Letter #3 (50 Love Letters)

S, My love, my heart, my laughter, my joy. I'm sorry I made you cut your hair. I'm really sorry. You loved your hair and I made you cut it and it wasn't a cool move. "I love my hair more than I love girls," you told me, heartbroken. (You LOVE girls.) It wasn't a parenting moment that I'm proud of and I'll always regret it and yet you still found a way to laugh about it with me and your brothers. Anyways, enough about your hair. I love your laugh and your smile and your perfect teeth and your golden skin and your rock solid heart and how hard you try at math even though it's not your best subject. (It wasn't mine either.)

Letter #2 (50 Love Letters)

Dear B, There are no words to describe my love for you. This is my favorite picture of you of all time. I think Caroline took it. Your smile lights up my entire world.

My favorite thing to do is watch you on the soccer field.

Nena, We Love You!

Our awesome and much-loved Home Caregiver Nena left Kopila Valley today to return home to the United States. She has worked with us for the better part of 3 years, and she will be missed. She makes us laugh every morning at the breakfast table, she heals whatever ails us when we're sick, she lifts up the whole mood of the house, and she walks around in a cloud of contagious joy. She is one in a million. The kids put on a special farewell satsung just for her, complete with singing and dancing and poems and even a little play about her, complete with yoga and essential oils (two very Nena things). One of our older girls wrote her this sweet letter and read it aloud that night.
