…And Everyone else's
In one of those moods today, thinking about unexpected insights I've gotten over the years from just about everyone I've known, when I realized there’s a theme, and it’s called missing DD.
I also woke up in a generous mood, or, as it is often referred to- a mood to share. I’d bet you have plenty such insights gleaned not from the famous wise-folks, but from your family, friends, neighbors, and a passer-by.
“A woman is like a teabag. You never know her strength until she’s in hot water.”
A neighbor, after hearing about my experience giving birth to the above DD
“Luck comes when you are prepared to receive it.”
DD’s music teacher
“The saddest thing about a person dying in the middle of talking is that you never hear what they were going to say.”
DD, in one of her out-of-the blue utterings, when she was three years old
Can you tell I miss her? DD who's now all of seventeen, and probably having the time of her life at Juilliard, is never far from my heart. I was blessed to have DS before her, and fortunate to have him go to school not too far away. But the wise folks know that each of those we love is unique and irreplaceable.
