I was running through some E words for a topic today…exhausted, excited, enjoyable, elevated, endless… I thought of how easy we take things for granted.
Energy is one of those things. Watching my small grandson Isaac races around full of boundless energy makes me breathless. He is almost two and if that energy could be bottled up, oh the things we could do!
My teen age grandchildren in NY…sleep till noon and stay up until two in the morning, another kind of energy. Fully engaged in their various activities they produce energy for anything they please.
The Spanish teacher daughter headed for the Dominican Republic in 8 days taking 27 students and parents for an international visit … the energy that took to put it all together and the energy needed to pull it off. I am in awe.
My farmer daughter, milking 14 goats day in and day out expending energy to do that. Wow.
My birthday daughter (she’s 40 today) handling the ins and outs of three businesses as well as raising two terrific kids. Where does she find her energy.
My 7 year old Florida soccer grandson racing up and down the field. Jumping, running, laughing, kicking the ball. Full of unlimited energy…oh the joy of it.
But energy is limited…I thought it would last forever. I AM ready to have a little of mine back!
