slipping through my fingers

what is it about mama mia! that just makes you want to cry...i recall the first time i saw it, on a KLM flight to manila. i was happily the only one awake to see me blubbering like a baby. i can't find a proper version of the video on youtube, but here's the best i could find....and tho' sabin is only 9, it still brings tears to my eyes...



and while i'm not sentimental and generally despise sentimentality, how do you hold onto the goodness of right now, treasure it and memorize it and not let it slip through your fingers? if you know how, do tell me...

Julie, I cried at it too. Thank you so much, I recieved my rock in the mail today from the gift of jewels and your friendship bracelet. I was thrilled. When my friends go away to distant places and ask what to bring me back, I always so oh just pick me up a rock off the ground...so I am thrilled to add one all the way from Denmark. Thank you so much for your kindness...I love the feather. smiles and hugs to you.

J - S and I are always wistful about how fast our girl is changing... she just turned 4! I think I'm in for a lot more sentiment from my man...

thanks for this
