Bridging the Gap

25th January 2020 –  Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge ‘The Bridge

“The wise man bridges the gap by laying out the path by means of which he can get from where he is to where he wants to go.”  –  J. P. Morgan

Over on GC and my site Weekly Prompts the Weekend  Challenge is The Bridge. The idea for this challenge came to me in early December when watching the games that the five youngest grandchildren were playing. 

All five little ones

Who knew we had crocodiles and alligators in England, and at my house too!  “Don’t put your feet down!”  squealed a child. “We can make a bridge!” shouted another. Speaking to the youngest ones, I asked “Do you know what a bridge is?”

Obviously, the five-year-olds knew, but I was unsure what the two below would say

And now we all know!

    Sue, this is the sweetest post ever! The smiles on the faces of these little ones would brighten up anyone’s day. I LOVE their answers to your question. Kids…they just get right to the heart of it, don’t they?

    And the adorable “baby”…..she’s just fearless. She’s the only one without socks because she knew she was “jumping in’ and didn’t want to get them wet!! Lol.

    1. Oh, she’s definitely a bright spark.
      They all play so well together too, though it does get very noisy at times. Thank you, Ginger. 🙂


  3. HA! So sweet and cute! Love that the baby is unconcerned! 😉 😀
    Good thing you have these smart kiddos to protect you from alligators and crocs! 😉
    HUGS!!! 😛
    Bridges are wonderful! All kinds of bridges, but especially those emotional bridges that bring people together…too many walls in our world, not enough bridges. 🙂
