End of Summer Blues

My sister sent me this picture yesterday. Her copies finally came! 

As summer winds down and I head back to work with the lovable pygmies, I'm reminded again what is important. The pygmies will inundate me with hugs and happy greetings. I can't wait to see them and hear all about their loose teeth and t-ball games. But I'm also reminded that my aunt passed away yesterday.

She had seven children and was one of those no nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is ladies. Truth be told, I was a little bit afraid of her. But she had a heart of gold and would have done anything for me. We hadn't seen each other in years, but I remember her caring for my grandmother with such tenderness.

One of the copies of Kindar in the picture above was for her. Kisses, Aunt Elaine. We'll miss you.
