My young son threw a ball  at me
 
But sadly, he caught me unaware
 
And it bounced right in front of me
 
Oh! I melted at his wounded stare!
 
Perhaps more focused I should be
 
To show him that I really care
 
For life’s too short truthfully
 
To waste blessings our loved ones share!
 
Be mindful so my eyes shall always see
 
My fervent hopes and daily pray’r!

This is what soccer, swimming, baseball , football, gymnastics are made for. Why there is Soccer Moms and Dad tag - alongs with cameras and video cams on hand. What pizzas’s are all about. Indeed life can’t cover them all but your presence makes a lot of difference and gain an added score from your wife! Like.

Thanks for the like Brod.

A lot of times we go through life unmindful of our actions. We hurt others unwittingly in the process. The situation is much worse when we hurt those that we love.

I hope that was the message I was able to express.

@Francis: And you did. And I drew a parallel being mindful of our loved ones and
their interests - what they do - their actions as you said that sometimes catch us by surprise
and causes a sad response from them like your poem said.
