Choices in Life

With an eye towards Mother's Day coming up this next Sunday and Father's Day in a few more weeks, I'm posting a version of an pictorial email I've received from several people.

Choices in life

Many of life's decisions are not simple. The importance of the initial decision should always be examined in light of the longterm consequences. Consider the following two choices....

Should you get a dog ....

...or have children?

I would choose children again in a heart beat. They are indeed a blessing from the Lord! And then there's grandchildren - icing on the cake after enjoying your children! Here's a picture of our little guy taken this morning...

We had a relatively uneventful trip up to Detroit this past Saturday, except for having to fight our way through Kentucky. It rained a lot, sometimes in torrents, plus there was an accident around Berea, KY, that had the traffic backed up for quite a distance. Fortunately when we had to stop, it was literally right beside the exit to Berea. We got off, stretched our legs, and enjoyed a Frosty at Wendy's before taking a detour on US 25 to Richmond. Unfortunately, by that time half of the nation's drivers who were on the road that day were also on that same detour.

The baby dedication Sunday morning was very nice, and we were happy to have been able to be there. We have already enjoyed holding Drew and doing our job - spoiling him. 😎

Today I spent some time setting up my Mother's Day present to my wife and our daughter Megan. I got the idea several weeks ago from a long-time ivman reader who has grandchildren living far from her - it's webcams on Meg's computer and on ours. I got everything installed today, and it works! We'll have to see how it works when we get back home. 😎

    Hey Rob–that should be Frosty, not Frostie! I can’t believe you missspelled that! Better fix it right away. 🙂

    Rob adds:
    Phew! Thanks, Bet! I had written it plural first, but then I didn’t want it to look like Grandma and Grandpa each got several, so I reworded, dropping only the “s” at the end. I’ll fix it right away. BTW, for some reason, you comment went again into the spam folder. Must be something about the word “bet.” 😎
