“I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.”
~ Neil Gaiman
Marie Dale’s youngest grand-daughter, Skyla, made a rare appearance in the office. The last time I saw Skyla she was a tiny four or five years old. Now she’s a tiny seven or eight years old. The point is, she’s tiny, but oh how she’s mighty in character. Marie’s face lights up when that little girl is around. It’s mutual, too. They put me in mind of me and Mamaw. Every great woman I know had a strong grandmother like Marie to help her grow. I predict Skyla will go on to great things.
