Porte Photos’ Daily Quote: December 27, 2022

When I approach a child,
he inspires in me two sentiments;
tenderness for what he is,
and respect for what he may become.

~ Louis Pasteur
French – Scientist December 27, 1822 – September 28, 1895

Porte Ponderings:

Babies are such a joy, but they grow so fast. Elijah, my youngest grandson is already 6 months and almost 18 pounds. He laughs with his entire body and never sits still. Never again will he be the babe in swadling clothes. For just a moment they are so small.

Today is our packing day as we prepare to journey south and away from the winter weather. Our granddaughter made such a fuss about us leaving, but when return they will have all grown another 3 months. All of my sons have turned into loving, caring, hard working fathers.

Old age is coming gracefully. I tell my middle grandson that I’m going to live to be 120 (but only if I can maintain my independance). I certainly am enjoying being retired, almost as much as childhood. ❤
