her jump rope.

K’s new favorite past time is jump roping.
she does it every day and counts her jumps.


but she had a hard day last week.
her beloved jump rope
the one with glitter inside, broke.


she came into the house, sobbing.
B and i were sure she had badly hurt herself
she was so upset.
when D asked what happened,
she couldn’t even get the words out.


so after many, many, many, many tears
we decided some art therapy
was in order.


“i love you jump rope.
i will miss you.
i will miss you.”

For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror;
then we shall see face to face.
Now I know in part;
then I shall know fully,
even as I am fully known.
1 Corinthians 13:12
