Once in a great while

It seems to me that all to often the actions of us so called grown ups can have knock on affects far and beyond what our tiny little selfish minds care to acknowledge. We seem to hold on to a grudge for years up to the point that we can actually forget why we were so pissed off in the first place. But once in a great while, someone stands up and says enough is enough.

Today Jack got to spend a whole heap of time with family he had never met before and I wept with pure joy. Although at work all day, I kept in touch with Mrs D for regular updates and I'm reliably informed they had a great time.

I wonder if the day will ever come when as so called adults, we are able to once again recapture the simple moment by moment innocence we see in the eyes of our children. You see, Jack couldn't care less about family feuds and things long since passed, nor could Eddie and Ronnie. What they care about is here and now and for them, that's all that matters. The end result is indeed a truly life changing realisation, should we choose to pay attention.
