Instead of writing something of my own I thought I'd just add a few quotes that I found on the web:

If my heart can become pure and simple, like that of a child, I
think there probably can be no greater happiness than this. ~ Kitaro Nishida

While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.
~ Angela Schwindt

Loving a baby is a circular business, a kind of feedback loop. The more you give the more you get and the more you get the more you feel like giving.
~ Penelope Leach

There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven million. ~ Walt Streightiff

Don't forget that compared to a grownup person every baby is a genius.
~ May Sarton

A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for. ~ Anonymous

Blue Angels

Watching the Blue Angels this weekend reminded me so much about my childhood. Remembering when they came into town every year and hearing the rumble and roar of the jet engines while flying really low overhead (low enough to see every rivet) would really get us excited about the show!

Once the gates would open, we would ride our bikes over to Miramar, cruise to the show, and stay there all day. I never thought that I would ever leave the neighborhood and that I would be here every year to watch them.

Now I’m older… much older. I’ve got a wife, kids, and even a grandchild. And I also live far away from my hometown. So I brought my kids this year to see them. It made me feel good seeing that they got as excited as I did when I was a kid. I’m so glad some things never change!
