Sharing the love

I want to share this beautiful post with you all. This is a blog of someone quite dear to me, and reading this just made this long, frustrating day totally worth it.

That’s the way it is when you’re just a little person, all day is all there is. I remember reaching down to touch this beauty in front of me. My little fingers, which at the time seemed of sufficient size, were hesitant. I was unsure what to expect when I came into contact with the glowing surface. Would it be hot? Would it be sharp? Will it hurt? But it is so beautiful and inviting!?! How could something so pretty hurt? I had to take the chance,..." Please, please go and read the rest here.
