what matters

there are cowards who think themselves brave by hurting the defenseless. In the end they will be brought down for they are empty vessels. I choose to think of love and hope now.

Little Gabe Kangarooing with his father — fighting to preserve what some waste so foolishly.

    Oh, what a lovely picture – Gabe with his Daddy! Praying there will be many, many, many more in the years to come. Are Gabe’s Mummy and Daddy singing and talking to him? I read a report on premies the other day that says those who are sung to grow and thrive at a faster rate.

    A wonderful thought for today! Thank you…

    β€œI wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
    “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

      yes — that little guy’s a fighter. Three members of our bike club ran the Boston today. No one hurt, one very close to the explosion.

      What a crazy world.

        Yes, my wife and I are watching the Boston incident on internet now. NYC is on alert and that cuts close to home as our son lives/works in Manhattan.

        Glad that your pals came through okay.

        Man, where is all this taking us —
