  1. Your daughter is generous indeed; and glitter-filled and lovely.

    But when I read this post, I saw myself in the rushed mother who isn’t stopping to really listen (not that this is you at all); but it is me, often enough. So frequently these days I find that I’m half-hearing what my children are telling me; that only part of my ears are tuned in and my frustration at their interruptions take center stage.

    Even now as I’m typing my daughter walked in and I thought, “I hope I can finish this comment before she needs me.”

    So now, it’s time for me to shut down the computer and be with my family.
    Thank you so much for this reminder, Galit.

    Your daughter’s generosity of spirit comes from you.
    And her heart.

    Just beautiful.

      Thank you, as always, for your words Julie. They are perfection.

      And for the record- oh my, yes. Yes, that is me rushing and not listening. I love that she “put her foot down” and made herself BIGGER in my eyes, in the best way, you know?

      {Sparkles for everyone}

    I am so happy you saw the glitter, even in that last moment. I hate getting ready in the morning; I am always way too close to late 🙁

    I love their way of making us stop dead in our tracks and slowing us down…your girl so so special to write a card for that child’s mom.

  4. I am so glad she wanted to share her gift with you! What joy she had about the card she created.

    Thank you for hosting Galit! I am a new huge fan of her. Galit, if you are reading this, these lines: Out of the edge of my heart
    My mental checklist is noisy……. in relationship to my daily interactions with my three small grandchildren are RIGHT on the mark! I feel them so heavily at times!

  6. Galit! You capture the hurry hurry rush rush of our lives so well. I am so grateful my son’s school is in our backyard! Slowly down in the fast, super-scheduled world is no easy feat. But you always seem to find time.

    • Galit Breen says:

      Thank you, Renee. I’m always thankful for your faith in me!

      {And I should admit here, that our school is way close, too. Ahem. Yes, I really am *that* bad at getting out the door! 🙂

  7. So sweet. I love the goodness in her little heart. So glad you had just enough time to see the glitter.

  8. Caroline has Asperger’s syndrome, it’s SO hard for me to distinguish between the times when I need to pause and listen and the times when she just needs to do what I said first. Because she is mortally convinced of the importance of whatever she has to tell me. And half the time that something is “I found a ROCK yesterday!” She has a rock obsession. She finds a rock every time she walks past our front flowerbeds which are ringed with colorful gravel. On the other hand? She’s going to sparkle when she sees the rock tumbler she’s getting for Christmas.

    • Galit Breen says:

      Hi Jessie! It is so very hard to know what to do when, isn’t it?

      P.S. Kayli loves rocks, too! We got her a rock tumbler for her last birthday and oh my, yes- sparkles galore! 🙂
