Its not enough that Isabela is wearing her new flannel nightie lovingly made by her Nani as she mends this little bear in the studio today. Sweet yes, but that wasn't enough.
She also has the most precious little curls in her hair still lingering from her big sister Juliana taking the time to give them to her in the "beauty shop". Sweeter still? The bear is Eleni's and Isabela is wiggling in her seat waiting to surprise her with his mended arm.
But what really has me feeling a flutter around my heart? She wanted to do this not just for Eleni, but also for me. "Because you have so much work Mommy." And cheerfully she said it.
A warning to you: kindness appears to be contagious.
A good year so far. xoxo, Anna
