Two Cute Little Angels In My Life

My two favorite quotes from the movie "Dan in Real Life" are:
1) "
Plan to be surprised."
2) "
Love isn't a feeling, it's an ability."

These two quotes make me think of my niece and nephew,
Kaylie and Jayden Pont.
My sister and brother in-law
did not plan on having either of these
adorable kids when they did, but that is the
beauty of life.

That picture of what we think our future will look like often
doesn't turn out exactly like that.

It's usually better

Jayden and Kaylie always greet me with a huge hug, and instanly update me on their day.
They always tell me the happy things, nothing ever seems sad or wrong in their life.
They are full of smiles and laughter.
And the best thing is their incredible amount of love,
which me leads me to quote #2 up there.

Jayden and Kaylie's ability to love is powerful and contagious.

No matter who the person is or what that person's mood and attitude is,
Jayden and Kaylie will love them, and be their friend.

When they get their feelings hurt, they will be sad or upset at first,
but sooner than any adult is capable of doing, they forgive and they choose
to be happy instead.

So, I think we could try and learn from their examples:
  • Greet those you love with a hug.
  • Talk about the happy things in life.
  • Fill your day with smiles and laughter.
  • Let your love be powerful and contagious.
  • Love those around you and be their friend.

  • When you are hurt, choose to forgive and be happy.

Thank you Jayden and Kaylie for your examples to me.
Here are some fun pictures of these two heroes of mine.
