Odds Are

Odds Are
Love, Papa.

Just because you are heading that direction does not mean that is where you are going!
Sometimes where you have just come from is where you will end up.
When we arrive at our destination we don’t always recognize it.
It may be clouded or disguised and we may pass by without noticing.
Or we suspect that we are continuing on because our focus is on the journey rather than any particular destination.
Pause for just a moment and look at where you are.
Is this where you intended to be?
Are you where you expected?
What if this was a stopping point?
Would that be ok?
What if you turned around and went back to where you came from?
If you reversed your steps would things look different?
Our pathways are winding, don’t discount reversing your direction to go have another look!
Odds are you have already been to where you are going!
Love, Papa.

Every Day

Every Day
Love, Papa.

In that moment
When everything was on the line
And you gave it your all.
Nothing was left to give
No yesterday
No tomorrow
Just now!
Yeah...that moment!
That’s how I want to live
Today and
Every day.
Love, Papa.

Please share Papa with those you love.

Love, Papa.

Air you breathe,
Sunshine on your face,
Fresh smell of spring,
Sounds of a bird,
Vista before you.
Much is offered every day.
Only you may choose
What brings you solace.
Love, Papa.

Please share Papa with those you love.

The Box

The Box
Love, Papa.

Attempts to get “Jack” stuffed back into the box
Are often met with great resistance.
As most would see expansion as the greater challenge
And no reason to contain themselves within such confines.
But if you’ve never seen the inside of the box,
Perhaps that...
Could be the adventure?
Love, Papa.

Please share Papa with those you love.

Show the Way

Show the Way.
Love, Papa.

Each to their own,
Yet more for some
Is the perception
Shown each day.
But in the great larder of life
Abundance never lacks
To those who ask the way.
Seek not your share above all else
But only that all shall receive.
For what you desire is inches from grasp
When you’re grateful every day.
Measure your worth not by the tally sheet,
Rather the times you felt the joy.
For a life well lived
Needs no regret
Indeed it shows the way.
Love, Papa.

Please share Papa with those you love.
