BEAUTIFUL 7.4.2003

Anna's birthday is coming up in a month or so. Recently Kathleen was having a conversation with Anna about who she was going to invite. She listed off a bunch of names. And then she said something that really surprised me. (I have, of course, changed some the involved names.)

"I am going to invite Abel and Isabella" Anna said, matter-of-factly, "even though they don't like me."

"Sweetie, they don't like you?" Kathleen asked.

"No. They are jealous of my beauty." Anna said.

"They are?" I asked. Then she paused a little while.

"Yes. They don't think that I am beautiful, but I am." she said, like she was saying the color of a car or some other fact.

Well, despite some logical contradictions, when I heard that I just loved it. I feel like yelling "Go Anna!" If you can believe one thing for the next hundrede years believe this. You are beautiful my dear. Absolutely so.
