"Not murdering ones immediate family."
Haha....perhaps it needs a slight adjustment to say "Not murdering ones immediate or extended family." No?Just sayin.... ;)
Hmmm, Roy, do you need guards at your house?
Having one's family on the opposite side of the globe works well and is a little less extreme!
True healthpsych, but the shipping costs an arm and a leg...
I had a simple holiday pleasure today.Waiting in the car w/my 8yo daughter (high-functioning autism, she still just seems to be retaining that sweet innocence of younger childhood, longer, very bright though, but not as sophisticated as other children, if you know what I mean by that).ANYWAY! I delight in her delight in everything, and the ole Rudolph song came on the radio, and she starts singing with an innocent glee that I wish could be captured forever (which it has been, in my heart!). I joined in, and she'd also add the bits about "like LINColn", and "like Monopoly" for the history and games parts of the song.I just really reveled in the moment and the beautiful spirit of childhood that she just epitomizes for me, although I need to be wary of not idealizing her or too many expectations, but still, she is just such a beautiful person, and moments like this really are a gift from God, to me.This is when being a mother is the bestest thing in the whole world.
