I look at you and I do not see
the passage of time.
I see my little girl
eating birthday cake for breakfast
playing basketball at night,
reading a book,
playing in the neighborhood Olympics,
or holding tightly to a cuddle-worn “bun-bunny.” Continue reading “i look at you.”
Our daughter is a teacher.
A Special teacher!
And she is one of the many thousands who are called to a vocation of teaching

it’s the monday giggles…
Life isn’t just about keeping score.
It’s not about how many people call you
And it’s not about who you’ve dated or haven’t dated at all.
It isn’t about who you’ve kissed,
What sport you play,
Or which guy or girl likes you.
It’s not about your shoes or your hair
Or the color of your skin,
Or where you live or go to school.
In fact it’s not about money,
Clothes, or colleges that accept you or not.
Life isn’t about if you have lots of friends or if you are alone,
And it’s not about how accepted or unaccepted you are.
Life isn’t about that.
But life is about who you love and who you hurt.
It’s about how you feel about yourself.
It’s about trust, happiness, and compassion.
It’s about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance
And building confidence.
It’s about what you say and what you mean.
It’s about seeing people for who they are and not for what they have.
Most of all it is choosing to use your life.
In a way that could have never been achieved otherwise.
These choices are what life’s about.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35
May you find a special way to alley-oop your love ‘into action’ today…and may it have a giggle attached with it!
hugs n’ slam-dunked blessings filled with love for (all of) you !
