(how to stay) forever young

I came home on Friday wanting to crawl into a dark cave somewhere, hibernate, and stay there for a long time.  I wanted to stay in the dark for as long as it takes for the blackberries to ripen and be ready for picking, or until the snow has melted completely at the end of the road up to Mt. Baker, or Lake Whatcom is warm enough for a summer dip. In other words, I wanted to stay asleep until sometime in August.

To say it’s been a rough week is an understatement. Friday night I wallowed in weariness, cried away my tension, pulled out a project to work on for the entire weekend and stayed home – mostly.  There was Easter stuff to do and some grocery shopping but really, for the most part I’ve been in my favorite chair in the living room putting together a new Journey doll for a friend and catching up on Parenthood on Netflix.

Just listening to the singing of Forever Young when they open each episode is enough to cheer me up.  I love that song.  And I love the Bravermans!

I’m not quite ready for Monday, but almost.

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.
