I was helping watch my granddaughter yesterday and I love how it reminds me to look at life in a different light. When I’m with her I see that wonderment and discovery with that inquiring mind trying to figure things out. And that unbridled smile and laughter when things are going well.

Life between 1 and 2 years old is filled with discovery. Senses are being discovered. It’s almost like you can watch the gears turning inside their heads as they go through the day.

Then there is something we could all use a reminder of. Love begets Love. Their simple hug or raising their hand toward yours to help them with a big step. Or that full out run and leap towards you on the last step when playing peek a boo. Maybe just her falling asleep on your side or the enjoyment of a new food or combination of something together and her signing MORE to me.

You know it also reminds me that a nap in the middle of the day isn’t such a bad thing. Wish I had time to take one. Maybe today. Anyway, it was a great day with the exception that I didn’t get to shoot much of anything. Let’s hope I can get my behind outside today.

And yes I’m aware my hardwood floors above need help. They are being refinished next month.

Random of Thoughts of the Day

  • There are a lot of people now who need help. Soon there will be even more that need help. So let’s get to the business of helping them. Isn’t that the right thing to do?
  • Been a long time since the troops (my best friends) and I were on maneuvers.
  • It’s going to be a strange holiday season ahead.
  • Funny how hypocrites don’t know who they are. Or maybe they do and don’t care?

I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
