Look Ma! No Teeth!

I love this photograph of my son.  He was probably 8 or 9 months old when it was taken. He's now 37.  I still feel the same way about  him...but I wonder if our "kids" find that weird?  They need to realize that mom's have a special bond with their children that is unexplainable unless you are one. I'm forever the quintessential,  sentimental, "that's my little boy" old fuddy duddy.


Abundance: The look of wonder in a child's eyes.

Abundance: is the scent of the first flowers of spring.

  1. How sweet and precious indeed.
    How lovely is everything that you share.

    Children are like kites

    You spend a lifetime trying to get them off the ground.
    You run with them until you're both breathless.
    They crash.
    They hit the rooftop.
    You patch and comfort, adjust and teach them.
    Finally they are airborne...
    They need more string and you keep letting it out.
    But with each twist of the ball of twine,
    there is a sadness that goes with joy.
    The kite becomes more distant,
    and you know it won't be long
    before that beautiful creature will snap the lifeline that binds you two together
    and will soar as it is meant to soar, free and alone.
    Only then do you know that you did your job. "


Would love to hear your comments!
