a kind thing

Yes, this is kindness happening in another thoroughly tousled room in this house.

Julia started music lessons two weeks ago, taking up the trumpet, James' old one, the one my parents bought him.  We had it tuned up for her and it's exciting to begin.

Until it isn't.

Until you're no good at it and can't read music.  Learning is so slow going at the beginning.

But Lydia has been bringing the clarinet home from school to help Julia practice.  They retreat to this room together and work on music.  It's been a huge help.

Their out of tune, honking practice scares the puppy a bit. Her ears flatten, she whines.

Get used to it Elin.

And thank you my Kari, aka Lydia child for extending this kindness to your little sister.

I love you both,  MOM
