Children are Like Kites

Thanks for all you share
especially your hearts and love♥

Soon you two will be reunited..............
As Alice Said
Don't be late for a very important date♥

Children are Like Kites:

You spend years trying to get them off the ground.

You run with them until you are both breathless.
They crash ... they hit the roof ...
you patch, comfort and assure them that someday they will fly.

Finally, they are airborne.

They need more string, and you keep letting it out.

They tug, and with each twist of the twine,
there is sadness that goes with joy.

The kite becomes more distant,
and you know it won't be long
before that beautiful creature will snap
the lifeline that binds you together
and will soar as meant to soar
... free and alone.

Only then do you know that you have done your job.

Suddenly I found you and the spirit in me sings, don't have to look no further, you're the soul in many things.
~Bob Dylan

Thanks Nia for the lovley CD that arrived today and for always putting a song in my heart.............

I have Spring Fever♥
