My very favorite children's' illustrator from long ago is Jessie Willcox Smith. This image of hers is not exactly my favorite but conveys my feelings of the past week. Sometimes life feels like the head on our best dolly has broken and our heart along with it. Life disappoints us in various ways and you just wanna cry. Then, you gotta pick up the pieces and keep on keepin' on.
I want to be one that helps stitch broken hearts back together, but sometimes I need help with mine too. Knowing that friends are there for the heart mending part is a true comfort.
I feel better already.
