Cake Watcher

The baby of the family, the cake-watcher, Laurel Mae is three today.  Interestingly, I spent yesterday afternoon with one of my midwives, having a Maya Arvigo abdominal massage.  We were talking about her name, how sweet it is, and I said it might be the only sweet thing about her right now (oh, three!).  She's a strong girl with a lot of perseverance, and it's not likely anyone will walk all over her.  She's also very loving--I still remember the baby who would pat me when I picked her up.  She loves to care for others and help when one of us needs it.  Someone asked me at the store if she was always shy. "No," I said. "She'll wrestle a bear all the rest of the time."  And then she'd get out her doctor kit and bandage him up.  And truly, that is her.

Aw, I remember that worried-looking baby! Sweet Laurel; we love her over here. I hope she has a wonderful birthday.

Thank you! She did! I can see now that the worried look was rather telling. . .

Laurel and Morwenna are cut from the same cloth, for sure! So much passion for life, such strong resolve to see whatever they are doing through to the end.

Thank you! I'll have to do an update about it. It occurred to me that I had never mentioned it.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
