Tell me what Christmas Is….. A young child asked, sitting in front of a Christmas tree
What is a father? Does having a child make you a father?
Ownership alone shouldn’t quality, just having a title isn’t good
Tears, pain, joy, laughter, acceptance and surrender
These are the measurement of fatherhood.
So laugh or smile, And when you do
Soon laughter and smiles, Will fill the rooms
And isn’t that more fun
Then a room full of gloom?
A Bleeding Heart

I understand now – you were the real friend

My First Memory. I remember sitting straight up on my bed, fully alert, filled with excitement. My pink wallpapered bedroom felt soft, cozy. The sun shining through the white painted weathered window frame of the 150 year old farm house. Later a homemade Barbie Doll Cake. This is joy.
I hear dishes. They are stacked and being washed. The dishwasher is being loaded.
I hear an offer to go out to the store to get anything we need. There is kindness here.
In our current Global environment, making contact is a big no, no. Rightly so, the spread of COVID-19 needs to be contained and the only way to flatten the curve and grow our success is to remove personal contact from our interactions.
