thank you so much, hilary. i'm so glad you and so many others enjoyed my little piece so much. i was feeling a bit unsure of it when i posted it so it's very gratifying to know it spoke to folks.

my work hours have been a bit much this week and i have sick kids so i am slow in getting around but i will make the rounds once things settle down a bit. just didn't want anyone to think i was ungrateful. thanks again!

What a wonderfully diverse group of posts you found this week, from adorable kittens, to inspiring tales of childhood bravery, to hilarious garage sale finds.

How in the world does anyone ever think we living in a boring, or predictable world?

Thanks for finding the wondrous everyday magic, yet again, Hilary.

I'm still crying from the last one, by the way.
