Oh, my! I lost a whole Kate!
Besides listening to her beautiful music, I really enjoy her help. She is very versatile and helps me do everything from dusting, to stickering my Sonlight catalogs and cards, to beveling my homemade soap, to making soap balls and helping me bake cookies.
She is also an amazing cookie tester! One time she and her sister Evelyn and I made chocolate covered oreos-and then she was more like a chocolate covered Kate. Nice as always, but a bit sweeter.
Well, today we hit a milestone. Kate weighs 55 pounds and I have now lost 55 pounds, so I lost a whole Kate! Here we are together today. I don't know how I could have stood walking up and down stairs and doing all the tasks I do with a whole Kate added onto to my body--but I did it for years!
I am much happier having Kate stand in front of me and helping me than I was having her strapped to my back. [Not really you understand, but it is still something that I could have lost a whole girl and still have my whole self left!]
So, today was a red letter day. I lost a whole Kate and still have the real Kate to enjoy and love and watch grow into a wonderful young woman. I am a very blessed woman.
