  19. So true. And quite literally, too! A friend gave me 12 little flowerpots and 12 different kids of seeds. Out of the twelve, my two daughters adopted one seed each. All received equal water and light. But wouldn’t you know it, I kid you not, the two that were adopted and more loved grew the fastest and the tallest! Isn’t that something!

    I love the colors in this one. And the green in her hair! Awesome!

    Thank you, Rachel, for my special yin-yang hug. And thank you for sharing that story about the dove. What a lovely, heartwarming story. Perhaps there is a lot of truth to it. 🙂
