I have the happiest memories of playing at McDonald's playgrounds (they used to be outdoors!) and walking to school through the woods by our house. Composing stories on my musty typewriter in my bedroom. Decorating my Barbie Dreamhouse and dancing to Wham! and Neil Diamond in front of my Mom's big dresser mirror.
I am still filled up every day with more happiness, this time of my own children's memories, often wondering just what they'll cherish as good times and someday whisper to their sons or daughters as they tuck them into bed.
There may be a silver hair or two, laugh lines and tired eyes on the outside, but there will always be a kid in me.
