I know this is true. These days, these moments right now, are the most precious I’ll ever have.
… An overheard conversation between Kitty and Teddy in the bath :
Teddy : When Dad’s dad died, did Dad’s heart break?
Kitty : Yes.
Teddy : Has Dad’s heart mended?
Kitty : It didn’t actually break break, Teddy. That’s just an expression to say that Dad was really sad.
Teddy : But did his heart go in two?
Kitty : No. Not actually in two… but it did crack down the middle.
Teddy : But has the crack mended?
Kitty : Yes, Teddy, we filled it up when we came.
… Kitty declares she has two favorite things… reading and Moose.
… My book, The Book Thief. Hauntingly powerful! And a reminder that we can make even hard times beautiful.
… The challenges that bring us closer, make us stronger and help us to change the things we know are not good for us, no matter how painful changing is. Together, we can do it, whatever it is.
… The beautiful people in our lives. A bunch of bright orange marigolds. A teachers loving smile. A garland lovingly handmade from fallen autumn leaves.
… A business that allows me to be creative and makes me happy, every day.
… A window that looks out onto a forest of treetops.
… Roses that bloom in November.
… beautiful, happy, family days.
Blessings and magic,
