My Kindhearted Girl
Ever since our dear Georgie died last year, Alexa and I have had many conversations about heaven, death and the afterlife. Alexa is pretty philosophical and asks me things like "Do people take on their human form in heaven?" "Is there gravity in heaven?" "Do people stay together as families in heaven?" etc... So when a friend of hers in school lost his grandma it was no surprise to me that she told me that they had many conversations about the death of this boy's grandmother. She relayed some to me and it sounded like she was counseling him. She wrote him this card and put it in his cubby at school. His mother actually contacted me and thanked me as it meant something to her as well and was meaningful to her son. I love the heart of my daughter. I hope as she gets older, she never loses that sensitivity towards others. I teach her to help others when they need it, be kind and think about how other's are feeling but her sense of compassion is not something that is taught by me. She is intrinsically kind and I love that about her. I hope she grows up to help one day remind the world that our pain is all the same and we need to love one another. She amazes me. : )
I am a fortysomething mom of an amazing daughter that we adopted in 2006 from Hubei China. Alexa is 10 years old and lights up our lives everyday. I am married to my best friend, have 3 crazy dogs and love my life near the beach. We are soaking up life in CA in our new home and welcome you into our piece of paradise.
