A Growing Heart
Thank you to the Two Writing Teachers Group for hosting the weekly Slice of Life each Tuesday. Click here to read more slices.
Our Summer has launched with lots of car time driving back and forth to the hospital or my parents' house as my dad was diagnosed with a host of medical problems. It's been a rough time for the whole family. The good news is he's home now recovering. During our car rides, I've had lots of conversations with Natalie and Kam. I love these conversations! They are just the right thing to cheer me up when I could easily be wading knee deep in tears as I see my parents aging before my eyes.
Yesterday's conversation revolved around a growing heart. Natalie shared (in a matter-of-fact sort of way) that she wanted to thank Kameron and me for showing her how to be sharing and caring. "You're making my heart grow big and strong!"
She got me smiling, ear-to-ear!
