i know that we are only supposed to post one photo for love thursday but …whatever. i have been lucky in love, more than once. i have so much love for so many people it sometimes astounds me. yesterday, my three year old grandson had his first hair cut. it was something!! my son and his wife are traditional jews and as is the custom his hair was not cut until his third birthday.
this is the before photo. this is david, named after my late husband, his grandfather, who he never met. David is a skateboarder just like his own dad. he is gentle, sweet, athletic and i cannot believe how much i love him. it kills me. i can't stop looking at him. he rocks me. there was a party and all the little children had a turn cutting a piece of his hair in return for a candy. yup, you read that right.
and here is how he looks today and even with the short little haircut i know it won't be long before he throws on his helmet, hits the skate park with his dad and does what he LOVES best, a kick flip, riding a rail, skating the bowl, trying not to bail.
cause that is love, loving the same thing your dad loves and being together.
