Three Stories

1. When I brought Rowan to school this morning, he asked me, "Want to see a miracle?" He pointed me down the hallway, so I walked down, trying to find the miracle. Rolls of paper? No. Poster? No. Clean bathroom? No--well, maybe. I looked back at him, and he had the cutest smile on his face, sort of impish, and he pointed, saying, "Up there."

I looked up, and hanging from the ceiling all the way down the hall were green bags made of papier mache, I think. He told me, "Those are chrysalis." The school does a butterfly project in the younger grades every fall, and his grade made these miracles.

2. After I dropped my cat off at the vet this morning to get her teeth cleaned, I turned left onto Elm Creek Boulevard. As I turned, a spider dropped next to my face, hanging from its thread. Inside the car. Now understand, I want to get this shirt: that's how I feel about spiders. I finished the turn trying to kill the spider without killing me.

3. Dominic requested grilled cheese with tomato soup for dinner. I told him we didn't have tomato soup, and he said, "You can make it. Just get a tomato, drop it in a pan, then stir it. Tomato soup."

Jennifer, my heart goes out to you at this time. All will be well, one way or another. Life throws challenges at us, but we muddle through and come out the other end stronger. Lots of positive thoughts your way!!!

I thought about you today and hoped you were having a better day!! I agree, life does throw us challenges, at times, more than we think we can handle. I loved Dominic's recipe for tomato soup, did you try it!!!
