Through Grandma’s Eyes: The Sunscreen

“You cannot do a kindness too soon,

for you never know how soon it will be too late.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

journal entry:

It was only sunscreen.  But the photograph flew at me as if it had wings.  No matter that the sunscreen is a little thick.  Does anyone mind?  He looks like he knows that she is performing a kindness for him.  I remember when our kitty caught a fishing fly in her tongue.  An otherwise combative and noisy kitty let Grandpa hold her on her back like a baby while the hook was removed.  She didn’t squirm.  She didn’t cry out.  Even though she was just a kitty . . . she knew we were helping her.  Facial expressions and body language tell us that this little grandson knows he is being helped. What would I do without a telephoto lens.

“Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.”
