Peace and Safety in Daddy's Arms

Guilt over my Grinchly rant, (see previous post) and the posting of gross photos used to illustrate my point, set me off on a hunt for a pleasant photo in my personal library. Sweeping southwest landscapes and majestic glacial vistas caught my eye. Then this picture came up. Taken three years ago this week, this family photo shows Caroline sleeping on Tom's chest while he wears a shirt she'd selected and given him on Father's Day of the same year which reads, "World's Greatest Dad".

Sweet, isn't it.

Better?

Definitely better.

Leisel! I'm so happy to hear from you. I'm happy I caught that moment, too. She looks so little to me in this picture. Growing like a beautiful flower, just like you and your sisters have.

Merry Christmas, Friend!

AWWWW!
They'll always be Daddy's little girls...even when they're 30. ;)

This you know first hand, huh!

This is one of life's beauties, that's for sure.

The title of this post says it all Cherie. A sweet gentle picture.

I need to figure out that I can reach the comment link without scrolling down so far the snot comes into view again.

Hang on...

Ah, that's better! Yes beautiful, sweet picture!

Soooo peaceful!! They ARE always 'Daddy's Girls'. Every time one of ours asks for me 1st I know she's got a problem; when the boys call and ask for SWMBO 1st, they've got a problem. Some things seem to stay the same forever. (40+ years so far anyway)

Ah, Cecily, thanks for the snicker. You're so funny!


And Mike, how sweet it is to know that these, the important things, stay the same.

Thanks, Annie (Almost didn't see you comment there.)
