Today’s word is water. When I think of this word I am reminded of long baths, hot showers, walks in the rain, swimming, fishing, drinking (water that is), the sprinkler in the yard, water ballon fights and the ocean. But what picture should I share with you today….
I have this one from a month or so ago that shows the fun of water.
You should never miss an opportunity to make a memory with a child.
But today I am reminded that water is what keeps our body hydrated.
Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells, and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues. (mayoclinic.org)
Although not proven the average person has been taught that 8 glasses of water a day is what you should should drink….but all fluid count, water just helps flush out the bad stuff.
Drink up friends!
Today we were asked to think about the word street. Here is one of my favorites….
This is the street I grew up on. You can see the front of my car as I head down the street. To the left is the house I grew up in and on the right is the street light that I told time from. As long as the light wasn’t on I could be anywhere on the block. But when the light came on I had better have been on that front porch or I was spending the next few days in the house.
The houses around my parents home were full of people that I have fond memories of. There is the neighbor that carried me home when I fell off my bike and broke my arm (not sure who was crying harder me or her), or the man I called Grandpa that I watched every Cincinnati Reds game that was televised with from the age of 9 till I moved away from home. Most of them have moved on to the afterlife but they played an important roll in my childhood.
This picture brings a lot memories great for me.
