THE LULU CHRONICLES
Okay, yesterday got by me without it even dawning on me that it was Thursday. When I laid my head down on my pillow last night I realized I hadn’t posted a Thursday blog. Maybe two people noticed, if that. However, I have a good excuse. I spent the day with Nellie Rose and her big brothers, Cormac and Cian.
Life is about choices as you well know. And, while there were all kinds of things I could have been doing yesterday, writing a blog for starters, I chose Nellie and her brothers. Here’s a review: I experienced smiles and cooing from Nellie Rose for the first time. She’s two months old you know, those are big deals; Cormac taught me how to shoot his bow and arrow. He’s three. It’s what he’s into these days. And, Cian and I had a lovely ongoing conversation about why I was there and his Papa wasn’t. He’s not quite two yet, but a real man’s man, and Papa’s boy.
It was a sweet day. Sorry, I went AWOL. But if I have a choice between playing with grandchildren or staying home and writing a blog, chances are I’m going to choose the kids. Please don’t be offended. You are important to me and if you coo-ed as sweet as Nellie Rose, well…
Today, it’s back to writing and laundry and vacuuming and whatever. But first things first, and yesterday that first thing was Nellie Rose and her brothers. And you know what? I don’t expect anything less from you. The people in your life should always take first billing. God may have created people last, but He didn’t intend for us to be in last place. Oh, no, He saved the best till last and we came with instructions: “Go be a family.”
Okay, I’m outta here. See you next Tuesday…
