I had to share this. My sister’s neighbor, Chelsea, came over to baby sit last weekend so that she and her husband could have a night out. My niece, Maeve (“Mae-mae”) is five and Kara is two. Chelsea’s mom emailed my sister the following note.
Today I was a guest speaker in Chelsea’s community service class. We were talking about the meaning of true happiness. I asked her class when they could remember a time when they were truly happy. Chelsea told a story about when she was at your house the other night. Kara was crying for you when Chelsea put her to bed. She then asked for Mae-mae. Chelsea got Maeve and brought her into Kara’s room. Maeve got in the crib with Kara. They hugged each other and Maeve said to Kara, “I have to tell you a secret”. She then said, “I will always love you”. Then Kara said, “I love you too, Mae-mae.” Kara then fell asleep in Maeve’s arms. Chelsea shared this story with her class today, because she felt truly happy watching your girls together.
I’m going to email my sister back and tell her how much I love her.
