A Simple Little Love

My little girl has her first crush. It's a fourth grade boy with sparkly blue eyes and an appreciation for baseball.

"Should I tell him what's in my heart, Mommy?" she asked me after school. "What if I tell him and he doesn't like me back?"

"That's the thing about love," I told her. "It's a risk."

Daney took the risk and called the boy. "I just think you're a really great person," she said.

He said he thought she was a really great person, too.

He's right.

Why does this make me cry?

He's a lucky boy - she's amazing.

Just wait, Christy.

Juliet will be doing this same thing in about a year.
