“Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.” –Walt Disney
I love Walt Disney, and like this saying. But I also believe that for most adults, a lot can be lost when going from being a kid to being an adult. Fortunately, there is a cure. Grandchildren! Having grandchildren can help us to recapture much of what we lost when we ‘grew up’. We can re-discover that sense of wonder, the power of imagination to change and create whole worlds, and the sheer joy of playing and of being alive.
One of my greatest blessings is being a grandparent. In fact, I just decided to write a song about it. Stay tuned…
