Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.
—Roald Dahl

I do believe in magic. :)


Been kind of crazy week here. (So what else is new, right? lol) Not being as productive as I’d planned. I’m still working hard on the Gratitude kit and therefore, no Friday Freebie this week. Sorry ’bout that. It will return next week though!

But now on a sad note, one of Jordan’s little friends from junior high (they’ve done acting–including Oklahoma) was killed in a freak accident yesterday. Another 13-year old girl decided she ought to drive her aunt’s car to school and while the group of kids were waiting for the bus, the girl accidentally hit the gas instead of the brakes as she was making a turn onto the road and hit this girl. Jordan’s good friend, who was standing right by this girl, watched it happen.

How simply devastating.

Kids do “dumb” things and 99% of the time they are lucky and nothing happens. How sad was it for this outcome to have occurred. I can only imagine what this little girl’s life is going to be like.

Just makes you want to hug your kids, because as Jordan said, “Who would have thought, you’d be waiting for a school bus and your life would be over.” The junior high students are all wearing pink in honor of her (her favorite color) and Jordan wore pink to high school too, as I’m sure a lot of kids will be.

Now, go hug your kids and really enjoy the weekend.

    How tragic….Sometimes kids don't think and you can't have a do over once it's done even though you wish with all your heart you could. So sorry for Jordan and her friends. Have a nice weekend Kerri.

    Oh my heart is breaking for everyone…those who lost this special girl, her family and friends as well the girl (and her family and friends) who took the car. That one brief indiscretion has led to such heartbreaking disaster.

    That is so sad. My friend at work and I were just talking the other day about how in just a split second life can just change on a dime.
    My heart goes out to her family and all of her
    friends.
