Water Day

We had a morning at the water park yesterday.

I'm extremely happy that someone figured out that kids want to play at the park regardless if it's 115 degrees - adding water to play in makes it bearable.
My friend Arlene met me at the park with her grandson. The park has done an excellent job of placing tables in front of the play area with nice shade trees surrounding. We were able to sit and talk and have a close eye on the kids as they ran from the water area to the slide on the playground.

It was a nice little break for us...the ups and downs of my father in law tend to rest heavy on my heart - it's nice to switch my thoughts for a little while.

Update: Yesterday he was non - responsive most of the day so the care facility decided it wasn't a good idea to bring him home because he now requires 24 hour care. He was agitated most of the day when he was checked in the facility so they gave him a sedative. After that he became non - responsive, ended up going a day without food, liquids and no meds. Finally around 5 pm he was awake but wouldn't eat and was only making grunting sounds.                                                                                  

Praying he'll be able to go home today.

Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
