They Should Pass a Law

I was reading Kristin's blog this evening in which she mentions putting parts of her life on hold while she concentrates on her children. What a wise woman!

As an Older Woman, one whose children are long grown, and one who not only has grand-children but great-grandchildren as well, I have to say that I long to have someone pass a law in this country...a law that allows parents of grown children to go back in time once a year...to go back and spend a full day re-experiencing that fantastic time when our children were little...to hear once again their shrieks of laughter, to see them come running to fetch an already wilting bouquet of dandelions and violets, to hear them 'read' a book to their favorite stuffed animal, to have them recite some silly little rhyme they have learned, to smell their hair, to hold their hand, to see the sweetness in their face.

I think they should pass a law. And do it right now!!!!

I wish more people would catch on to the swiftness of time passing. It's always, "We'll do that tomorrow or the next day" and then a year or two has passed and still "it" goes undone.

This summer I canceled all of my activities and just had fun with my family.

We didn't do a whole lot of "special" things; we stayed in town because I didn't want to use gas. We biked everywhere we could and it was great! We weren't rushing around, so we were able to just relax and enjoy life.

I even played baseball!

Thanks for this good reminder!
