More of the Same(s)

Do you believe in coincidence? I do. But not all the time. A few weeks ago I wrote about grief and loss. Not a happy ending and not easy to understand. And then last week a 10 year old little girl asked me to read her story. And because she was so proud of it, I offered to type it up for her, make it into something she could keep and relish.
.
Then I read her story. The 10 year old in me understood perfectly. It's always good to get a happy reminder that sometimes things work out just fine.
.
Best Friends Forever
.
Chapter 1
.
Once upon a time there was two baby girls born in the same hospital, same month, same day, same year, same second. They were practicly sisters. There names are Searah and Tori. But when they were 3 years old they were separated for 14 years.
.
Chapter 2
.
They met!! When they were 16. In the mall. They were in the same area. They were so happy. They tried to spend the rest of their lives. Until one day there was a tornado. There parents died.
.
Chapter 3
.
They spent the rest of their lives together. They became sisters and they protected each other. Ever since there parents died they stood together 24-7 (24 hours. 7 days). They loved each other.
.
Chapter 4
.
Well. The girls got married to handsome men. And they both had a beautiful baby girl. Tori’s baby girl is named Isalisa and Searah’s baby girl’s name is Alison.
.
Chapter 5
.
They have fun together. They love eachother. And they lived happily ever after.

  13. Good decision typist.

    kj I love it. Little girls are the absolute cutest. That was a nice thing for you to do.

    I love the picture of you and the baby. It is fantastic and you look very happy indeed.

    Today was the hospital a type of chemo for my bones but it doesn't make me sick like other kinds.

  16. Kids are so optimistic - always believeing in the happily ever after.

  17. This 10 year old little girl is full of optimism. That's a good thing to have. What a wonderful story, and what a wonderful gesture of kindness on your part. She will absolutely beam with pride and show it around to her family and keep in under her pillow.

    LOVE your happy photo there!

  18. Oh, I love this!! And you're awesome for typing it up -- I still remember how much it meant to me when my mom printed out and framed my first poem when I was little. You're planting beautiful seeds, my friend.

    ReplyDelete
  19. So sweet. Yes, I believe in the end, all is well. xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  20. kj I don't even recall that. It must be an inside thing.

    Anyway, I understand.

    I am just thinking of your wonderful job and your wonderful friends and your wonderful, wonderful grandsons (notice two wonderfuls).

    Seems like quite a wonderful life.

    Love Renee xoxo

  21. a really lovely story...
    very kind of you to type it... she is surely very proud now...

    what triggers my mind is that these two girls could live together when the parents died... it can be interpreted as the absence of conventions...


    thanks a lot for sharing this gem with us... it really resonates with your sames...

  22. how lovely that you acknowledged the creativity and talent this young girl has by typing the story up and sharing it with all of us too. Letting others read her words. A special person, both you and she.

  23. That is one little sweet story. and helped along by a wonderful sweet lady, bless her

  24. Slide on over KJ...I announced your book I received today woot woot

  25. renee, it's probably just that your head is filled with so much love there isn't room for anything else. and that is GOOD! xoxo

    cs, yes, the work of childhood: to believe in magic

    taco bella (i do love this!), she beamed when i gave you a few copies--on cardstock--and she asked her mother to buy a frame. i asked her to write another story this week and maybe we'll end up with a strength she can use to feel better about her chubby self.
    xoxo

    melissa, i love planting seeds! that is what i want to do all spring and summer! xoxo

    hello annie, i'm just showing up and letting the universe take it from there...

    ReplyDelete
  26. renee, i am a very fortunate woman. i know that. and yet my heart hurts sometimes. i'm trying to just let that be okay....

    hb, that's what i thought too--women living together.... the book about sames is called 'snowflower and the secret fan'. it is a wonderful book. i would send it to you if you want me to. xoxo

    suki, what i like most is that neither this little girl nor i are especially special. we are just two good souls chugging along...
    xo

    ahh, mim, i think our time is coming....xo

    sonia, squeal! i am so happy you are happy! let me know.... x0

  27. This is such a sweet story and a lovely thing for you to have done kj. I love the simplistic way kids view the world...we complicate it so much when we 'grow up'.

    I love your garden by the way! Foxgloves are one of my favourites. xx
