The author as a little girl living in sunny southern California.
She was happy, she was loved.
This little girl loved to read.
And so does this one...
She is happy, she too is loved.
Perhaps she will be a teacher like her mother, grandmother, grandfather, and great grandmother? I should mention that they were all avid readers! Time will tell what this little girl will become. As long as she knows she is loved, like the little California girl 40 years ago, I suppose nothing else could matter much at all! :-)
