A Bright Future
This is my new favourite shirt. It says it all.
Today also is a day of hope because it is Lucy's 10th birthday. Lucy truly embodies her name - the light. She has a kindness towards others that is innate and natural (except occasionally for her brother: she is kind but not a saint!). Her very first word was "thanks". Now I could be lying about that except that I had a witness who was just as amazed as I was. When she was about two years old, Lucy told me about what it was like to be born. She said, with all the conviction and clarity of a two year old who can't invent this kind of stuff, "I went down, down toward the light." Lucy is an excellent knitter and spinner and the drawings and stories seem to just flow out of her. I am very happy to know this ray of light who brightens up everything she touches. Happy Birthday Lucy!
