Easter Eggs

On your mark. Get set. Go.

There eyes wide with wonder, six fearless adventurers took off around the house. The obvious treasures were gobbled up quickly as the real search began for the elusive few remaining eggs.

On the window sill, only slightly above their wandering eyes sits a bright blue. From the crook of the tree peaks a marvelous yellow.

Cole stands over the lid to the well house, ready to drop the eight feet down into the gloomy shadows in search of booty. Others walk ever shrinking circles of desperation. Right here, a finger points, smiles return as they run in glee to capture yet another.

We are all searching for something, yet sometimes we make it harder than it really is. Our eyes easily skip over what is right before them, thinking it can not be that easy. Sometimes it takes another to point it out for the scales to fall from our eyes. Or seeing what is just out of reach, we declare it is too much and sit with basket in hand.

I feel that way at times. More recently as I am job hunting. I have been blessed with an amazing part time job, but it still keeps me from my family more than I would like. Still chasing my Easter Egg.

What is it that you are searching for?

I have no idea what I'm searching for but I'll know it when I find it!

My Health, to be well again. To be able to do the things that were once so easy to do. You do not think about losing it until it is gone. So a cure for arthritis would be nice. My lungs have been breathing better.

And I hope you know that I am praying for you in your job search. But at least now if you have a part time job than maybe this will lead to the full time job. And I pray for the quandry that you are in about being there with the boys. I truly believe in quality time, some parents can be with their kids all day but they are not really WITH their kids. That spending the actual time doing something with them is what is important, listening to them, talking to them, helping them. This is better than just staying in a house with them in their bedrooms, or playing on video games or watching TV. I know you will be WITH your kids.

God bless.

Still searching for my car keys! No..found those! A cure for diabetes would be nice, And it's good that you can actually spend real time with your kids. It makes us both a little sad( the Princess and I ) when she has to go home, at the end of the day; when Mum comes to pick her up. Even tho' I'm more a big brother, than father type, I can somewhat relate to it.

Not sure exactly what I am looking for or what I need. However, I think that I want/need/desire/long for a relationship again. Being alone stinks, stanks, stunks. Being young and single, I could never image actually being with some. Then getting married, I could never image being alone again. Then finding myself unexpectedly single, you get the picture.

I don't think I know exactly what I'm searching for, but I'm sure I'll still find it. Probably when I least expect it!
