“I can help you…” offered one small friend to the other.
My tiny, golden-haired granddaughter, not much bigger than our little dog, could see “Hoosier” waiting by the door. It was a hot, July day at the lake. Hoosier, no doubt, wanted to go inside for a cool drink of water. The problem?
Neither one of them could reach the door handle!
Frustrated, she put her little hand on his back, to say, “don’t worry, I’m here.”
Amid all of the busyness of hosting, and playing with my grandchildren, I stopped in my tracks when I saw this twosome, at the door.
I am touched by the “tenderness” of this photo, this moment shared.
Isn’t life so much sweeter shared with a friend? A loved one? Or even a furry four-legged fellow?
After I snapped the photo, I opened the door for these two. Wondering if Hazel Ann would go off to play,
I was pleasantly surprised when she insisted on helping Hoosier with his drink! She was not negligent in
Her offer came from her heart, and she intended to see if through.
Summer, ideally, is often described as “lazy days”…
This obviously, does not refer to family vacations, swim lessons, softball and T-ball,
Bible School, and Camps of all sorts.
Let’s remember to look for our moment, to cherish our time spent with friends and loved ones,
To offer assistance, tenderness and support, when needed.
Like a little hand resting on your back,
I wish you the sweetest of warm, “lazy” Summer days!
