glass ceilings and other explainable myths

Did I mention over the summer, while the kiddos were with their dad I switched rooms with them? I gave them the Master bedroom, not because they mastered anything - but because it’s bigger, and since there are two of them and only one of me…

Anyway, I tell you that to tell you this:

Every night when I turn off my lights and ponder the day, I am blanketed by a milky-way of stars shining above me, as if - much like most women :o) - I’m trapped beneath a glass ceiling. It is beautiful to say the least…

No mystery, here, though.
A couple of years ago, my eldest, Danna, sent Jo and Jack glow-in-the-dark stars for Christmas - to place upon their walls and ceiling.
We did just that.
And when I moved all their other belong-ings to their new room, I forgot about the daytime visibly-invisible stars.

And now as I lay me down to sleep… I am blessed by stars from my eldest.
(Thank you, Danna. I’m going to have to find some replacements for the girlies’ new ceiling. This is too cool to keep all to myself. Besides, the stars were theirs first.)

Stars’ Light…
Stars Bright…
First Stars I see tonight…
I wish I may…
I wish I might…
Have all your wishes come true tonight.

Enjoy & In Joy

(this one's for all of you - but mostly for Peaches - and she knows why)
Jack & Jo wish you a great year from SkyLine Drive (they miss their sisters almost as much as I do).
