The Off Beat


(my grandsons have been here all week)

Last week , while driving back from a day trip to the beach,

I looked in the rear view mirror,

while the song you are now hearing was playing on my IPod,

and my two grandsons were singing along



looking out their respective Hauler 2 windows,

nodding their heads


what I like to call


Off Beat

the cool beat,

the not trying so hard beat,

the beat that follows the listening,

the beat that shows you have the confidence



because it isn’t going anywhere,

which is so, so different than

on the beat

I love this post! Not because your grandchildren are so darn cute (which they are!), but because it's clear that you are the kind of grandmother that everyone hopes for and that I was lucky enough to have and so were my who loves everything about them!

Obviously they get their rhythm of life from you! No one I know marches to the beat of their own drum better than you.
