Thank You Madeline

Madeline Lester
April 7, 2004 – January 16, 2008

I have more to do tonight and I’m getting in later tomorrow, but I saw this face and decided I’d better go home to do from there what else I’ve got on my plate.

This is Madeline Lester. I don’t know her or her family, but she reminds me of the face I used to see smiling like that when she was 2 or 3. My daughter Sarah, my oldest, changed my life more than anyone I’ve ever known and I couldn’t be happier for it. I want to get home before she, now 9, has to go to bed.

Madeline, according to the obituary, died on Jan. 16.

One commenter wrote, “I will hug my children even tighter tonight.”

Oh my, yes.
