Birthdays are special! But are even more special when very special people in your life celebrate birthdays only 2 days apart. Like husband and Grandson. That’s why this year, to make their birth dates rise to the celebration, I gathered them both and took them to see the Broadway play BEETLEJUICE the Musical.
Now mind you, this was not an easy gathering. My husband, who works in Manhattan, doesn’t like to spend any time in the city on his days off. As for my grandson. Well, he just turned 9, so life is still a bowl full of kittens. 🙂
This Saturday’s adventure ride to the big city did end up to be a little more eventful. It was the first time we got to seat on one of the LIRR Double Decker trains. We sat high up, looking down onto the streets, as the the train whooshed by. When we arrived, at Penn Station, we couldn’t help but salute Old Glory, as it hung high directing our exit to the NYC trains, which was not so adventurous.
The play did not start on time and I became fearful of the down time. I thought if BEETLEJUICE doesn’t start soon my grandson would begin missing his sister and/or mother. For the truth be told, this was the very first time he has ventured out without the accompaniment of his sister. He didn’t say a word. This was good and it was a tiny bit sad, my grandson is growing up.
When the play finally began it was a easy bike ride up hill. BEETLEJUICE – The Musical made us laugh, kept us entertained, offered so much more than what I had expect. BEETLEJUICE gave the audience a few surprises. When the play was over I did notice that my non-smiling husband was exiting with an entertained heart.
Then it was time to head on home.
As I watched them strolling, very quickly down Broadway, to catch the train, I then realized that this was my musical moment of the day, cause I was the orchestrator and they the music that always brings me joy.
Behind all of our stories there is our moms’ story. They are amazing, loving, strong, happy, selfless and graceful. Because of them we have our story and we have been blessed with children and grandchildren.
This is our circle of life. We are so happy to share another Mothers’ Day together, nothing fancy just love being together, sharing a meal, making a toast and spending time together. We have found it is best to keep things simple.
The truth is we did get it from our mamas. Mom to the world you are a mother but to us you are the world. Happy Mothers’ Day.
