So one of the boybarians and I head off to our Forest Wardens meeting last night. The older kids are starting a multi-week project to cut and carve their own canoe paddles.<br><br>
At the end of the meeting, one of the other parents comes up to me with a rough-cut board and says "I'll finish cutting that one for Nicolas this weekend, so that he can have something to work on when he gets better."<br><br>
Somehow that got me all misty-eyed.

That's what it's all about, Grizzly. Lovely.<br><br>
I forgot about this until now:<br>
This last Sunday was Palm Sunday and all the parishioners were handed a piece of palm leaf to commemorate when Jesus entered Jerusalem.<br><br>
Anyway, I was sitting with the second grade Sunday school kids that I help herd around. I mostly help this little gal named Lizzie who is mentally challenged. She's an absolute delight, but a handful.<br><br>
One of the nice traditions we have is to shape the palm leaf into a cross. Lizzie and I couldn't figure it out. One of her classmates, Brett, noticed this and gave her his cross.<br><br>
I started crying right there.
