My Takeaways from this story:
In the Picnic Rattle there is an underlying message that When you want to find someone special to you, you want to know how they feel, you want to be with them, you want to watch and listen to them, covet and plan special time with them, that is the only way to know them.
Also revealed is that I had not thought things through like I thought, I could have ruined everything. My headstrong way may have revealed a side of me that I was afraid to show.
Another takeaway from this latest story is that I have self doubts, insecurities like many do, so I hope there is a connection to many others in this one.
But most of all, Cherish, I hope that the message is that you Cherish the special one you find, because that "one of a kind", is hard to find.
I’m always amazed at the story telling process, there is the initial and fun event, then there is going back and remembering what you were thinking, and why you were reacting as you did. Its a growing experience, fun, exciting, and yet deep and comforting. Thanks to you all for putting up with me for all these years.
