Dear readers and fellow bloggers:
Good morning and Happy Sunday to you all. Today we awoke with a desperately grey cast sky in South Florida and it has been raining intermittently, which put is in a surprising melancholic mood. As we are shifting through old pictures to compose a comprehensive family album, we came across this picture taken in the Parque Camet of Mar del Plata, Argentina, in 1998. My wife and I had hired a pony trainer to make our children Noël Marie and Gian Luca experience their first equine ride.
We close our eyes and see the excited apprehension of our son (he was two years old at the time) as he was trying to hold firm to the reins, as the trainer instructed him to do; in the meantime, our daughter (she was nine years then) cheekily smiles with the full confidence of a born amazon. For the parents, our children are and will always be “our babies'”, no matter how hard they poke fun at us.
Thank you God Almighty for giving us the privilege of having these two kids and enjoy their company.
If it’s raining too in your corner of the world, feel free to let go of our usual defensiveness to allow your spirit to be invaded by these sweet-sour memories that define us as caring human beings.
Life is worth living. Every minute of it. Do not ever forget it. May God Almighty bless you all.
Stay distant. stay safe. stay beautiful.
What do you think? Please tell us.
Don’t leave me alone.
