No, this isn't a conspiracy to defraud the government, they don't need my help. It's just some interesting reading with some really kewl truthful facts.
Now that I have that off my chest. I can say I am going to have a wonderful year full of happiness and love. Daughter Rina will be having our Granddaughter by February and then next our Daughter-in-law Heather, in March will smile as our Grandson will be making his entrance known. I love being a grandma cause I get to have that old time attic trunk full of kewl strange dresses, flower filled hats, tea sets, a few old ties and granddad hats and a shirt or two just tucked away for their play days. Beads and baubles and cat eye glasses. A plate full of cookies and laughter to make a clown laugh till his nose fell off. Yes these are the things grandmas like me do. Late night popcorn snuggled to watch a movie and a thousand and one questions to fulfill their curiosity. Raising puppies with Grandpa and chasing cats, picnic in the yard, and watching the moon late at night. These are the special treats of Heaven that only grandparents get to see.
The chance to cook hot dogs over the open fire, coloring mashed potatoes green and the corn red to make the food look kewl for the night. Baking cookies, singing a song, laughing out loud till the crickets come home. Real play time with no video machines, no addictions to non inspiring things. These are the things even income tax can't bring.
I suppose I should sum this up so the New Year can begin:
This year as your life goes on, take a moment to breathe. See the light in front of you for it passes each day because it is free.
Although the giant world around us wants us to feel less important than the guy who sits in the high chair, just remember he has a momma too and women still rule. When looking at facts in life remember someone had to find the facts and calculate them into a code the majority of America may never comprehend or maybe they understand it really doesn't even exist.
It is not a conspiracy to love life and want to have justification where it is truly needed. Now would be a great time to say hello to your children before you realize they are parents too. It is also the time to save the brains of those whom are hemisphericaly challenged and attached to a video machine that sustains the only life they have within their system, (unplug the cords). Don't just be a parent or grandparent be a child's friend, they need to know they are understood.
Make your resolutions so you are honest with yourself and play dress up once in a while just to remind you of the child within your self. And last but not least always ... always ... dance naked under the moon when the weather is warm at least once a year, frost bite can be a bad thing. (I can only smile). Happy New Year!!!
