When you are young and carefree,
it does not matter that you choose to sit on the swing in a backward position, or that the swing is too small for you,
it doesn't even matter if you choose to wear your muddy shoes on the wrong feet.

And, it is okay to wear your ice cream tee shirt, describing a perfect day, made up of ice cream in many forms. 

When you are young and carefree, you find great happiness having access to a trowel and lots of fresh dirt in which to dig, and yes, it does not matter if you wear your hat backwards.  Whatever feels right for you.

They are unaware of all that is happening in their world.  They feel secure and content to live their young lives for the moment, not the least bit worried about what tomorrow may hold.

But, when you are older like their grandpa is, life takes on many different perspectives.  One of those being, that his portion of ice cream is only that amount that fits into the small jelly jar, and only on occasion.  Vanilla ice cream with caramel syrup and sliced almonds, one of his favorites.  Ice cream every hour on the hour, like the tee shirt states, just will not work for him.

Speaking of ice cream, you may want to visit the beautifully artistic blog of "Bluebird Notes".  The gifted lady who creates that blog has just completed a book titled "Everything Goes With Ice Cream".  From my visits to her blog, I know it will be a book I would want to purchase someday.  What a gifted lady she is!

Thanks for stopping by today!
