I adore the commercial by AARP which asks baby boomers and seniors, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I find myself answering with various unfulfilled dreams.
I had forgotten about dreaming lately. It is hard in the midst of realistic life dramas. But they must never, ever be forgotten. I pulled a book of my shelf that was a gift to me but never read. It is called The Dream Giver, by Bruce Wilkinson. I plan to read it this week! I get my dreams back!
What about you? What do you want to be when you grow up? Do you still have dreams?
For a long time hubby and I have ignored the invitations to join AARP. But now we welcome the benefits of being a baby boomer. We are no longer in denial. Our cards came in the mail today!
So, I have category called AARP Moments to record those times that remind us, in a humorous way, that we are good , seasoned, and like fine wine baby boomers. Remember this is meant to give us some humor in the midst of the drama. To poke fun at ourselves.
Send me your AARP moments and it will be posted for all to see. Include your site!
What are AARP moments? They are those moments when in our bucket load of experiances held in our heads, we realize that we are true baby boomers. There is no denying it.
Hubby has a one today:
I had an AARP moment when I watched US Marshalls again and it was as if I was seeing it for very first time.
