If you’ve read my blog then you know how I feel about the bad news that television and the internet almost constantly inundate us with. Even something that would appear to be relatively harmless can easily and unfortunately succumb to a negative media spin.
Yesterday I read the following article about a problem people had regarding a picture of Ryan Reynolds with his new infant daughter James which was posted by his wife Blake Lively in recognition of Father’s Day. The picture looked so innocent even I had to see what this was all about. Here is the link in case you missed it.
Concerns about baby aside, and lets hope and feel confident (I do) that baby James does have the instinct to cry if and when she’s feeling uncomfortable. Her parents appear to possess the intelligence to appropriately react to her cry and try adjusting her position among other obvious efforts to soothe their little one if and when necessary.
What I want to point out about this article is something that may have been glanced over by those eagerly looking to find fault in our celebrities (another favorite media pastime I believe we could do without). With the Instagram photo, Blake Lively had written the following to her husband:
Since the day our baby was born, I’ve felt so strongly in my heart that you were most likely the father. #ILoveYouSoMuchItsSilly
Blake Lively to husband Ryan Reynolds on Father’s Day
What a light and happy love they have. Her comment brought a smile to my face as I’m sure it did to her husband’s. Here’s to hoping that some of us read her comment, saw the beauty of family, true love and good intentions in her post, and decided to do something as nice for one of their loved ones.
If not its never too late to do something little to put a smile on a loved ones face and a warmth in their heart…
