Sorry I Quit

MY OFFICIAL RESIGNATION
I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year-old again
Here is my list of wants
 
1.  I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant.
2.I want to walk to the Piggly Wiggly with a dollar and come home with a whole bag of bubblegum.
3.  I want to go to Baskin Robbins and stare at all the flavors of ice cream and them pick the same kind I always do.
4.  I want to take my Grandma there and watch how she passes up all the flavors and declares that only vanilla will do....remember Mom?
5. I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.
6.I want to make little boats and sail them down the curb when the rain comes....I want it to rain.
7.I want to think M&Msare better than money because you can eat them.
 8.I want to climb the big tree in the middle of the yard at my childhood home and pretend I live there.
 
9.I want to wake up on Saturday and watch Shirley Temple.
 
10. I want to sneak out of bed when my parents aren't looking and watch Carol Burnett which was on way past my bedtime.
 
11.I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer's day.
 
12.I want to return to a time when life was simple, when all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care.
All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.
I want to think the world is fair.
That everyone is honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is possible.
I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.
I want to live simple again.
I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes,
mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones.
I want to believe in the power of smiles,ATT000541.gif hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.
So . . .. here's my checkbook and my car keys, my credit card bills and my investment statements. I am officially resigning from adulthood.
And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first, cause........
....."Tag! You're it."
Try to Remember the Simple Things in Life. ATT000631.gif
((((((((((((((HUGS FOR EVERYONE))))))))))))))
Hope Ya'll join me !
And remember....
The tree in the middle of the yard is base for tag and hide and seek.
It is second base for baseball games
And if you climb real high and hold on tight it works to find your dreams.
