Gladys' question.

When Gladys asked "Can it be that it was all so simple then?" she was on to something.
Life seemed so simple...then.
Saturday morning cartoons were a must.
Saturday afternoon drinking from the water hose was a treat.
And McDonalds was too far so Mama made 'mama burgers' either in the oven or on top of the stove.
Life was good.
The air smells fresh and clean.
The sun shined a little brighter and the smiles were wider.
Life was good.
We didn't have much but we had each other- and as homespun and country as that may sound it is the truth and the truth shall set you free.
Hell we didn't even know we didn't have a lot (but "always thankful for the little things that I got"-Goodie Mob)
Life Was good.
Now to say that isn't to to say that life isn't good is.
But I remember when life wasn't filled with concern about the future.
It was indeed simple.
We should try to incorporate a little bit of simple in our lives daily.
Watch cartoons.
Drink water
Skip McDonalds and cook dinner with your family.
Reduce your carbon footprint. Plant a tree or get some plants.
Put on some sun screen, get outside and run around.
And above all smile.
Life is good.

Peace and Peanut Butter
