Tonight while I was cleaning up in the kitchen after supper, Arrine was on her fluffy white rug in her play area. She was playing with her Disney Fisher Price Princess Castle. And in her sweet little voice she was talking for the characters and making up different story lines.

I said to her, “Arrine, I love the sound of you playing.” And I stopped. Paused. And remembered hearing those exact words said to me by my mom, so many times. When I was little I thought it was kinda weird and never really understood my mom.

Now I do.
