Day 49 – A Picture A Day While My Soldier’s Away

I took Kylie to the movie in the park tonight. We met up with Sarah, Lily, and Ethan to watch Alice in Wonderland. Kylie & Lily played ring around the rosie, danced, laughed and made a new friend. Caitlyn was from the next blanket over, but from the outside looking in you would think that they have been friends forever. I love Kylie’s ability to fearlessly befriend everyone. It shows me that she loves people as much as I do – that whether she knows someone for 5 minutes or 5 years, she will still treat them as a friend. When we left the movie, Kylie ran back to give Caitlyn a hug goodbye. “See you soon” she squealed as we walked away. Realistically, we all know that’s improbable. I hope she does see Caitlyn again one day though – for the sheer defiance of reality and the sweet repercussions that come with treating everyone as a friend.
