This as youth we learned:
Link hearts and hands,
rely upon instinct and not a little charm,
loose hair to flow upon open air,
spin freely as summer abundance blooms
embrace mother's words to never forget
how happily together we do skip.

Yes a bit cheesy, but I tried to rise to the occasion for "Imaginary Garden with Real Toads - Words Count with Mama Zen" A word list (of which I used six I think) and write a poem of 60 words or less.
We recently traveled to the mountains for the day. My girls (and a friend) love photo opportunities. They love to put on summer dresses and pile on LOTS of charm and dance, swing, twirl. A few ladies in their 60's were inspired and held hands and skipped like my girls were - they ended up giggling and saying how young it made them feel. Their men WERE smiling as they walked behind them... :)
To get out in the summertime and enjoy the days, to breath in the air, notice the new flowers blooming, the sheep and cows dotting the hills... yes. I hope they always find time to do this together.
