Every day I am pleased to hear from my readers for a variety of reasons. Once in a while I can’t help but share what someone has shared with me, because I think it might inspire someone else. Here is a recent email from a mom in Texas.
I wanted to say thank you for your recent blog post about “strengthening the relationship”. My daughter, Ella, has a project due in school tomorrow that required her to create a flag with a symbol that represented herself. We talked about your blog post and she decided that the symbol you showed on your blog also represented her perfectly! Her explanation is that the pink circle represents herself and the colored circle represents everything that she may encounter throughout her life from now until eternity. She loves the fact that the colored jewels represent little “facets” that she has or will encounter in her life now and in the future. Your post made the difference in just completing a project and actually enjoying the project. She has proudly displayed her flag today in our neighborhood and is really looking forward to school tomorrow to explain her symbol. I’m hoping that Ella can inspire her fellow classmates to really cherish the moments that are their lives as we have been so wonderfully reminded to do the same, through you!
Ella is 8 years old and in the 3rd grade. And incredibly darling, wouldn’t you say?
