As wave after wave of “bad” news washes over us each and every day it is all too easy to get jaded.  From the governor’s hare-brained remarks about education, about how some school board members meddled way too much in the “search” for a new state superintendent, to legislators listening to Washington think tanks instead of Alabama educators and on and on,.

Sometimes we begin to feel that someone took away our reasons to smile and to laugh at the wonderment of the world of children.

Which brings me to this short post from last July.

I’ve probably watched it at least a dozen times.  Each time brings a smile and chuckle.  The sand runs through our hour-glass all too quickly.  Because it does, never miss a chance to smile.

So to baby Ella, whoever and wherever you may be, may God continue to bless you and yours as you have blessed us.
