For all the old man’s show of cynicism, he possessed the sense of wonder of a small boy flying a kite.”

I like to think I have been blessed with that gift. I don't always take the gift off of the shelf and use it, but I do believe I have it. You also, John-Michael. And it seems to me you use it about as often as anyone! Good for you!

Without a moment's hesitation, my Dear SulDog Friend, I can easily assure you that your beautiful openness of Heart reveals, quite readily, your plentiful endowment with this Gift.

Loving you, Friend Jim, is so easy!
