supermen do not wear capes…

I’ve said & written this before, but i’m just going to keep repeating myself…in hope that it may change, at least one person’s view of their world.

It is said that we are to live in the present. live in the moment. it is hard for adults to do this. children live this way. which is why your child looks at you, as though your crazy, when you’ve said, “WE are Late, Hurry Up & Put Your Shoes on NOW!” child are unaware of the future. children live by no clock…they are ruled only by their hunger & tiredness. child see no color in anyone they meet. children do not see the poor, the rich…they meet & they play. it is only when we’ve grown up that the world is ruled by the clock. and we just others around us. adults can be so mean.

i do prefer the company of children & animals over adults. which is a good thing because i teach art to children. they teach me to live in the present.

the broken tree limb has been hanging by threads over the dinning room & our broken back deck for a few years. when i put the dogs outside, two days ago, i saw that the limb had ripped further apart & was now resting on my roof, like a threat…

impeding doom.

i hired two supermen to help me.

when these men came to take the ‘limb of doom’ down, they brought only colorful ropes & one chainsaw. i took photographs while they worked because i was totally living in the present. these men were the most important people in my life during this time, they managed to bring down the limb w/o breaking anything.

everyone has a purpose. everyone that you meet, has something they can teach you…no matter their race, religion, political beliefs, rich, poor, young, or old. the person who is behind the counter has a life too. they struggle, they sometimes win, just like you.  These men came into my life like salvation. which they were. because had they not cut the limb of doom down…it would have fallen, taking with it, the dinning room roof, the french doors, some siding, broken windows, the fireplace in the living room & destroyed the crappy deck & i would have lost the house. insurance won’t pay for a broken limb they’ve seen and advised you to get it down…

anyway, these men who saved my home, my children’s home were, without a doubt, my biggest fans, my best friends & they were my heroes. I will not forget their brief appearance in my life. how could i? they saved us.

ps. 3/6/16 the man on the roof? He is a facebook friend, he asked me if i remembered him yesterday. i told him,”How could i forget you?!”

    1. Thank you so much D. Wallace Peach! I couldn’t agree more, there are more superheroes than villains in our lives. I just wish the good people that help us made the news as often as the horror in our world. Thanks for the compliment! ~amy

    I just had to share this post because it offers insight on the profoundness of such a simple moment! How much joy have we, crazy adults, missed out on by missing these simple moments that overflow in love and joy. And we dare to forget that moments make memories that will linger a lifetime, offering smiles when remembered during rainy days. Please enjoy….
