A Woodland Walkway

October 15, 2013

   The photo above reminds me of my life. It is beautiful. The light shines through just enough to make for a pretty scene. The shadows represent the past and some not so great things, but beyond all of the dark, the light shines through.

   I will focus on the light. The bad times come only to make us appreciate the good times. It is a balance, one that must be tempered by ourselves. We have to stay positive, look for the good and simply move past the negative and what we can’t change. We must just learn to let go… no matter how tough that gets.

   I spent the day yesterday with my youngest grandson. I forgot just how many questions a five-year old has. I also reenforced my thinking that a coyote call is not the greatest gift for a small boy…much like a drum set, it is for parents only 😮  We had a great time. We looked for wild animals, told stories and even squeezed in some work.

   Time spent with family and friends is the light in our lives. I am guilty of not trying to bask in more of it. I am going to try to do a little better in that department. I saw what it can do…I looked into the beaming eyes of my grandson and I saw my son… and as I looked deeper…  I saw myself.
