Downstairs, Wonder Boy was engaged in therapy. Voices murmured, paper shuffled. Toys clattered.
Upstairs, the house was quiet. Christmas tree lights flickered. The refrigerator hummed.
Finished practicing piano, Amaze Girl worked her projects. Books, pencils, crayons, markers, pens. "Nonnie," she said, without looking up. "I love…" She paused. "…the way you love me. No matter what."
I do love this sweet girl. So. Much. Around the moon on a spoon. Now and forever. To the end of time and back again.
No matter what.
