How’s this for a little tug on the heart…(Thanks TomO)

I found it as I was just about to get some sleep before I head off to New Zealand early in the morning. 

TomO, the little rooster, pinned it to my back-pack.  

Must say, it put a little tear in my eye, so I went to his room and watched him sleeping for a little while…

    Thanks, TomO is an amazing person, a source of great inspiration for me, for Janet. And plenty of stories to pen on the New Zealand trip…

    Oh, wow. I didn’t know that I hope I inspire my girls until I read your son’s letter. That is so great! I’m looking forward to hearing about your adventure!
