The days are long....
Wednesday, July 04, 2018
On our way back from the grocery store this am, I saw a young boy riding a bike and way behind him, was a girl trying to keep up. . I assumed their were a brother sister team. I smiled slightly for they triggered memories of my Summer days.
My brother and I always made use of our Summers. TV was only for rainy days and we spent our days OUTSIDE. We would rise early and ride our bikes all day long. We always tried to see how many 50 mile days we could accomplish before school started up in the Fall. When our parents came home from work...the BBQ;s and swimming at the lake were in order.
Bedtime was early in our household. We would fall asleep listening to the Tiger game on our transistor radios...and dream of the day to come.
I am sure there was turmoil in the world in the 70's, but we were oblivious to that fact. We enjoyed our world.
I try to capture peace of mind and value life today. Sometimes...it can be a struggle in today's times...but I try.
As we passed the young kids today riding their bikes this am......I whispered in my mind...and called them Mary and Bill and wished them the best Summer ever. I prayed they could always keep their Summer Smiles...and warned them ..that may not always happen , but try to focus on nature and they shall find their way back once again.
