Sophie was born to give and love. She continually gives not only tangible gifts from the stash of toys in her room, but she also gives hugs, love and kind words to any person who will accept her gifts.
Right before Doug left for his most recent business trip, Sophie handed him a marble, and thanked him for taking us out to dinner. As she handed it to him, she explained that it was no “normal” marble, but rather a memory marble. The next day, as the two of them chatted on the phone together, miles apart, she told him to hold the marble because it had “yesterday in it”. That “yesterday” was a very special day for Sophie, a day in which the four of us enjoyed time together over a lovely dinner and dessert, to celebrate our life together. She’s apparently a writer as well.
