the dragonfly whisperer

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.

Hahaha... I figured she had that special animal trait... you know, since she can talk to the moon and stuff. It was only a matter of time.

Very sweet story...give her a love from Grandma...I am so glad the dragonfly made it all the way there, it promised me it would find her and tell her, so relieved to hear he made it!!

Gramps is so delighted to hear Laine got something from him.
And, he still stands by his story!
And I agree with Gaengy, all dragonflys are on special assignment to let little ones know they are loved!

So sweet! Love the new family pictures, you guys are beatiful. We are sad we won't be seeing you this christmas since none of us work at the 4Life anymore. Looks like you guys are having a blast down there!

You should write a book. Seriously, you are such a good writer.

What I wouldn't do to have a Dragonfly communicate with me!??
