Chris’ eyes light up when she speaks about her three granddaughters. She marvels at their excitement when they learn a fishing trip is planned at grandma’s place in Silverthorne. Her joy made a very young cowboy think that grandpas experience the same thrill about their grandkids. A picture is worth a thousand words. Grandchildren are […]

Indescribable

August 29, 2016

For me a house or an apartment becomes a home when you add one set of four legs, a happy tail, and that indescribable measure of love that we call a dog. Roger Caras

Nice!

August 27, 2016

A very young wife suggested that her even younger husband purchase a helmet as they might do some biking while in Boston. She liked the selection and encouraged working on a stern look to ward off hecklers.

A wise man

August 27, 2016

A wise man suggested that Eileen put three pennies in her pocket. He said that in tough times they’d remind her of the keys to life. She decided to take his advice and it has made a huge difference when days don’t go as planned.

Course correction

August 27, 2016

I have a friend named Larry who is a retired Air Force Pilot. One day he shared with me an interesting fact about flying. He said that, for every single degree you fly off course, you will miss your target landing spot by 92 feet for every mile you fly. That amounts to about one […]

Hope

What’s the best thing you can do in this situation? If you’re Catholic, make the sign of the cross and pray that soiled jeans might deter this dude. For those who are not Roman Catholics, begin running and hope your friend is slower than you are. Photo by Dave Irey

Gifts

August 26, 2016

Earlier this week a very young man wrote a morsel on Wonder. How interesting to then receive this picture from the terrific photographer/tennis player Dave Irey today. It made me wonder how long he had this gift before deciding to share it with the world. What gift do you have inside that the world longs […]

Foolishness

August 25, 2016

A very young man once believed a foolish idea. He thought that, if he was attacked by a mountain lion while fishing, he could summon the strength via adrenaline to give the lion an uppercut to the jaw….that the force of the punch would disable the poor predator. This was before the youngster saw a […]

Pride

August 25, 2016

The Cherry Crest Seafood restaurant on S.University Blvd. in Denver has developed an excellent reputation and a loyal following. Today, Jamie took son Chad there for lunch as he loves seafood. There was an overflow crowd and they put their name on the wait list. Soon their name was called. Chad noticed an elderly woman […]

Until you have a son of your own… you will never know the joy, the love beyond feeling that resonates in the heart of a father as he looks upon his son. Kent Nerburn

Wonder

August 25, 2016

It occurred to me this morning that it’s rather lame to say ‘have a great day,’ to someone. Invariably, the words go in one ear and out the other. They’ve been said so frequently that they no longer resonate. You could say ‘have a wonderful day,’ but still the phrase has no staying power. My […]

Forever

August 24, 2016

Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. I am the thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glint in the snow. I am the sunlight on the ripened grain. I am the autumn’s gentle rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the […]

Better days

August 23, 2016

Behind each cloud is the light. You may be tempted to curse the storm in the belief that it is cruel or unfair. Perhaps it is really a blessing in disguise…a gift to help you keep searching for and clinging to hope that better days are coming soon.

The flame

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. Albert Schweitzer

Vision

August 22, 2016

I’m most proud of the blessings that God has bestowed upon me, in my life. He’s given me the vision to truly see that you can fall down, but you can still get back up. Hopefully I’ll learn from my mistakes and have the opportunity to strengthen and improve the next thing I do. Martin […]
