A smile today

Leave a comment

There are few things that you can’t help but smile at. One of them is children or animals playing in the snow. My children sent me some videos of their babies playing outside yesterday in the snow and it still is leaving me with a smile.

Even if they aren’t your own children or grandchildren, you could be watching the local news and see the kids outside during the weather or community segments and listen to the laughter and joy and you have to smile. Maybe your mind wanders back to the day you had a sled in hand.

How soon those days of going to Killer Hill have faded into past glory of all time sled rides. And now I watch the kids laugh and scream and go and go and go with endless energy. It kind of felt like a normal day for a change of pace. Funny how mother nature can get your attention when she wants.

Maybe its a good reminder to still laugh and play and enjoy life.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’ve got to admit I was wrong. I thought there was no way they would finish the football season and they have.
  • I’d love to create enough work to fill a gallery. But I’ll be happy to get some really good pieces to fill my office and a few important people’s walls.
  • If you live your life taking nothing for granted, you are wise beyond your years.
  • Some days staying inside where it’s nice and toasty is a good thing.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. 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.
