The Best Things


Smooch, originally uploaded by Paul-G.

This is our youngest daughter and her fiance, at a family pre-wedding cook-out. The wedding is just four weeks away now. Both are firefighters, both are amazing kids with great hearts, great ambition, focus, and drive. These are tough economic times, but Derek and Tracy remind everyone who meets them that there is great hope for the future -- absolute reason to be optimistic.

It will be sweetly heartbreaking to walk her down the aisle -- but I know that I am helping to move her on to a life of meaning that will inspire all of us within their circle of contact. These are the best things... simple.

Wow, great kids and a really great shot! Reminds me, for some reason, of something taken out of a Life Magazine. Great artistic pic.
