Once upon a time, in a land near near to here

I'm grateful for small little reminders that life is good.

This week I hemmed and hawed and pitied myself a little bit. I finally came out of the stalker closet and commented on the blog of the wife of someone I took French classes with at WSU. Lost yet?

I just wanted to tell her that I appreciate her posts on motherhood and her beautiful photos and the like. She proceeded to show her husband my blog since I mentioned I'd taken classes with him a few years ago.

When she in turn commented on my blog, she said that their third little girl is kind of named after me. Me? Really? Well, not exactly me. More like a version of my name has always stuck with her husband so when he chose the name for the babe, "Olivia" popped up. Isn't that lovely?

It made me think of this quote from my favorite red-head:

"'That's a lovely idea, Diana,' said Anne enthusiastically. 'Living so that you beautify your name, even it it wasn't beautiful to begin with... making it stand in people's thoughts for something so lovely and pleasant that they never think of it by itself.'"

Thanks for the pick-me-up Kate.
