Monday Monday...the beginning of the work week and the beginning of good things...I hope!! I never have understood why Monday gets a bad wrap..but that has been its history!! Too bad for Monday!!
I am off to work at Curves this afternoon from 3-7 and also tomorrow and Wednesday. I have missed this...especially when I am busy!! I love being busy so let's hope this afternoon is full to overflowing with ladies!!
Last week when I was at Curves another lady and I got to talking (imagine that)!! She and I are close to the same age so we started doing some reminisencing about when we were young and the fun things that we did.
We both grew up on farms and remember the milking; the kitties licking their lips when the milk was squirted on them; sheep; cows; those rotten hand pecking hens; the outhouse; the pigs and so much more. We talked about so much and it made her time on the circuit go really quick!!
We also talked that kids today will never know the fun of those things above unless somehow they do live on farms which are few and far between any more..too bad we both thought!! Kids will never remember going to town and the stores were in separate buildings..NOT a Mall!! They will never remember taking the eggs to town to get money for them. I am so glad that I grew up in that period!! I think that I am who I am for that past experience. How about you? How did you grow up?
I think of the times that Ron and I did not even have a swing set but we made something work. Dad would make us a swing in the tree..which to this day i still adore!! Get me near one and away I go!! We would take things like the clothes line poles and make things to do..like tight rope walking!! Just fun stuff!! I think that we had to use our imaginations a lot more than kids do today.
I want my grands to know that these were fun days. I just recently did something that just occurred to me to do. I bought cards for each of our 7 grands and wrote notes to each of them...Someone told me if you do that they will think that you have a serious disease and are going to die..Oh well..Maybe so but I just wrote to each one of them..The oldest 4 first and then the youngest 3 next. I knew the young ones would say..there is nothing in here..NO MONEY!! Too bad..just a note from your old grandmother. I wrote that it was a "JUST BECAUSE" card...Just because i wanted to tell them how special they are to me and that I love them.
How often do we really tell people that we Love Them? Hm!! Think about it!! I am going out of my way now to remember that..I need to use those words more. At church lately we have been in a family series and Cam has been preaching on using the words..I love you and Forgive me. He says those are the hardest words for us to use...so I am going to learn how and when to use these from now on.
Enough of my jabbering now...I need to get ready for my afternoon job!! Every little bit helps you know.
Take care and i will try to get out and visit..
