I Like Purple Rubber Duckies

I like purple rubber duckies ...really I do. I like the regular yellow ones too but purple is my favorite. After some very long weeks that I thought were never going to end, I finally got to take a Bubble Bath this weekend! ....I know I know isn't that exciting!!!! Whilst I was all alone in the house...I began some sort of silent in my head only monologue. And it went something like this...
Hmmm? Kids  are gone! Hubby is gone!!! Ummm? So what do I do first??? Yes yes...chores! So I vacuumed and did dishes, and some laundry...and I surely did read my bible some too. After all that, I was getting bit sleepy and a bit BORED!!...I know I know... I'll take me a bubble bath, I said to myself; because no one was here to announce it to. So me and myself and I went to take a bubble bath and it went sorta like this....
I wonder if there is enough hot water after having done the laundry and dishes? What shall I use to make the bubbles??? Yes Yes the hubby's shampoo will work! Do do de do!!! Look at those bubbles. This is going to be awesome. No one is is sooooo nice! Hope they're ok. that be real cute me here in the bath and they could have driven off the road and be lying in the ditch needing help and here I am taking a bath. Oh Lord forgive me...but that bath be looking some kind of fine!!!... In I go!!!! OUCH what the....? Goodness...really? Goodness night there's another one!!! OUCH!!! Come on seriously! Aaaagh!!! No really ...(insert really long sigh)!!!  Now... ok that's better.You know I really like these here purple rubber duckies...but as for those little matchbox cars, those suckers HURT!!!! You just may be a mother of a boy if ... you  are taking a bubble bath with CARS!!!...Oh oh and a matchbox airplane too!!! BONUS...NOT!!
That's went it hit me....I am so LUCKY to be a Mommy but especially lucky to have both a son, and two daughters. But for sure BOYS are different. They just are....never ever has one of the girls peed on my clean laundry. Never has a one of my girls even tried to pee on the family dog. The girls never tried flushing...anything other than...WAY too much toilet paper. Jasper...well now...HE keeps me busy!!! Boys are just DIFFERENT. And I am soooo BLESSED! And I might add....I think I love him!!!
So the point is.....Love the little and all. One day soon...I will not little kids in the house. And yes...this is where I started to cry. I am not sure I like it that my fella is finally potty trained! Ok so well sorta trained. I may have to buy some dog pads or something!! No I would not really do that! Well....I might!!! ya loves...and be THANKFUL...

What would it be?

What would it be like? What would the world be like with no love? While driving in the rain this evening I began to wonder just how horrible things would be with NO love. As I gazed on endless examples of love in a world that some say is going to hell in a hand basket to begin with, I really WHAT would IT be like?
Would cave men have ever bothered with a fire? Would a mother even think to lean over a pick up her new born child? Or perhaps she'd just leave it laying there, too bothered by the thought of carrying and caring for another one of "those"!  Wait what would caring even look like? Ummm... there would be NONE! Without love nothing would have ever evolved. And I really don't care where you think we came from or what you think we came from. Just think on it for while. Think NONE zero no no no LOVE. No momma daddy seahorse. No lion with any sense of Pride. Funny or not think on this...if and I so say if...if we came from some blob of an organism...well what if "it" never loved it on dry land!
I looked out in a murky parking lot and surely I could see hate and disgust. But there was so much love. What if that elderly women never cared to tenderly hold her husbands' hand? Would a father ever shield his child from the rain? Would a grandma run screaming at her grandchild that bolted free in a busy parking lot? Would we even look at each other? Would we even really exist? Don't even get me started on the crime or pollution rates. I did not even want to go there. But if you do...think about it long and hard. What if there was no LOVE.
There would certainly be no weddings regardless of your orientation! No college education. No vacations or even staycations. No healthcare. Zip help of any kind!  Then the tears began to roll and I thought oh my what one ever loved. No one ever spoke truth because with out love there is no truth. No truth...led me to ... NO Father!! Which led me back to what if he never loved me. Then there would be NO SON. And that is where I stopped because...well because that was just too scary for me!! No really it was it gave me the weebie geebies!!! No love......Hmmm? What would it be like?
