MIAGD: make it a great day
Be a sparkler!
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!
