Don’t You Weep

September 25, 2010

I cried today because my mom moved from the little town in rural Oklahoma that I grew up in to a mid-sized city in Texas. Not that far. It’s a good, good thing for her; it’s where her sister and all my cousins live. But I still cried. That’s how strong roots are, I guess.

But isn’t wonderful what a body can do? If Theresa Andersson can be a one-woman band, I can grow more roots.

    This is a big deal, girl. It’s ok to cry . . . And we know your roots will grow deeper and wider.

  2. Yeah, what Courtney said. Sometimes we have to be uprooted in order to find better soil to grow in.

    Honey, a tree doesn’t need to grow new roots if the farmer goes away. You’re already big and strong.

    Yeah! Le Petit is in New Orleans!
