Sometimes you just have to

Sometimes you just have to let the kid come out of you again
even if you don't fit in the swing and know that people are watching
you need to be able to feel the air on your face as you swing higher and higher
and you need to laugh and laugh and laugh even if you need help getting your swing stopped

you need to climb to the top even if your granddaughter is asking what you are doing

you need to go down the biggest slide that says only for kids under 12
you need to look at the world from a different level

you need to live in the moment and watch the kids smile

and give thanks and praise for the little ones because that is what life is all about.

You said it! I don't know if I could have "trusted" the swingset or not, especially with two adults on it, ha, ha! What fun you had! I think we all need to go back to the fun things of our youth!

The Bible says, "Unless you change and become as little children, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven." Matt. 18:3 Just think, no matter how "old" we think we are, we are still children in the eyes of our LORD!

Thank you for sharing your joys!

Love to you and yours,
Susan

NO
you will kill yourself
But I remember flying through the air and landing in the dirt with a thud (o:
