Put Me In
  I love to sit and stare at a beautiful painting.  Not the modern kind.  But rather the realistic style,  The painting that makes sense to me. The kind I can put myself into.
  I love a beautiful rendition of a farm field with a gorgeous crop of corn and the sun shining down, while in the distance there's a little boy bobber fishing in a pond all by himself. Put me in that picture.
  Or maybe a fall setting, overcast skies with kids jumping into a pile of leaves while dad is sipping on a hot cup of coffee watching and leaning on his rake, looking totally content. Put me in that picture.
  And then there's the winter picture in a little town with snow falling, kids sledding, people shopping and dogs prancing -  all with that feel of total innocence.  Put me in that picture.
  Of course, lets not forget the summer picture at a cabin in the north woods overlooking the lake, watching the beautiful sunset, sitting by a campfire roasting marshmallows while dad is showing his grandkids how to skip rocks across the water. Oh yes, definitely put me in that picture.
  Whatever you do, don't get so caught up in the stresses of life that you pass up on the opportunity to say, "put me in."
  Search until you find that picture.
That special picture.
