    There are moments some days as I watch my teenage daughter delight in life, when I briefly mourn those lost years. But they made me what I am and I’m strong and happy so I try not dwell on my loss.

    Oh, you know it! “preach it,” Colleen! πŸ˜€ Play is what children should do, as soon as homework is over or Saturday begins! πŸ˜‰

  8. Wow. So simple and profoundly sad.

  9. It is a foundation and a resource and a source of pleasure and pain. It does matter.
