The Girl With Blue Eyes (Happy Father's Day)

Once upon a time there was a girl with blue eyes who was born to loving parents in a magical land called Edmonton. She had a happy childhood full of community, creativity, and opportunities for learning and growth.

Her father was a kind man with sparkling hazel eyes and a gift for helping people. He was hilariously goofy to those who knew him personally and respected by all. The little girl with blue eyes knew that her father would always be there for her, no matter what.

One day, the little girl with blue eyes told her father that she wanted an animal to love. Her father planned a family trip to find some fuzzy friends. After over five hours of driving they arrived at a friendly home with many beautiful animals. The little girl with blue eyes helped to pick out two fluffy white sister bunnies to take home and love. She named them Flotsam and Jetsam. They rode home in a cardboard box.

When they got home, the little girl with blue eyes asked her father where the bunnies would sleep. He built a wonderful hutch with a little house for them to cuddle and stay warm in, lots of windows for peeking out, and a place for their food and water.

The bunny sisters brought the little girl with blue eyes a lot of joy and she was always grateful to her father for listening and helping her take care of her animals to love.

They all lived happily ever after until the fluffy white bunnies died of old age and the girl with blue eyes moved far away from her hilariously goofy father.

The girl with blue eyes continued to love her father from far away. She looked forward to their visits together and for the way that he would make her laugh with his adorable goofiness. She had children of her own and tried to be kind, helpful, and goofy when needed.

The girl with blue eyes is waiting for the day when her children ask her for an animal to love.

The End

~Happy Father's Day to my father with sparkling hazel eyes. I love him so much. And I am not quite ready to write a children's book because I couldn't resist drawing a picture of dead rabbits.
