Last night Dave and I had dinner with Sarah, Bruce, Julia and Emma. It's always a delight, but there was something special about it that has stuck with me.
After dinner, the girls brought out some of their books that they wanted to give to Robyn, who, like them, has been a book girl from the time she could see. We looked through them, and I was pleased to see the warmth the girls still had for the books, and I could imagine how much Robyn was going to enjoy them.
What made it especially wonderful was glancing at Bruce and knowing he was taking the same emotional walk that I was. We looked at each other and said something unoriginal like, "Oh, they grow up so fast...", but it was a truly heart-warming moment that I'll cherish forever.
