An Exercise in Chivalry

In Things My Father Used to Do, Underlying Current on April 9, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Throughout the years I’ve come to learn a great many things from my father.

Amongst those, chivalry has come easiest.

Dad was always a true gentleman; cut from the considerate cloth itself.  The feat of incorporating loving thought into action seemed as easy for him as breathing or so he portrayed throughout our everyday life. Though it was made known to me that my father was raised to conduct himself with virtue in all matters, there was something even more evident as to his motivation of generosity and selfless deed.

The reason has never been complicated.

Gabie Sings

In Funny, Gabie Babie, The girls on June 13, 2010 at 1:03 pm

She’s gonna kill me for this, but here’s a few recordings of Gabie when she was about 4 years old when we lived Farmington.  She was absolutely adorable as a child; happy, thoughtful, caring and incredibly cute..

What happened??

Anyway, she’s 14 now and will be a high school freshman this fall.  I’ll have to scan and upload some pictures of her during the time of these recordings but for now here’s my babygirl in her teenage years.

“Luh you, mija”!
