. . .It’s a clever mashup from a great song in a good musical that inspired a marvelous film. Now, I know a lot of you may be groaning at that! Fair enough. But the movie, particularly, has a bunch of heart-tuggingly sentimental connections for my family.
One of my favorite things is being an aunt and I was reminded of that again recently when my nine-year-old nephew and I spent the day together. Just us.
Lately, I’ve been noticing how “grownup” he seems. Not just taller, but also developing his own thoughts and ideas. All very interesting. I’m glad he’s curious about lots of things and asks questions. It’s give-and-take though, because without him I’m sure I wouldn’t have ever been embroiled in a light sabre battle, become a Lego master, or laughed and cried my way through as many animated films as I have. Who’s teaching whom? I often wonder.
I like that the Harlequin Heartwarming series focuses on different family relationships and multi-generations. Whether those relationships are easy or challenging, writing and reading about them can be such a positive, supportive way for us all to connect.
Happy Canada Day and Happy 4th of July!
