Thank you notes

A grandmotherly woman walked by our house a few weeks ago, slowing down as she looked over at our yard. I was heading out on a walk with Isaac, and kind of cringing inside as I wondered what had caught her attention -- the plates and cups from a forgotten picnic snack, the remnants of paper airplanes, the scooters, bikes & rollerblades scattered across the lawn...

Then she said something like this, "I just love seeing that dirt under your swings! You know that grass will grow back someday, but your children will just keep growing! "

Thank you sweet woman for taking a minute on your morning walk to look closely and see the beauty in those little patches of dirt, and for telling me about it too!
