This. This needs eyes. Julia is an inspiration, and Helena is lucky to have an honorary niece like her. Personally, I think Helena’s post is a candidate to be Freshly Pressed – not for Helena; she’s had that honor – but for Julia. So Julia knows that small actions and words have an impact. So, tweet, reblog and make the blog-a-verse bear witness to an awesome little girl!
A couple of weeks ago, I told you about how my friend Jim and his family had their basement flooded with sewage and had to evacuate their home, suffering a very frustrating loss, and living on fast food and hotel TV for the last little while.

Wonderfully strange because she loves to tease me about my various whims and projects — “Look, Mommy, Helena’s sewing her book. I’m sewing my book, I’m sewing my book. Doesn’t she know you can just buy books at the store?”
“Yes, honey, but your Aunt Helena is…. special.”
I chose to take that as a compliment, darlings.
