It appears Laine has the gift. I'm so proud! A family trait, though present on both sides of her family, still incredbly rare, a virtue not to be taken lightly.
I'm talking about a gift difficult to understand. A keen awareness, a gift of discernement... Said oddity deals with the ablility of to relating to animals and insects, to communicate with them on a higher, more profound level.
Her maternal Aunt Kathy posses such a gift. For Kate it is cats. So yeah, they wink at her. Not a joke. Just ask her, she'll tell you. Cats wink. At her. Some dogs too I think.
And her paternal Grandfather, he once made eye contact with a bee. The bee stared him down the lane of the apple orchard. And he and this bee, they made eye contact. True story. He told me this himself, face to face.
And now Laine. Just this afternoon she told me,
"A dragonfly came down to say hello to me. It told me it loves me."
A special day. Very, very special day. She has the gift. The gene is not recessive.
