These are The Days

I was cleaning the downstairs bathroom just now, and discovered as I did so that I had to clean the toothpaste tube. This is not a task that I need to perform in our bathroom, upstairs, because we don’t mess with our toothpaste tube. But the boys do, apparently. It was smeared with blue, sweet-smelling toothpaste (bubble-gum?) both on the tube and on the attached cap. My wash-rag became quite blue with it all before I was finished.

But I rinsed it, and dried it, and put it in the cup with the boys’ toothbrushes. Everett’s toothbrush handle is shaped like a race car; William’s is Sponge Bob and Patrick. The toothpaste sports drawings of Superman, Batman, and the Flash. It says, “Justice League.”

As I came out of the bathroom, I commented to Bill that we are fortunate, really, to have people in the house who appreciate Batman toothpaste. And he and I agreed, as we do from time to time, that these days we are in, with boys 8 and 6, and a little girl, 4, are Good Days. They may very well, in fact, be The Days.

  1. These are days you’ll remember.Never before and never since, I promise, will the whole world be warm as this.And as you feel it, you’ll know it’s true that you are blessed and lucky.It’s true that you are touched by something that will grow and bloom in you.These are days you’ll remember.When may is rushing over you with desire to be part of the miracles you see in every hour.You’ll know it’s true that you are blessed and lucky.It’s true that you are touched by something that will grow and bloom in you.These are days.These are the days you might fill with laughter until you break.These days you might feel a shaft of light make it’s way across your face.And when you do you’ll know how it was meant to be.See the signs and know their meaning.It’s true, you’ll know how it was meant to be.Hear the signs and know they’re speaking to you, to you.buck/merchant
