I am coming out of "retirement" for a very special reason. I was sitting in Reagan's room last night impatiently waiting for the little Owl to go to sleep and decided to check my email. I had a notification that I had a new comment on the blog. As I read the words that young Mary wrote on my 1st ever post (#1) I found myself crying. Her words touched me so deeply. Since her comment was anonymous I didn't have a way to respond privately but I feel like the words I have for Mary are words that everyone can benefit from in some way so, an open letter on a blog I've neglected for 24 months was the answer.
First, her comment (I debated re-printing it here but since I was able to publish it on my first blog I felt like it would be ok here, too)
