Recently, I have become very aware of how busy life is, no, I didn’t just wake up yesterday and realize it. Over the last few years my twin boys have gotten older thus a lot busier with activities.
I don’t know if it’s just my twins but since the beginning mine have been completely attached at the hip. I constantly ask adult twins or people who know twins…. if they still get along as adults. I have heard way more no’s thank yes’s. I would say there is something special about having multiples…my twins are something else. The connection is crazy real, crazy intense, and I hope it’s always crazy close!
This weekend we rocked the Yamaha Twin Engine for about 12-16 hours and two tanks. Sun was awesome…like therapy for me. Burning energy, no worries…completely blissed out.
Sunday, we had our longest and closest friends come with their children for the day. They live about an hour away with two kids about our ages, not twins, but just as busy as any other family out there, maybe even a bit busier.
So, I don’t get to see this friend of mine very often…I think one year we went 7 months without seeing each other maybe longer. It’s tough as children get older and move up thru the grades in school. It gets harder and harder to plan and see friends especially if you live an hour from each other. Even friends that live miles away somehow find their way back to each other.
Yesterday, in my complete blissed out state I realized I was in these… numbered hours of perfection (and I have written in my blog about perfection not existing, so here I go contradicting myself). Sitting and laughing with my friend, screaming over the boat engine and the yelling kids. It was heaven! And oh, did I laugh. The good kind, the belly laugh. The kind of laugh where a few hours later, that moment pops into your head again and you start laughing out loud.
I can’t really give you (my readers) one specific example of the joy that occurred yesterday on the river in a boat with our friends.
I will try a few words/phrases:
Being in the water (I love the water)
Playing with a foam football in the river
Splashing a dry person before they splash you
Cruising in the boat, good music, drinks
Jumping off the boat mid float
Laughing so hard you almost wet your pants
Chasing kids in the water
Tubing, floating, food
My twins finish school this week for the summer and my house is buzzing with excitement!! I hope you all have the kinds of friends we do and get to experience these moments of joy, bliss, and enchantment throughout life with them.
Enjoy your week, my friends!!
