Sharing the Playground

IMG_5652Good Evening, God

Just yesterday — on our morning walk up the hill — I saw a man doing exercises on the playground apparatus.  At first I just sort of peeked at him.  Then I congratulated him on his thinking to USE the playground equipment.  He brightened and showed me that he does three basic exercises:  modified pushups, modified pull-ups and sit-ups.  We introduced ourselves and I decided — we are doing it!

So here we are this morning — doing it   The photo is of Kit doing the pushups.  We both did all three exercises.  Not that many, but we got started!  Fortunately, there were just two youngsters sharing the equipment with us.  And, yes, we did get some curious looks from them.  But, they seemed happy to share.

I’m sitting here smiling, God.  I am just so pleased to have stumbled on a man who was able to think outside of the box and use playground equipment for adult exercises.  Kit did say — we could do this at home!  And he is right, that we could.  And I am right, that we haven’t.

My goal is to have this become A Small Habit.  Life is a marvelous mosaic of small pieces. The trick is to find and add valuable pieces into our daily lives.
