Monday Fun Day

Updated on November 13, 2017

What A good Way To Start The Week

Now if it could only be true

I think we have to make it happen

We have to think about what we want

Think and dream a little first

Plan accordingly

Then see how the day plays out

For me the world is filled with obstacles

I just have to find a way around them

The obstacles are considered to be bad by many people

I find them little stepping stones I have to cross

I use to love climbing on the large rocks at the end of the beach

My brother would climb a different way

We would wave and yell to each other

When five or six rocks separated us

Sometimes you would jump and hold on for dear life

You didn't want to fall and get hurt

You had to trust yourself

Your own feet would slide from underneath you

A few times I called to my brother for help

He would reach out his hand and bring me to safety

I remember sitting on the large rocks and looking around at the world

From my perspective all I can see is rocks

All different shapes and sizes

I wonder if anyone put them here ?

Was it nature trying to tell us something

Who do I ask ?

Would anyone know the answer ?

Who is responsible for the large rocks at the end of the beach ?

I just want to thank them

Here for everyone to enjoy

I don't think anyone owns them

The liability must be high

Today people would be afraid someone will sue someone

Nobody's property is within miles

At least till now there are no signs

Stay off the rocks

You might get hurt

I remember feeling the coldness under my butt

The sharp barnacles and sea weed on some

Looking for crabs at the bottom of the rocks

Wanting to stick my hand in the dark holes

Thinking there could be a treasure

Chickening out thinking something in there

Might bite me

Only finding bits of a crabs shell left

I guess it wasn't the best spot for crabs to go

I am glad I am not a crab

Then after when we got tired

We both had enough

It was time to go

I would take one last look

Trying to implant the picture in my mind

Forever

What a great time

I know at this very moment so many people in the world are doing so many extraordinary and exceptional things

Here I am playing on huge rocks

You may be noticed and honored for doing what you are doing

I hope that you may have as much fun doing what you do

As I do

Life should be Fun

Never under estimate the free things in life that bring out the most joy

No matter how old you are

You may have wrinkles upon wrinkles

Grey hair replaces your natural color blonde, brown, black or even red

Maybe no hair where it use to be

You can think through the eyes of a child

Even though you made it as adult some time ago

      Any day is good for me. Good weather or bad weather too. Appreciate what we have the annoying complaints about Monday can sound monotonous to me.

      Shanmarie I also remember running through the salt water marsh jumping ditches and losing my balance and falling in the mud. Back then we called it muck. I think I got in trouble but luckily so many years have passed I don't remember the outcome. I can't remember if I did it a lot after that. We use to get bit by horse flies some people called them green heads. They gave you a welt. It came with the territory. Thank you for sharing and bringing back more fun and interesting memories. Have a grand night.

      Kari Poulsen I thought back then if it was this much fun as a child I can't even imagine how great it would be to be an adult. I am so glad I grew up when I did. Kids today have a lot more than I ever had but they don't seem to appreciate it as much. I don't get it. I would be overjoyed and we willing to do chores non stop for one day just so I could have all they have. Instead I think they got spoiled and are use to having and getting what they want. I can only speak for the young adults who I see. I hope I am wrong. See you at the beach climbing on the rocks some time. Have a super night.

      I try to keep the child I am alive and healthy. Being silly at times helps. I remember those rocks! I used to climb them also. From the time I was about 4 till present day. Back then our parents let us do things. Getting hurt was part of life, lol. This makes me want to visit the beach! :)

      Manatita44 We have to ignore other people that dread Mondays. Their constant poor attitude, low energy can drain even the best of us. Thinking how great it is every day and sharing good positive ideas and thoughts with very special people makes every day exciting and new. I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard the expression same old thing just a different day. I am constantly asking people how is your day? What is new with you? The sad part it seems to be teenagers that carry the same attitude. I wonder if they are learning it from their parents. I hope they know enough to break the bad habits. Thank you for making every comment special and enjoyable. I never know what to think of next. How did your poetry reading go? Have a beautiful afternoon.

      Ann Carr I use to spend a lot of time with my niece and nephews. There is not a day that didn't go by that I loved so much my sides didn't hurt. At the same time I would have to leave and go to work. I hated to leave. So much happened in a few short hours that made me so happy. The joy of fun. I was lucky that my mother and father minded them and I got the pleasure of coming and going. They did all the important things. They watched them until my brother came home from work. They usually ate and did their home work and even got showers so they were ready for bed. Both my parents loved minding them and I remember how their eyes would light up every time. Even when they were sick they never gave it a thought. I was more the lets have fun type and off we would go. All I needed is their imagination and world was ours to conquer. Thank you for reading and sharing. Happy days are here again.

      Shanmarie I know that little boys get into their fair share of trouble. I wonder what kind of things girls do to get them in the same mess. I think boys talk about it more because it is one adventure after another. Even though we get hurt it never stops us from trying. It is as instead a seed was planted and we must expand and grow. Thoughts would easily come into my mind without any influence from others. Not the smartest thoughts I must say. Luckily I worked a lot as I got older so I had less and less time to get into mischief. I can listen to stories all day. What happened and when. To who and how was that again. I never get bored. Thank you for reading and sharing such a wonderful story. Boys will be boys. Have a great morning.

      BillyBuck I use to live only about a mile from Revere Beach. Which was the first public beach in the country. Revere, Massachusetts is not far from the city of Boston. People come from all over the world to see Boston which has so many historical sites. I enjoyed more the water, sand, rocks and the sea gulls. I found my biggest treasures on the beach. A piece of sea glass, driftwood or a boring old clam shell. They fascinated me to no end. To think there is a whole world out in the water I can not see. I loved walking on the sand at the waters edge and feel the cold water rush under my feet. It is funny how life gets in the way. We slowly drift apart from our greatest loves and find other things to occupy our time. The memories are very vivid and clear. I can't remember a bad day at the beach. I am trying to understand why I would of ever left. Maybe to crave all the good there is and appreciate life even more. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a enjoyable afternoon.

      Oh yes! You've got it in one! Think through the eyes of a child and you've made it. We can do anything, ignore the risks (to a certain extent), learn about what we find, about what we do, and the world becomes a better place and we become better people. Fun and laughter - that's what I get being with the grandchildren and trying to learn from them that life is worth diving in.

      You just made me think of the fearless spirit if my youngest child. He's broken his wrist this year by falling off the monkey bars at school. Somehow he managed to remove his cast and had to get a second one. The nurses were as baffled by that as I was. And now that he no longer has to wear it, he still falls from those monkey bars and goes back for more. Frankly, I am surprised he never got hurt on the playground sooner. He is fearless enough to do things others won't and go back even if he gets hurt. I could see him doing exactly what you describe doing on those big boulders.

      As for Monday, I would say it is my favorite day of the week ordinarily. But today is driving me a bit crazy. Clear one challenge and run smack into another. It's not even noon yet! BUT something very promising is in the works for today or later this week if these immediate challenges are overcome.

      Have a good day.

      The best part of going to the beach was climbing on rocks and running across driftwood. It's really amazing we never got seriously hurt doing it. Now? Well, I like your attitude. :) Now if my body will be willing.
