MIAGD: Sparkler

MIAGD: make it a great day

Be a sparkler!


Last Monday, while waiting for fireworks to begin, I watched the little peeps enjoying Sparkler Air Design, 101.  

There were some doing sparklers for the first time, and all they could do was hold, and stare.  Then there were the pros: writing names, ages, pictures, and one family had a contest to see who could get through the alphabet before their sparkler pooped out.  

Then I spied a couple, probably in their 80s, having just as much fun with Sparkler art as their great-grandchildren. 

The best part was that their son, grandfather to the little peeps, was not participating.  His mother called, “Tom, you’re only 58.  You’re not too old to have fun.”  

Finally, I heard the guy say, “Light up, Dad.”

I hope there is never a time when I stop sparklering.  I see so many who just seem too tired to continue with life, or participate in it.  I never want to be one of those folks.

Always be a sparkler, and always make it a great day, Folks!
