Your Life…

We spend a lot of time thinking about tomorrow. It starts young “When I grow up…”. We always think we have tomorrow, until we don’t. I spend a lot of time these days with an under four age group. The youngest, learning to walk,… Continue Reading “Your Life…”

The Best Way…

One thing I’m missing: smiles. I can’t see them – masks only reveal eyes. So I’m trying to see those, but I’ve noticed this: people are looking down a lot these days. I’ve wondered about the missing smiles and the downcast eyes. Wondering how… Continue Reading “The Best Way…”

Indestructible…

Doesn’t take long for toddlers (ages one and three you know who you are) to show how easily something can be…well let’s just say not how it looked prior to their curious hands. Because I value the smiles and trust and love and fun… Continue Reading “Indestructible…”

Restless…

Easter – there is no more momentous event. Someone, a perfect Someone, was willing to make the absolute sacrifice – making it possible for you and me…to live forever. What kind of crazy love is that? The best, the only true. I’m thinking about… Continue Reading “Restless…”

Wonder-full Plans…

I’m noticing lately all us wanderers. I can’t help but think: what if, instead, we were wonderers? We wander around stores looking for gifts. We wander around outdoors seeking quiet. We wander all our days and what do we find? Emptiness mostly. So I’m… Continue Reading “Wonder-full Plans…”

Have Fun…

Remember your mom calling after you as you went out to play: ‘Have fun…’ ? It’s a bit hard to recall just how that works. How does one have fun when the bills pile high, the workload grows, sad things creep in? I have… Continue Reading “Have Fun…”

Soaked…

Rain, rain, rain – for weeks.┬áThe canvas canopy over an outdoor swing was sagging – I pushed up and – whoosh – over the edge cascaded water. It caught the attention of my one year old grandson, but I hadn’t noticed he had walked… Continue Reading “Soaked…”

Just Try…

Aren’t we all a little tired or tweets, likes, smileys, and thumbs up? The constant desire for more and the let down of not being ‘liked’ – by people we don’t even know.┬áMaybe we need an ‘insincere love’ break. Facebook posts get lost in… Continue Reading “Just Try…”

HAPPY TODDLER PLAYTIME
