Happy Love Day

Dear Sweet Young Ladies In My Life
(aka as my “Heart Expanders”}
So today we celebrate LOVE!
(aka as Valentine’s Day)
So what is LOVE?
Certainly not a Valentine’s Day Love!
But it’s still a fun day, so enjoy!
You both will probably spend more time discovering what Love Is Not, before you finally discover what Love IS.
Don’t fret about that too much…We’ve all done that!
How important and how difficult is it to talk about what love really is?
I type with fear and trembling!
I dare not say what it is for being wrong!
I dare not suggest that I have “the” answer.
I will say this:
When you think you have discovered what Love is,
Stop, take a deep breath and reflect  on those thoughts, share those thoughts with your elders, read some others’ thoughts and then step back, way back from your answer…
Then spend another year reading what all the great thinkers have said about love. Then read them all again.
I can promise you that love will not be what you think it is the first time you think you know what it is.
If this is scary, good!
It’s too important not to respect the mystery.
In the meantime,
Happy Valentine
Love you both,

Is The Grass Greener Or Is It Just A Matter Of Perspective

Morning "Circus Girl",

There you are  looking out the window, thinking that grass is greener on the other side.

I guess it could be but that's not the point of my little lesson this morning.

I want you to simply think about this:

The only place you can be is where you are. And where you are is the only place where your life is really happening!

So pay attention that place.

I'm not saying you shouldn't look beyond. I'm just saying if you are always looking beyond you might be missing the great life that is right in front of you.

Love you,

Sunday Haiku For You

There you are chill'in.
And here I am missing you!
What will Gram-pa do?!

Seems you’ve  taken to “standing alone” this past week. I figure you will be walking by Sunday, according to you pace. I don’t worry about you standing alone because I know your momma and daddy are right there to catch you if something should happen, since you are still trying to get the hang of this.

There may be other times in your life Alice when you have to “stand alone”, knowing there is no one there to catch you if you fall.

Here is what I want you to remember, if such a time should come.
It’s alright to fall from standing alone if you are standing alone for the right reasons.

What are the right reasons to stand alone at the risk of falling?
Well, hopefully all of us who are charged with mentoring you in this life in some way are able to point to some of those reasons as you grow older.

Meanwhile, don’t eat the dishwashing detergent!

Love you ,

I never could get this picture straight!
