When I think back on what seemed to make you the happiest over our family’s extended Thanksgiving weekend at Nonna and Papa’s house in Alabama, I would definitely have to say it was when you caught a lizard in a pile of leaves in the back yard.
You loved him so much, that it made leaving quite difficult.
First, Mommy and I had to explain to you how unlikely he would stay alive if we took him back home to Tennessee.
Then we explained to you that he couldn’t simply live as a captive pet in the garage either. It was very sad for you to have to say goodbye.
Yet still, he brought you a lot of joy- and that’s what matters more.
