Of course this card is ‘Blank Inside’. What could they possibly have written that would have been as amazing as that image on the cover? It stopped me in my tracks as I walked down the street. It was sort of like simultaneously staring at the accident and going to a small town carnival while taking hallucinogenics. Not that I have ever done that, but – you know – it is how I would imagine it to be.
As soon as I took the shot, both my daughter and I agreed that it reminded us of one of her friends. I immediately posted it on her Facebook wall.
So, this is where the Time to Cry Tuesday piece comes in. (I am sure you were wondering where I was going with this). I have known this particular friend of hers since pre-school – almost her entire life. I have watched her grow up as I have watched my own kids.
I consider her one of my own.
Her humor is like ours; leaning towards the offbeat (is that an understatement?) . She is bright and fun and funny and…
the first person I thought of to share this with.
Which made me realize that all these little girls had grown up to be women who I love to be around. Their wit and wisdom is beyond their years and they have a way of making me laugh at a moment’s notice.
And they can surely teach me a thing or two about honing my Magnet for the Absurd skills.
So here’s to you, Miss Kate, a blog post dedicated to all you have become. I cannot wait to see how far you will go.
Hugs, love and come over and bake any time your little heart desires.

sounds like Kate is lucky to know you…and you are lucky to know her! Oh the joys of having kids become adults. Nothing better!
Reciprocal luck. Love her and her family to pieces.
Doesn’t the picture look like Aunt Claire (may she rest in peace)
Yes folks, this is correct. This does look like our Great Aunt Claire.
Nice “dog do”!
What a wonderful post and I can totally relate!! Thanks for sharing.
Amy! I just saw this. What a sweet post. I love you and am lucky to have you as my friend and jana-mama.
I did cry even though I didn’t have time. A wonderful tribute to a wonderful girl from a wonderful woman. Thank you Amy – xx Ane
