You are a very good mother! Give your wee prince a kiss from me.

That is so beautiful! And thanks for the lovely tribute to my favorite city - I'll bet the fireworks were fantastic. :)

Wow, what an amazing, uncomfortable learning experience. Thank you for sharing, Clarice

I'm speechless. 'Tis a lovely post.

What a great story!

Oh, that story made me cry! Patrick sounds like a wonderful little guy.

That brought tears to my eyes! How sweet.

What a sweet story, a dear little boy. Roxanne was right, he's got a good mom to teach him how to live the gospel message.

Your story brought tears to my eyes. What a sweet little boy you have!

I wonder if Roxanne knows how God showed His love for her by sitting her next to the Gunthers on the cable car!? She really did receive some joy from all of you, each in your own way.

Patrick seems to have such composure for one so young.
Loved this post!

Alice - how beautiful! Happy 4th!

Thank you for sharing that beautiful story. I found myself holding my breathe while reading it.

That is a very beautiful story, Alice. I had a rather frightening encounter with a homeless man, who I was trying to be kind to. I had a baby in a stroller and he suddenly turned angry and threw a cup of ice into my baby's face. I was so grateful he didn't have a knife or acid or something. Or that he didn't attack with his hands. A lot of homeless are mentally ill and unpredictable. I don't want to diminish your story at all, it is truly beautiful but it reminded me of my very frightening encounter.

Alice WOW I needed to stop reading a few times due to the tear in my eyes.You made me feel like I was right there.

Okay! This story should have a kleenex disclaimer at the beginning! A lovely lesson. Matt. 25 came straight to my mind and I was so happy to see you saw the correlation too.

And what cool digs for the fireworks!

Oh my, what a story to satisfy the soul!

An incredibly beautiful story, Alice! What a precious boy you have. May he long remember the joy that woman felt from his act of love.

Alice I just wanted to say that I am crying! Many blessings to you and your beautiful family.

What a beautiful story. Thank you for sharing your amazing writing talents and precious family with us!

Alice, you make all of life so interesting!

Wow, does it get any better than that! Bawling my eyes out here! Blessings to you and that sweet sweet boy!

Dear Alice:

You don't know me, but I have been reading your blog for a while now. Though I have longed for and prayed for children, I have no children of my own (but many nieces and nephews). I, and my four sisters, grew up in and LOVE the City where you are spending your summer. Knowing how much you and your girls love reading, after reading your cable car adventure, I was reminded of a story you would all enjoy. It is "Nora and the Cable Car" by Rita Shields. (There is also another book set in San Francisco by the same author -- "Cecilia's Locket"). Both books are lovely stories.

Oh goodness, what a wonderful experience!

What a great story, Alice!! And, what a precious boy you have. Definitely need a tissue alert!

You have clearly instilled in Patrick the dignity and value of the human person! How beautiful!

What a precious, dear, sweet boy. Alice, you have such a gift with words. I am going to start keeping a box of tissues next to the computer!

Oh, Alice, I'm in tears. Yes, indeed, Patrick has a good mother ... as did you, as will your grandchildren .... :-) You are blessed and a blessing.

My youngest son (19) is right now traveling in California with a friend. Your story and beautiful pictures reminded me that there are wonderful, caring people all over our country. You eased my mind and heart that my boy will be meeting some wonderful people while in California.
