“Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections, children tend to be sticky.”  Fran Lebowitz

And Sticky she is!  

We decorated Christmas cookies which, of course, ended up more on her than in her.  I love the look in her eyes as she’s licking the frosting and sprinkles from her fingers.  It would be very interesting to crawl inside her little head and see the world through her eyes.  

And she loved bath time as much as she did decorating the cookies . . .



“There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child.  There are seven million.”  Walt Streightiff

I just love the sparkle in my Grand Daughter’s eyes . . . she’s showing off her booty from a birthday Pinata.  You would think that she’s just hit a Million Dollar Lotto jackpot!  Such innocence, and joy.  It’s so sad to see this innocence and joy gradually disappear as we grow older and the realities and responsibilities of life sink in.  I want to look at this photo every day as a reminder of what I strive for . . . the same joy and excitement for everything I do.  I just can’t feel sad or depressed when I look at this photo of her . . . 



What I Love About You…

The sparkle in your eye,
The warmth of your skin.
Your breath on my neck,
That quivers within.

The touch of your hand,
The smell of your hair.
The kindness in your smile,
That strength in your stare.

Your kiss on my lips,
Your body near mine.
The stroke of your touch,
That feeling inside.

The sound of your voice,
Compassion in your embrace.
The serenity in your stride,
The power in your face.

The calming of your presence,
The beating of your heart.
The promise of tomorrow,
That we may never part.

The beauty of your kiss,
and that magic in your touch.
It is for all these reasons and more,
Why I love you so much.
