I think this is beautiful, and not just because she’s my best friend.

As time goes on, I am realizing more and more how important and unrepeatable these moments are with the children. I have been trying to say “yes” when they let me know they want my company. “Yes” when Patrick requests to sit on my lap while he watches a Kipper video, “yes” when Theresa asks to read me three chapters in a row of “Howliday Inn,” “yes” when Agnes slips downstairs to have a chat past bedtime, and “yes” when Margaret needs me to choose the colors for her latest artistic masterpiece. Nothing could be more important or worthy of my time.

It is an honor to be on the A-list of such great people.
