We got your message Ray! The girls and their Grandad and I were painting our guest room this weekend. It is to be Nora's new room; Maggie and Nora having too much stuff to cram into one space. Grandad and I worked hard all day and we were almost finished. He suggested we just paint over the vent in the room, but I wanted to leave it white so he unscrewed the cover and lifted it off to find: NORA
A love note! A love note from her Dad written before he ever knew that this would be her room. Written when he thought he would be painting her rooms forever. But now, something linking her Dad to her present, her new room, the Nora that is growing older.
We do not always have the opportunity to tell our own story. Sometimes others have to carry on our legacy for us. How glad I am for actions like this that remind us of Ray. The Dad that painted his daughter's name inside the vent. A secret love note.
What is lost is found.
