Lala and I spent last weekend with you. We watched your momma and daddy make a cake and they watched me make what we call in the family, “quick sauce”…but we cook it for about three hours to really make it good.
All in all it was a very simple weekend of just being together with folks we love and sharing a meal together.
You seemed to enjoy it but then again you didn’t have much choice. It’s not like you could get up and leave when you wanted to.
There will come a time Alice when you can just up and leave and go do your thing. There will come a time Alice when the kind of weekend we had last weekend will just simply be boring to you.
But then there will also come a time in your life Alice when you can’t wait to come home and have a weekend just like we just had.
Circle of life?
Truth is it may come sooner than later in your life because your mother and daddy already understand the beauty of simplicity. They already understand the wonderful aspect of just being.You pay attention to the way they “just be” Alice and you will have learned a very valuable life lesson.
I can’t wait to “just be” with you again sweet Alice.
Wow, what a road trip you had for such a young fingerling! I know you got lots of love and attention! But there really is no place like home. That place where routine becomes routine. That place where you can really let your hair down. That place where you can just be you.
Truth is Alice is that you should learn to just be you no matter where you are. You should learn how to just be "at home" with Alice being Alice.
You might say, "How can I be anything but Alice?"
Well, there will be so many pushes and pulls in your life, trying to lure you into being other than who or what you are. Some call it "trying to fit in", some call it "peer pressure", some call it "wanting to be liked".
I promise you that if you will just come to love and like who Alice really is all that pushing and pulling will have no affect on you.
And one of the places you can always come to for that kind of experience is HOME. Just where you are right now Alice.
So welcome home Alice. We love you just the way you are!!!
