When my future children misbehave

Child 1:
Please, don't ground us!
Me:
Stop groveling as if this is the worst day of your life. This is a good day. I'm going to give you all the opportunity to rehabilitate yourselves, and become productive members of this family.
Right now, you're lost. But pledge your loyalty to me, and I'll give you a new purpose in your lives. Of course if you don't want to cooperate you can stay right here. Hopefully someone saves you before Mom finds this mess. But I wouldn't count on it.
Child 1:
No, we'll play nice! Don't leave us here!
Child 2:
We pledge our loyalty to you, Great Dad.

I love this! I love Korra! I might actually say this to my kids...

Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made, or by dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.

"When I first met her, she was dating another guy. He didn’t like me talking to her, so he waited for me outside of class one day and beat me up. But I didn’t give up on her. I started biking and swimming and learning to box. I got skinnier than you are. Then the next time I saw him, he came over to me and said: ‘You want another round?’ And I said: ‘This will be the last round!’ Then I knocked him out in two punches."
(Mexico City, Mexico)

I love this! Perseverance at its finest. My new slogan for the year “This will be the last round!”

One more from my weekend trip to see my best gal pal. This trip was the best. We didn’t really go anywhere, no big adventures, nothing planned. But there was laughing, lots of laughing, venting, admiring, sharing heartbreak and hope, relating to one another like only two women who’s bond is implacable can. No time, no distance, no nothin can draw us apart. This is love.

Sometimes a little piece of shallow hope brings so much joy to your day. Boy it’s been a day. Whoever said the little things don’t matter, never had the opportunity to be denied the pleasure of seeing their name on mass produced personalized items i.e. keychains at Disneyland, those mini personalized license plates they sell at swap meets, etc.
