One small toy at a time. One Barbie outfit missing shoes. One stuffed animal loved until the fur is off. One princess costume worn until the sequins are all gone.
One accomplishment at a time. Going to 'school' for the first time. Learning to say the Pledge of "Alleebance" all on your own with just the smallest bit of coaching. One hug of your baby sister, Ava. One more stern warning to your boxer, Georgie, "NO, Georgie!"
And, a visit to the hair salon with Mommy. Where you get treated like the rock star that you are! As Laura said in her message to me, "...she just looks so grown up and pretty in this picture that I had to share." You're right Lar, she does. And I am so tickled that you thought of me and sent it!
It's hard not being close by to see these small changes and accomplishments. I'll always wish we lived closer. One day, if I keep smiling....I'm sure it will happen.
Didn't she just make your day a wee bit brighter when you saw her? I'm smiling now while I write this. I hope your smile carries you through your day.
Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly aka Great Aunt Holly
