Good morning dear blogging friends. Another Day to enjoy. I cannot believe it, but I will see the doctor yet again over this cold. After 3 weeks of antibiotics and still troubled with this. Seems like something needs to happen. I am hoping that at least the pneumonia is under control. Will see after the appointment this afternoon.
Well, it seems that once I tarted on my memory time travel, it has sparked so many more thoughts of places that are no longer here for the sharing. I remember that one of the places that I used to enjoy going to as a child was Adventure Land. Anyone in the Chicago land area remember it? It was in Mundelion, out on Lake Ave. I remember it like it was yesterday. There were clowns there that seemed to be dressed more like Mimes. There was a train ride that went pat the lollipop tree. They were the old safety pops and you could try to reach out and grab one as the train went past it. It was like grabbing the ring on the Merry Go Round. There were houses that you could go in. I remember recently looking at a photo of my Grandmother and I when we went there. Pretty funny today to think that my Grandma had on a pair of pants. Shocked the daylights out of me. I don't ever remember her in a pair of pants. She always wore at home a house dress that she called a "Mickey Mouse". Did anyone else ever hear of a house dress termed that? I would be curious to know.
I decided that today's word will be ADVENTURE. It seems when you think of going on an ADVENTURE that it was something, or someplace exciting or different. I think that when I think of ADVENTURE Land, it was always an ADVENTURE. I always looked forward to what I might do there or what I might see. I feel that everyday in my life is some sort of ADVENTURE. When I wake up in the morning, I am never sure of the ADVENTURE that lies before me. As a child, each time I read a book....I took an ADVENTURE. I went where ever the characters took me. My favorite books were the Nancy Drew Books. She was always on an ADVENTURE of some sort. I remember reading them on the front porch during the summers. My summer vacations were Nancy Drew ADVENTURES Whether it was in the hidden Staircase or the Quest of the Missing Map, I knew that would discover something wonderful and exciting. Today, when I am researching or working on a new story to tell, it is an ADVENTURE to me because I never know where the research will take me, or what I might learn. When my mind wanders, it brings thoughts to it that often times leads me to take the ADVENTURE to find out more about it. Each person that I interact with becomes a new ADVENTURE. Did you ever notice how you can do the same thing with different people and you can get something different out of each experience. When I lay my head on my pillow at the end of the day, I thank God for the ADVENTURE He had me on. Whether it was a good or difficult day, I learned something. I grew just a little bit more. Sometimes it is learning about a place or a thing, and sometimes it is about people. Did you ever think you really knew someone and then you discovered something you never dreamed possible concerning them. Life is a moment by moment ADVENTURE. I am greatful for the chances that I have been given to experience them. How about you?
