The Mom's Imaginary Childhood BFF:
2 parts Meg Murray (A Wrinkle in Time --Meg's brilliant and normal)
1 part Nancy Drew (Wouldn't it be cool to have a sleuth for a best friend?)1 part Laura Ingalls Wilder (I didn't think of her as cool, but I liked the way she let her bonnet fly even when Ma chided her for it.)1 part Jo (Little Women --do I have to explain?)1 part Fairy Godmother (Again, need I explain?)
As an adult I am lucky to have The Dad as my BFF, but do I admit to fantasizing about what it might be like to have the Bennett Sisters as friends (Pride and Prejudice) or to have coffee with Vianne (Chocolat) or tea with Margaret Mead (I have really dreamed of tea party.)
This week we challenge you to dive into
your imagination and
