You don't need a penny just to hang around...
Yesterday's entry in my sketchbook.
My dad taught me to love and take care of the world around me.
He once did minor surgery on a morning dove that hurt her wing. My dad was the world to me.
He taught me about plants and grew all sorts of things in the backyard underneath the grapefruit tree. I always loved exploring and following him around outside, checking out all of his experiments.
Yesterday the baby cardinals hatched and today I realized how perfectly fitting, on my dad's birthday. He told me every time I saw a cardinal I could make 3 wishes. He never told my two older sisters that. I'm lucky to have had so much time with him.
