We have an older neighbor lady named Marion,
she lost her husband a few years ago which was very hard for her.
One day, a few summers ago I took Audrey down to visit Marion.
Since then, Audrey has always had a special place in her heart for Marion
and I think the feeling is mutual.
Audrey often asks to go visit Marion, and I usually oblige.
Audrey will go to the door and knock, Marion comes to the door and immediately asks us in.
She loves to make Audrey feel special by asking her many questions about herself,
she takes notice of Audrey attire, and seems genuinely interested in whats going on in her little life.
Marion loves to teach Audrey about things she has around her house, plants, rocks, driftwood, flowers and then inside the house we have a lot to learn from her spinning wheel, Gem stones and most recently, her Norwegian themed Christmas tree.
Yesterday Audrey was here for the afternoon and she (out of the blue) asked
if we could take some of the cookies we had made last week and share them with Marion
How could I not honor that sweet requests.
So we wrapped the cookies up on a plate and down the road we went
Marion was so excited to see Audrey and she couldn't thank her enough for thinking of her.
We were invited in to visit, while Marion ohhh'd and ahhhh'd some more about the cookies
I just love this thoughtful little girl with a great big heart
Marion's beautiful arrangement near the front door, she is an avid gardener and
knows how to put together a festive front step
