Now they are bro-ing away…

Stuck in the traffic jam caused by the lion sighting, the driver of the next car over helped us piece together the story play by play:

“Do you see the lion? He just crossed the road. Maybe we get to see some kill in action!”

“Wait, you hear the low wailing sound he is making? That’s a call for other lions. Perhaps he over slept and his pride left without him.”

Suddenly, out of no where another lion came running towards him.

“Look! His mate came back! Wait, that’s not a lioness, it’s another lion! Ohh…maybe that’s his brother. They must have left their pride to search for their own girls friends! Haha…”

Two brothers…bro-ing away to form their own pride… don’t know about you but I hear the theme song of Lion Kong coming on!

Hospitality Requires No Language

We couldn’t communicate with words,
But by actions I learned what words couldn’t say—
“Try this!”
“Try that.
“This is for you to remember us by.”
You showed me that hospitality grows from generosity,
A loving heart and willing hands is all that is necessary.
A wide smile connects heart to heart.
A small gift bonded you and me.

I always thought conversations form the bedrock of friendships,
A commons language is the key to know and get to know.
But now I know that I was wrong.
Hospitality requires no language,
Just an open heart to give,
A brave soul to try and
A readiness to go.

If You Don’t Get Better…

If you don’t get better you can’t go out to play
If you don’t get better the mask will be your lonely fate 
If you don’t get better our family will be in danger 
The plans we’ve made will have to change
If you don’t get better I will make you chicken soup;
I will search high and low for cough drops and medicine too
I will brew your favorite herbal tea, 
Or simply filter water if that’s what you need 
If you don’t get better we will fight together.
We will stay by your side 
We will keep awake and our eyes wide.
If you don’t get better we will not give up we will wait for you and with you and never stop.
If you don’t get better that’s okay.
