Yesterday, she appeared in the doorway beaming a smile that could literally have reached ear to perfect little ear.
"Wow! You look happy!" I said.
"Ye-ya-yah" she said in that adorable I-add-a-third-syllable-to-every-word kind of four year old way. "Emma's leaves are back!!! They're baaaack!!!* You said when Emma's leaves comed back we could take a picture!! Get your camera!! Get it!! Now!!"
So I did.
And it felt so good to be fulfilling that promise made on a chilly fall day when tears fell in unison with her leaves.
Today - all sun - all smiles...and*for clarification, they did not come back overnight like a sister-angel miracle, but I waited for Ms. Comedian to notice for herself -and it was well worth it!
