This morning Oliver and Mommy read one of Mommy's favorite children's books. Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. It is a wonderful story about a woman who sets out to do three things: travel to faraway places, live by the sea, and make the world a more beautiful place. By the end of the story Miss Rumphius decides to make the world a more beautiful place by scattering lupine seeds around the town by the sea where she lives...her efforts where successful, the flowers are perennial so they keep coming back every year. (Mommy likes things that come back.) Miss Rumphius also inspired many people to keep making the world a more beautiful place.
Oliver loved the story, so does Mommy. We are thinking up ways we can make the world a more beautiful place. Sweet dreams....
