Afternoon Edition - 7/1/07
Sometimes when you’re feeling down you have to turn to the one person who can really pick you up – and fast! My nephew and cohort, Daylen, is my boy! He knows how to take advantage of me, abuse me and make me feel silly… all in the name of fun! He brings out the innocence that is being a child and the beauty and freshness in life. Since I’ve chosen never to have children, Daylen and my other nephew Chris are my heart. Today, I went over to sit with Daylen while my sis went shopping and he and I decided to raid the kitchen for prohibited snacks and soft drinks. He went on to tell me that my dog was old and kind of stinky. Not exactly what I was looking to hear about Busta, but enough to make me laugh out loud! Daylen has a personality that outshines even that of his uncle – and coming from a one-man show like myself, that’s a BIG compliment. Oh…almost forgot to mention! Daylen got his first haircut in April for his second birthday, so he’s sporting his new do. As many of you may recall, Daylen’s hair was down his back just a few months ago. Thanks Daylen! You made your uncle lighten-up a bit! I’m keeping your first pony tail and having it framed for my foyer. I’ll be sure to show all you friends when you hit that awkward teen stage.
Sometimes in our issues and drama, we fail to see the beauty and cheerfulness in someone or something else.
Who/What stands to be the one person/thing that cheers you up the fastest?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
