A card to myself

Amelia's card to herself

Last night at bedtime, my daughter was having trouble falling asleep, so she asked if she could draw in bed until she was tired. I said OK, and after a while, I peeked in to see what she was doing. “I’m making a card to myself,” she said. From the doorway, I could see hearts and pictures of herself smiling under a sunny sky. And I was struck, once again, by the wisdom of children.
