Young people Old people

Tonight we have 3 kids running around our house. The noise is almost deafening and I actually love it. The excitement and laughter is infectious and kids are just awesome. They settle their diffeences quickly, forgive, forget and move on. We can learn alot from them. They also reflect the bad habits they pick up from adults, but these are easy to spot as they stick out unnaturally from the kids personalities. Everything is exciting, the same old toys are tonight as treassured as a newly unwrapped christmas present. Little games become adventures and imaginations are running wild. I look at them playing and being carefree and feel sorry for the adults who have lost touch with reality. In truth we never have to loose our sense of adventure and excitment for life. One such person visited me today, my very own granny Nova. We had such a wonderful chat, about all sorts of things. About kids and death, about my grandpa and my folks, about her life and choices she made. Granny Nova lives an adventerous life. Sheez we all know that, granny will party till the wee hours of the morning and then be up cooking breakfast for everyone the next morning, she will laugh till her eyes tear, and plans change quicker than the weather around here. One minute gran is on her way home, and before you know it gran has scootered off to visit someone in need of a chat or cheer up, or found someone to have a cup of coffee with. We spoke about choices tonight, and granny Nova, being the wize old soul she is, said that you have to have faith and trust that the right things will happen, be aware when things fall into place and lead you in a certain direction. Take charge of your life your destiny.
So  today has been great, I took a slow drive to PE and had time to sit and think, to dream, to plan. I spent the day in a meeting discussing figures, future plans, goals, aims and a new path forward. I got home and my wonderful family was at home. The kids have laughed, played and shown me how easy it is to be carefree. My gran surprised me with a visit and Bron had a friend pop over. Unfortuneatly GG has taken a bad turn and Bron has had to go see her. This is a trying and difficult time for Bron, and I am glad that Bron is at peace with where GG is and that Bron has taken the time to be there for her gran over the past 7 years we have been together. And as Bron said to me a week ago, a chapter is drawing to a close. Our family is undergoing changes. I have drawn close to those around me and realized that as much as I have valued my friends, it is my family who is always there. Sometimes outrageously crazy, a little insane, we step on each others toes, we fight and argue, dissagree, but most of all we love each other no matter what, regardless of what has happened or is happening, we love each other unconditionally. Held together by mama tasserella (granny Nova) who is quick to put one in their place and smooth out the niggles, followed closely by the next in line, my mom. Diplomats as long as you tow the line:-) Thank you, all of you for just being you.
