How could Ilana be old enough to be married? I mean, I understand the math, but it was breath-taking to watch her and Stefan pledge to join their lives. I remember her as a stubborn little girl, as a kind friend, as a talented dancer. And now she is all grown up. She is intelligent and passionate and loving. I feel so honored to be part of her life.
In the spirit of love and compassion, I thought I'd post a photo of the mittens I am knitting for The Children of Pine Ridge before I box them up. I want to send them before winter ends!
