One topic that inevitable arises when baby boomers gather is how things were different when we were younger. Peppered throughout the conversation are the words "You can't let kids do that anymore." When my generation was younger, we played outside until it was way beyond dark. We came home from school and rode our bikes everywhere. We walked to town to buy candy at the Sterlings Store downtown. Every generation looks back. It's natural.
It's also a natural progression of society, unfortunately so.
My mother recently read me something she saw on Facebook. I believe it's worth sharing here in its entirety:
â€œDon't we all want a joy-filled life? Then let's get it. Life is too short not to, my friends. Strengthen up those struggle muscles (yes, we all have them) and get an emotional makeover. It is time to start clearing out the junk and stop tolerating the funk. You have done all you can do as long as you can, and it's time to give it all to God.
â€œHow? Stand up â€¦ Kick the dirt â€¦ Breathe in â€¦ Pray â€¦
