Wishing You A Tranquil Day Today!

tranquility

The noun tranquility means “a state of peace and quiet,” like the tranquility you feel at the shore of a quiet lake or inside a beautiful cathedral.

Tranquility can also describe a person’s disposition. How do you reach tranquility? Make peace with yourself, your life, and the people who drive you crazy. Tranquility can also come from spending time alone, like reading in front of the fireplace on a snowy afternoon. Meditation and yoga can help bring tranquility, by clearing your mind of constant worries.

Becoming a Grandparent!

So you’re about to become a grandparent!  Congratulations!

I have waited years for this to happen to me.  Most of my friends are grandparents already and I’ve anxiously awaited the exciting news to happen to me.  We all know that this is the crowning achievement of being a parent ourselves.  No matter what else our own children do, how accomplished they are, how smart they are or how funny they are, it all comes down to this.  THIS, my friends, means that you finally get to stop being just a parent.  You can now be a certified GRANDPARENT.  This is when you can stop worrying and stop being the responsible one.  You can stop advising your own kids and gently(?) reminding them of what they’re supposed to be doing and simply enjoy.  Yep, with a grandbaby, you don’t have to worry about any of that.  It’s parental bliss.  Somebody else can do all the heavy lifting while you sit back and enjoy the good stuff.  You get to spoil them, kiss them and hug them, fill their tummies with cookies and other good things to bribe them into loving you and then send them home for their temper tantrums, sleepless nights, and the number of other fun things we had to put up with as a parent.  Ahhh, the time is near!

Wait…is that a worry?
