I am sooo unbuckled!

Being with my grandchildren is one of my most favorite things in the world. They are beautiful, strong and fascinating. I have a three year old granddaughter. She can climb into her car seat and buckle herself up without any help at all.

One day while visiting my daughter and her family this little granddaughter was getting into her car seat while at the same time having a little conversation with her older sister. As we drove out of the driveway and down the street I heard her in a bit of a concerned tone say " I am sooo unbuckled". She then quickly buckled herself in. I laughed and find myself smiling at the very thought of that almost everyday. And I liken it to life. How many times are "we so not buckled in"?

So that is the theme of my blog. I hope that this blog will cause you to laugh, cry, contemplate, meditate, ruminate and illuminate in different times of your life as I know it will for me as I remember and experience days past and present and perhaps days in the future.

I'm nearly 50 years old and like most of us I could make a list of all the trials and tribulations that would take up many sheets of paper. I hope that I have learned much from my experiences and that they have made me stronger and healthier. Hopefully they will help you as well.

For now if you're feeling unbuckled, phone someone you love, eat something you love, take a walk, and last but not least get on your knees and pray.
