JD was a doggy today – M’s doggy. She led him all over the house, his tongue hanging out, an imaginary tail, almost real, wagging behind him. His imagination brings so many smiles to our house. Silly, extraordinary, all his own comedy. Most of the time his sole purpose is to delight himself, laughing out loud, head thrown back. He just loves life. Always an optimist. I suppose God places at least one in every family, to remind us what is good, to remind us to focus on the beautiful and simple things of life, like children’s laughter. He makes me smile almost every day, and I’m so grateful for my son the comedian.
