Friday 8/27/10 - "THE ROCK GARDEN" - FFF55



Playing alone in the rock garden she placed dandelions into a small bowl followed by hydrangea petals, grass, moss and water.

Using a small rock she began to mash this pretend mixture into a magic healing medicine.
She was 4.

The seeds of her healing gift that would emerge 56 years later were being nourished.

Funny how long we wait sometimes for things to come to frution. When love is involved things always do.

This struck me straight in the heart, PG. In the final line, I breathed a sigh of joy for that little girl, that person writing the remembrance, everything. You touched me big time.
