Green like an emerald.
That’s the way her daughter describes the color of her eyes. Shimmering blue green pools of light that dance when she smiles. She’s a busy working mother and her daughter is her inspiration and her energy. She tells her daughter she can be whatever she wants to be when she grows up—a surgeon, an artist, the president!
Her daughter tells her she wants to be a large, spotted leopard because she loves polka dots and climbing trees. Her mother tells her anything is possible and she believes her because, after all, her mother is magical. She’s always kind to others and makes heaping trays of cheesy nachos. Their evenings and weekends are filled with songs, art projects and games.
Her mother gave her a very special basket for her birthday. It’s called the Songerie basket and it’s a storage space for dreams. She told her daughter to write down her wishes, hopes and dreams on tiny pieces of paper and store them inside the basket.
Someday, when the time is right, she told her, all of your dreams will come true.
