Week of 08-09 through 08-15-2016

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Yinglan. Thank you Yinglan for our photo prompt!


“Good morning dad, here’s the morning paper, Janis said as she walked over to the window and began to close it.”

“Janis!  Please do not close the window.”

“But, those kids are playing ball again and making a lot of noise.  Don’t you want peace and quiet?”

“I am unable to leave this room, or get out of this bed, however, I can enjoy the noise coming from those youngsters and watching them have fun.”

“It’s great they have a safe place to play.  They are not on the streets, or destroying anything and they are having a good time.”

They fill my mornings with joy and for that, I am so blessed.  It’s a wonderful way to start my day.”

  1. Great viewpoint. It is much better to have kids on soccer fields than causing trouble in the streets. I think the sound of them playing would be nice on a Saturday morning. It would be happy 🙂
