Daily Prompt – Oasis

A sanctuary is a place you can escape to, to catch your breath and remember who you are. Write about the place you go to when everything is a bit too much.

Quite frankly, I don’t get overwhelmed that often.  I don’t have a place of sanctuary.  I rarely get a chance to catch my breath.  And I surely don’t know who I am anymore.  I most certainly don’t have an oasis.

No, not THIS oasis.

No, not THIS oasis.

There is, however, a person that can drain all the troubles from my mind just with his smile.  Baby C.

My little man can turn my biggest frown upside-down.  When I’ve had an absolutely shitty day at work, or even when my wife and I were separated and I had sunken deep into an inconsolably depression, all Baby C had to do was smile, laugh, or just give me a hug and everything was better.  Kind of like when he has a boo-boo and I kiss it and make it all better for him, he does the same for my soul when I’m in the dumps.

This is how I feel when I get to see his smile or hear his laugh.

This is how I feel when I get to see his smile or hear his laugh.

He is so much fun to be around.  His laughter is contagious.  His smile precious.  His sense of humor is great.  He loves to play.  Everything is a game to him.  That is maddening sometimes, like when it’s bedtime and he decides to play catch-me-if-you-can, but most of the time it’s hilariously adorable.  He is an unfailing antidote to everything negative in my life.

Every once in a blue moon, my wife and I get a night out where alcohol consumption is involved and that is a nice temporary escape from reality and I enjoy those moments where all of life’s troubles are put on the back-burner for a night, but those times don’t compare to seeing my little man smile.  It’s not even close.  He literally lights up my life.

  2. Baby C sounds adorable. Due to the absence of children, I go to what used to be Walter Payton’s hill. It is within a short walking distance. The view is spectcular. The best time to go is 1 am.

  3. Mine is Spring Lakes in Indiana. I feel totally at ease while there. Glad you have your own human-form-oasis, despite Baby C not being a place, he’s still your oasis.

  4. We all need a Baby C in our lives! I’ve always found little kids to be be a wonderful diversion from reality…instant smiles.
