Once, when I was in high school (and into Junior College!) I worked part time at a rest home. As it was one of my first jobs, which I took pretty seriously, I wanted to be the best I could be. I really have respected my elders, when they told their stories.. It showed me the window of Life that was yet to come.... Didn't believe it could happen to me, but I am seeing signs.. When you're young, you think you get older like the people in the Poligrip ads; grey hair, perfect fake teeth that can eat corn on the cob, trim, all the Equipment working like when you were 20, very few wrinkles, still have all your buttons, etc... Well, it ain't! You don't "look" older- you get older!
Todays' question: No matter how old you may be right now, what do you miss about when you were younger?
Me first, as is the tradition!
I miss playing baseball.. The hot summer day, the milkweed in your teeth- waiting for someone to hit it to center field. The times I got to pitch (I'm a Lefty, and got to pitch alot!) The ice cream cone from Dairy Queen the coach would buy (win or lose!) after the game... And later in life playing slow-pitch softball for a heckofa good team... and later than that coaching my sons and other kids in tee-ball, coach-pitch Little League, buying them treats and hats from our own pockets.. because these fathers believed our kids should know how it works.. I wasn't the only guy that thought : We are teaching them more than a game, we are teaching them honor, respect, tradition- human traits that are important in living your life..
Field of Dreams" is a movie I would watch anytime- anywhere..
Anything you miss, but don't regret is the rule today! Think, remember- and have fun with this today!
