Do You Ever?

Do you ever do things just because they bring a smile to your face?
Joy to your heart…
Things like read books that have no socially redeeming value,
Other than the fact that they are fun and take you away from yourself,
Or eat a pint of your favorite Ben and Jerry’s ice cream,
Because it tastes so good and it’s hot outside,
Without one thought of calories,
How about run outside with your twenty-something son,
When it’s raining, dancing uninhibitedly because it’s something,
You did when he was a small boy and it’s special to you both,
Or sit down next to your love,
Laughing at life’s absurdities,
With your hand in the small of his back and your foot in his hand,
Because that feels like the safest and best place on planet earth…
Knowing that no one knows you better,
The good, the bad, the ugly, the light and the dark,
And they love you anyway…
You should try it, or something like it,
It’s real nice!

I've been on a quest to make sure I do more fun things this summer.

Good for you Shelia,
we all need that...

Thanks for the reminder...sometimes we need to be on a quest to do fun things so that we don't take ourselves so seriously!
I'm going to do just that today with my daughter and my hubby!

I find fun between the pages of the many books I read. The most exciting for me coming soon will be going to see The Color Purple on Sunday. I love musicals and plays.

Whatever brings you joy, Jen, whatever brings you joy!

I don't do it enough... But I'm trying to do it more. Thanks for the reminder, sis! :-)
