Joseph in the Park

Joseph is 2 1/2 years old, we spend each Monday together and this is a typical scene shot with my digital camera (quality not perfect) of our time spent in the park..

He is no relation. I used to look after his mother when she was 7 years old and now I have the privilege of spending a day each week watching Joseph blossom.

Date: March 2009

Note: A little way into the video I ask Joseph what else do we like and he says "Swing Low" which is a song I have been singing to him since he was a baby.."Swing Low Sweet Chariot"....bless his little heart to remember that.

Oh, I didn't realize you also watched over his mom when she was little. How special to have them both in your life now!

I enjoyed the conversation. His little "Swing low..." was so sweet.

That was very cute. And what a nice thing you do to help out with little Joseph! That he remembers this songs as something special to him, that's a testament to what a special person you are in his life! Thanks for sharing the video!

I've wondered how you were so lucky to have that sweet little thing in your life!

Oh how sweet is that. Little Joseph is lucky to have you in his life too. Children always make things ok in the world somehow. Great he remembered the song, amazing.
