Fuzzy Pictures Soon A Thing Of The Past!

29 12 2005

Last night, amid the “Babysitting Crisis 2005” I got an incredible tidbit of news.

My highly intelligent, charming, pretty, adventureous, quick-learning, adaptable, works-well-with-others sister left me a message. It went a little something like this……

“Hi Shar-bear. (Only she is allowed to call me this. Anyone else tries to pull anything funny…well, you just won’t like what will happen to you.) I noticed on your blog that Santa didn’t bring you a new digital camera for Christmas, so I am bringing you one for New Year’s.”

I was listening to this while Maya was standing beside me. (Remember, she is the daughter who told Santa that all she wanted for Christmas was for me to get a digital camera because mine was stolen…)

She smiled a secretive sort of smile, looked up at me and said, “Santa is so smart. He knew that was going to happen.”

And I cried. I cried because of the generosity of my sister. I cried because of the sweetness and innocence of my daughter.

And I laughed at the same time.

Thank you Shannon. You made my year.

Sherri – How can I really say no to another Sher-bear. Oh, gag, it’s awful, isn’t it?

Janie – My sister just happens to be a great world traveler. I think she would be totally up for a swanky international Canadian adventure! (I’ll try to get her to leave her “accent” at home.)

Yay for the new camera. And your kids are way too cute. Even when captured in fuzzy pictures.
