Making rainbows


My nest is a little bit emptier tonight.


Big girl has taken her loveliness back to school.



So tonight I'm thinking of all the things I love about her. Her warm heart, her loving nature. The way she makes me laugh and laugh, the way she she brings out the fun in me.



I love her sense of style, her individuality. I love that we can chat and chat forever and still have something to say. I love her clever mind and her funny obsessions. I love it when she wears her red coat, I love her beautiful brown eyes. I love her plans and dreams and that she shares some of them with me.


I love her sense of colour, I love how she taught herself to crochet in five minutes and made woollen rainbows all through the holidays.


I love the way she cares about family, about feelings. The way she loves her sisters and brother,
how she is the best biggest sister they could have. Even if she does burst the odd balloon.

Of course there are so many more things I love about my big girl, enough for a whole lifetime and beyond. And yes, I'm missing her tonight but my mind and heart are so full & sleepy & happy that it feels like she hasn't gone away at all. Are you thinking about someone you love tonight? I'm off to bed now, sleep tight xo
