Wind in the willow- September 10, 2012
“Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.”
I have had willow trees on my mind all day today. I can’t remember the last time I thought about a willow tree. I’m quite sure I have never thought about them many times in one day. But it’s not everyday a new little Willow comes into your life.
Meet my new cousin Willow Ivy. My cousin Scott, his sweet wife Allison, and 3-year-old daughter Lana welcomed Willow yesterday.
I can’t wait to meet her and smooch her cheeks! I showed Charlotte pictures of her today. She grinned, pointed, and clapped her hands with a giggle.
I know this quote is by Bruce Lee. I know he is a martial arts movie star. I understand that is kind of funny for a quote relating to a new baby, but read it again. Welcome Willow! I’m confident you can can live up to your name, staying strong in life’s winds.
