Well you made one heck of a road trip this week (10 hours)! All reports suggest you did just great. I hope you have fun with your mother's family.
I would much rather you be here but how selfish of me to want to limit your life.
Alice sometimes when we love something or someone so much we try to control that something or someone. Well that would not be real love. Real love is doing all you can to enable another to become all they were meant to be.
So forgive grampa we his love for you is all about what he needs and not about what you need.
I'll probably make that mistake on occasions but do feel free to remind me of what I said to you right here in this moment.
Friday Haiku For You
Loving you Alice
is letting you be Alice.
Dear Sweet Alice, (By the way, you have made your first trip to Grampa's house) I was sitting in my chair yesterday afternoon and looked up and saw this beautiful scene of you and your mother.
"Snap!"...I was able to frame that moment. I get teary eyed now just looking at it.
Alice I was granted the grace of "seeing love" right before my eyes.
As you go through life Alice, you will hear this word "love" in many contexts. It can be a confusing thing to try and figure out just what "love" is but maybe in those confusing times you can refer back to this simple moment in time and see "Love Framed", so you know just what it is.
Trusting and Caring...for sure these two words point to what love is in some way...
And so there you are trusting and there is your mother caring...
