The progress of Magick in life.
As a child, we wanted to make colorful butterflies and unicorns.
(Unless the Unicorn stomps them into the ground or the butterfly 's on them.)
As a Teenager, we were more inclined to want acne to disappear and parents too.
(At this age to have clear skin and be authority free is the goal) (According to the mother’s handbook, at this time, you can Curse them. "I hope all your kids grow up just like you!)
Twenty-something, we wanted good grades in college, find a mate, marry &have babies. Student loan comes due. (College? Fun while it lasts. Mate, marriage & babies? What were you thinking?)
Thirty-something, raise the kids, pay bills & guide your kids through the tweens, teens, puberty, & pimples. (You get gray hair and love handles, but you’ve earned them.)
Forty-something, Kids, mortgage, and jobs continue. Start coloring your hair.
( “Give peace a chance.” Send kids off to college) Free, free, I’m free at last!
Then, out of the blue, one comes home and tell you you’re going to be a Grandma? Then is when you wonder, did I do this to my mother" So sorry mom.
Fifty-something, your kids have their own home & kids. The lovely kids are spoiled, but you can go home saying, yep I did that. The gray isn’t covering so well anymore. Maybe wigs?
Sixty-something, slowing down, joints stiff. Had a knee replacement and the old man is regressing
“Get me a drink”. He’ll say.
"You’re 3 feet from the fridge, get it yourself. "
“P-l-e-a-s-e?” MY Prince, the love of my life whines,
“What are you, 6 now?”
“Yes. So could you get me a drink?” And I thought I’d raised all my kids.
Seventy-Something, finally retired and raising my last child. Just to let you know motherhood never ends.
From here on out, I’m taking it day by day… Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
No Wait, that’s not right, oh yeh
