This was taken when Jack was only about half the age that he is now (2 months) but shows Sadie’s affection for him. As we “wind-down” 2014 and bring on 2015 it is with the hope and prayer that more of this kind of affection can be demonstrated throughout the country and world. Many problems could be solved by the simple admonition to "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. We are privileged to live in a community where even a trip to the grocery story like we made this morning is a social visit. Our coffee group is an example of varied opinions and yet we share basic beliefs and can appreciate why we see things from a differing perspective. Let us all strive to make 2015 a year in which we try to show more affection, become more sensitive to the feelings of others, and stay optimistic. How can an old man do anything other with a couple Great Grandkids as models.
