Recently I picked up our twelve-years old 7th grade grandson Luke from school. Something I often do.
We hadn't gone far when he shared with me something he was doing and something he wasn't doing. After he shared such I said to him, "Well, Luke that makes me happy, proud of what you are doing and what you are not doing." He looked at me, smiled a bit and said: "Well, Pop Pop that's pretty obvious what one should and should not be doing in what I just told you." "Luke, you are right but you know maybe we all ought to acknowledge, celebrate the obvious more in our world today."
Personally as I see things happening today I am not so sure that the "obvious" is not as "obvious" for some as it is for others. Today I am seeing things happen in my life and lifetime that I thought would never happen. Also, I am not seeing things that I thought would happen. So the obvious....boy that's another matter.
