I tell my kids on a regular basis that people are more important than things. I tell them this, because I believe it is true. Like most true...
Three Dave's No Waiting
Thursday, November 17, 2011
This morning Puppy crawled into bed with me to snuggle. My part of the snuggling was a semi comatose dream state. She would say stuff and I would respond partially consciously. When I was almost fully awake we had this conversation:
Puppy: You are the best Daddy ever.
Me: The best? (This wasn't a question, as much as a wake up technique I have of repeating everything I hear,just in case I am dreaming. I have had conversations with Amy in the morning. Except the Amy next to me wasn't talking. I was responding to the Amy in my dreams.)
Puppy. Well, . . . God is the best. You are the second best Daddy ever.
I am not sure about the second part, but she sure nailed the first part. For such a great beginning of the day, it turned out rather lousy. Mainly, because I forgot or did not acknowledge the first part. When I forget the first part, there is no way the second part can be true.
Tomorrow is another day. A day that God will be the best Daddy ever. I'm gonna remember that and try for second!
