Ever After



Musical Chairs

This email that I received today made my heart sing:

Hi Lori,

I just had to let you know how much [my husband] and I appreciated Ariana’s act of kindness at activity days yesterday!!

So when [my daughter] showed up for her 1st activity in the 10-11 yr old group yesterday, there were 4 cushion chairs that the other girls were sitting on.  So [my daughter] sat on a hard one, and of course, felt left out (she didn’t say anything though).  Ariana got up and switched with [my daughter].  It really meant a lot to [my daughter] as she was beyond nervous to be there in the first place. Thank you thank you!!!  It just brings tears to my eyes.

Thanks again,
[A Grateful Mom]

Ariana, sometimes you wonder aloud why you have to go through tough times. I hope you recognize that these challenges are shaping your character and helping you evolve into a beautiful, empathetic individual who strives to make sure others don’t feel as lonely, left out, and friendless as you do sometimes.

Good job, my sweet girl.

    Your children are beautiful, you are beautiful and when we are both empty nesters we can live next door to each other and actually finish some of the hundreds of craft projects that we have amassed over the years and brag about our children and grand children 🙂
