Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

This Love

Do you understand what it means to love someone? Do you understand what I mean when I speak of the pain involved with love, the fear involved with love, and the overwhelming joy and excitement involved with love? It is one end, and it is the other, and it is the inbetween.

Oh how I love thee my boy. Oh I how I love thee my peanut. Oh how I love thee my mate. Oh how I love your smile. Oh how I love your dance. Oh how I love your tiny little bottom and your teenie little toes. Oh how I love your curls.

When I reflect on you, your joy, the effect you have upon me, there is so much light and so much joy. You seep into all of me. I see you holding my hand. I feel you tugging my hair. I feel your lips against mine. A thousand times. Forever. For you have that effect upon me.

How many times have I been blessed that I feel love such as this not once, not twice, but thrice? And all at the same time? I am torn three different ways but healed in all directions.

God has truly smiled on me. He has given me gifts like no other. He has given me an eternity in the love I have for each of you. My Sandis. My Gracie. My Bob. My all of you. I love you.

A great expression of the Love you and your family share.

The kiddo things you mentioned make me want to share a funny with you.

You know what technique my daughter (4 years old) has started using to wake me up when she needs something?

Poking me in the eyeball.

It's a very nice way to wake up in the morning (or middle of the night). Very effective.
