I went to yoga today - a new place - called Black Swan Yoga - 
really loved it.  Check them out here:
Todays instructor played music throughout the class.
This song came on at the end (a different rendition) but the lyrics
went straight to my heart.  I started tearing up it was nuts.
I kept thinking why am I tearing up and then the thoughts flooded
my mind.  Thoughts of growing up.
The song is from The Muppets and it is 1970 to a T.
My dad was there, my mom, my siblings, our dog, our old house - 
I miss it.  I miss it so much.
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Bewitched (the show). Cheetos. 
Playing carpool with my bike.  Jogging at dusk with my parents riding their 
bikes behind me. My parents walking and talking after
my dad got home from work.
It was so simple then.
And it made me realize something - yes there were some rough times, 
dysfunctional stuff but most of what I remember are the comforts
of our home and my family.  The pool, the trampoline, the beach.
There have been times when I am so hard on my parents - why did they do
X and why did they say Y and I guess what they say about age is right...I'm softening.  Softening because I realize that we are all doing the best we can.
Life is awesome but damn it's hard too.
And then you tack on kiddos, jobs, your home,
the dogs, friends, family and it can be ALOT.
I guess my point is is that I'm thankful for the memories I have.
And for Kermit the Frog singing this sweet song that makes me cry
EVERYTIME I hear it!!
