down the slippery grassy hill

Across the jagged rocks in the ice cold little brooke

Through the high grassy weeds

Now I can begin my day

How about you ?

Only to be a kid again and know what we know now

I would get up early and go to bed late

Have fun every day

Outside playing where ever we wanted to go

Called in for supper

We came running

After supper a bath

Homework first

Then a little t.v.

Watching some of our favorite shows

Off to bed we went

Dreaming of all the things we did today

All the more things we are going to do tomorrow

Dora Weithers To be able to be ourselves and run and jump because we feel like it. Getting exercise without even thinking of it. Having friends who enjoy the same things we do. Life changes quickly and luckily we are able to look back and think of all the things we have done over the years and enjoy them once more. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a lovely night.

Quite playful. It was attraction back in the day, though in hindsight it may feel like confusion. What it tells me is to enjoy the present.

Kari Poulsen It was one adventure after another. Nothing to plan. Every day blended nicely with the next. As we got older we had to be more structured and practical. Planning a future. I found it a good idea to travel through many of my old memories to explore what I always found so much fun. Carrying that excitement to everything I do now. Thank you for running next to me in all the joy, happiness and promise all life has to offer. Have a wonderful morning. We just got about five inches of snow. It looks beautiful on the ground. Then it slowly changes as I go out to shovel.(lol) Good exercise and the fresh is really refreshing.

Oh, sounds like my childhood. I loved being a child without the responsibilities of job, mortgage and love. I feel lucky that I can still feel the thrill in my heart.

Gypsy Rose Lee Those movies are beautiful to watch remember you can create so many new memories every day and they can be just as good or better. Just carry the best times forward and let the bad and sad times melt away like the first snow after the sun comes up. Thank you for reading and thinking of all the things you can do that bring you more happiness.

Michael-Milec Time seems to go by slow when your living it. Then you look back and you realize how fast it quickly passed by. I love to relive my life through the fun and excitement I had when I was a kid. Then apply that happiness to all the things I do now. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a wonderful night.

The time elapses fast diminishing chance to give another thought. We are building up new adventure on previous experiences, seemingly never catching up those best moments we wanted to enjoy again and again. We are growing up too soon too fast . A road ahead is long and apparently a few of our days .

One of the things that is helping me very much through this holiday period is watching Christmas movies and dreaming dreams of better times.
