Scenes from my morning commute… 
This kid is like 8…what exactly is in that paper that he NEEDS to be up on and aware of by the time he gets to school? What ever happened to action figures? ;)
Future Bill Gates?

High up in the French Alps, on the top terrace of the Aiguille du Midi mountain peak, sits a new five-sided glass structure called the Chamonix Skywalk. The installation was inspired by the Grand Canyon’s glass skywalk, but it takes the concept to the next level. Instead of looking out over a railing, visitors can hover 1,035 meters (3,396 feet) above the valley in an enclosed transparent box, surrounded on all sides by custom-made 12 mm (1/2 inch) glass. The skywalk will open to the public on December 21, 2013.

When I get back to SOF - this is on my (growing) list of things to do and redo

Rick’s rock | Bells Beach, Australia | 12.19.1980 - 7.13.2013

M.L.D.        | Columbus, Ohio          | 12.20.1933 - 11.25.2013

S.M.           | Blackwood, NJ            | 6.6.1982 - 12.6.2013

Losing 3 people in 4 months is: eye opening. Life changing. Heart/gut wrenching and miserable.

Reflecting on the good times and especially the laughter - attempting to hold those memories close so when I stop and realize Ill never get another hug or kiss, it doesn’t kill me.

Many things to be thankful for this year - especially that I’m able to be with family this holiday season.

It might be sleeting and 19 degrees out but memories of summers on crescent lane are just as fresh as they were 23,24,25…26 years ago. Walking to Wendy’s holding my hand and singing to me..smelling the honeysuckle and wishing I’d never grow up. 
A frosty from Wendy’s is as close to Columbus, Ohio as I can get right now. 
I’ll be home soon, gram…to hold your hand one last time. 
RIP Marjorie (Sue) O’Hearn Deckard-Bernard. 1933-2013

4-8yr Olds Describing Love.

  • Rebecca, age 8: When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.
  • Terri, age 4: Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.
  • Danny, age 7: Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.
  • Nikka, age 6: If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.
  • Elaine, age 5: Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.
  • Chris, age 7: Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.
  • Mary Ann, age 4: Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.
