"Story Lady"

Friday, June 27, 2014

This has been a week - for sure -

I am grateful to have made it
I won't share the twists and turns
although we all know that alterations
clear the way for great opportunities

I will share with you a mid-week
bright spot
 Story Lady - that's me.
This is how the envelope was addressed.
This was the nanny's last day.
There were two children.
I knew them before the youngest (a boy) was born.
The two, a sister and brother attended a story time i had across town.
That story time was canceled,  
the children insisted the parents find me,
and they started showing up at another story time.
They grew up - with several different guardians
sometimes they made their parents or grandparents
bring them.
I LOVED when their dad came
he is a very special man.
he teaches kindergarten for the special school district.
He is pure magic.
Eventually they got the BEST Nanny Ever.
Then, the sister grew up and went to school.
The little brother turned in to his own, unique person.
 This week is officially out for the sister and dad for the summer.
The children are grown enough they no loner need their nanny
so, it was "our last day" together.
 Here is the graphic on the face of the card
Here is the note
from nanny & boy.

I am blessed
and
happy.

love & love,
-g-

the story lady

ps - there is already a new batch of story-attendees . . . 
life is good.

I didn't know it was going to be in French

I didn't know it was a Canadian film
I didn't realize it was going to touch my heart
and, even one day later i would still be stopping
to think about it
and say
"Wow, that was a good film."

Hope and a Future

That is the Promise
I am always surprised
there is always more
it is always better than i imagined
Happy Reminder of the Ordination
of a 
21st Century Maggid

Grateful
and
Amazed

shhh -

I ordered flowers - 
i ordered them last week
 to arrive Tuesday
like i do every year
people are surprised, because they go about their very busy lives
then suddenly they remember
 they cheered me on
and 
were there to witness
and have cake
and sign the document
and race home to beat a super rain storm
which is a GOOD SIGN
yep
tomorrow is the anniversary of
the creation
(ordination)
of a 
21st Century Maggid

shhh . . . 
soon, they'll be surprised - to remember they were present
to witness 
the actual moment

I have been trying to convince myself


it is, maybe a block and a half from my favorite library
a dear friend of mine works there creating magical mosaics
i see it often from bus windows
last week i noticed there was a statue of a hippopotamus looking at us from the roof

Still, I haven't been

There IS a "City Museum"
I would LOVE to visit



Isn't this a fabulous thought???

****************************
It's some kind of inner dilemma
NOT visiting the one
and wildly interested in the other

in fact, i have a list of crazy cool places I'd like to see

Do you have places you prefer to avoid
and a list of places you know lift the heart of humankind??

Just asking . . . 
love & love,
