Sometimes ya need a Super Hero- a tiny little Super Hero
I remember watching their parents when they were carefree too- and I remember them being in a hurry to grow up.
Nothing I could say would convince them that this time -"this playful,happy ,carefree time is so very short-you must enjoy it- it gets you through the world when it becomes unbearable"
Before you can blink tiny super heroes have to start school,finish school,get a job, take care of a family and become a different sort of Super Hero- the kind that pays insurance,fixes the car,fixes supper,takes care of laundry,banking and the mortgage.
The kind that loves,loses and hurts-sometimes all alone.
That's what Super Heroes do- they just do what needs to be done- whether anyone notices or not.
It's a lonely job....
Its almost impossible for me to watch as they struggle through difficult times- knowing I cant do much.
Also knowing I cant convince them,even now, that this time will pass too quickly also- after all, nobody could convince me. :/
Watch the tiny Super heroes( AKA grandkids) that visit on weekends- and agree with them that they can fly,protect and save...
Hug a Super Hero today!!!
