Always


Just as Jed was going to sleep, he suddenly called out, 'Mama, can you come here...and bring pen and paper'.

Curious about this request, and it's timing, I did.
He looked at me sleepily and said, 'Write this down...

...Always be wild, never be tamed'

'You can leave it on my desk, I just never want to forget that'.

Be still, my heart. That kid, honestly.

  2. This is so beautiful! He will always take his wild heart with him through life. I hope you keep a book of his sayings, because this is a very switched on kid - as of course you know.

    1. I tear up sometimes thinking about it. So spontaneous and real. I used to keep a book of all his sayings, but it has degenerated into notes into the margins of my workbooks in the last few years...must do something about hustling them all into one place again. Treasure. x
