Sunday Scribblings: Two Peas in a Pod
One day, this boy will take the car for a spin. He'll go to college, meet a girl (lots of girls), land a good job, move from city to city to city, meet "the one," get married, have babies, and, with any luck, get the chance to hold his son in a photo like this while on vacation. One day, our boy will find this photo and show it to his son and daughter and say, "That's my dad. He's a great father." And he'll say that not because of the photo, but because he'll realize that all the little things--from playing baseball to walks around the block to the occasional "Time Out"--actually mean something. That all of these moments make a life.
One day, we'll be there as our son raises his own beautiful peas and makes a pod for his family. (Gosh, I guess that means we'll be grandpeas someday!)
Happy Birthday, Tim. You're a terrific father. Where does the time go?
