I had to chuckle to myself when I read StoryWorth’s question for this week. “What advice would you give your great-grandchildren?”
I don’t admit to being very good at math but even I know how to add… and the sum of the numbers it would take for my grandchildren to grow up, marry and possibly have children( my great grandchildren) would total…“deceased” for me! 🤣
As the expression goes… I am getting ” Up There” and I still have very young grandchildren! But actually my advice remains the same.
” Be kind, Be kind, Be kind.” I sure wish I could claim this quote ( because it is my favorite) but Henry James beat me to it. After a lifetime of ups and downs, successes and failures, happiness and sadness… I intuitively understand now that whatever is sent out into the universe returns to us… whether it be a kindness boomerang or a meanest boomerang!
It is up to us to discover that the secret to happiness doesn’t rotate around us and our needs… but outwardly to others and their needs
So future grandchildren… whenever you fall into the slumps…think of someone else beside yourself and do something for them. It is amazing how fast the world can right itself again when you perform one simple act of kindness. For starters smile at a stranger and wish them a good day!
So until tomorrow… “In a world where you can be anything…BE KIND!

Yesterday Rutledge and Lachlan started back to school -third and first grades respectively while Eloise returns to pre-school. Walsh took two pictures
1. The way we were on the first day -our good memory perception from the past and … now
2. Reality now on the first day of school. The whole family sat down and decided to take every precaution available to keep the family members safe at school and pray for a safe healthy return for all children.
