Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars

by Amy Turn Sharp


Good things:
New Domino Mag, homemade apple butter, and my old Strawberry Shortcake mug brought to me by my father.

Great things:
Baskets of blocks for summer festival and a phone call from Canada.


The Best Thing:
Sweet Joe.
Even during our weekend without kids he takes all the time needed to help me with my projects and dreams. Finn talks about how lucky he is lately. Lucky that he has so many matchbox cars, lucky that he lives near an ice cream shop, lucky that he is four. Over and over again.
I am so lucky too. I am lucky in this world of uncertainty and crud that every day I get to be his best thing too. I am lucky that even on hard days being with him is like the feeling you get when you hear yr favorite song. Over and over again.
