We all have our favorite children’s books. Mine is the Velveteen Rabbit. The passage about being ‘real’ pulls at my heartstrings every
time. The bunny in the photo is the constant companion of my dear friend’s Ameilia and Paul’s daughter. She brought bunny for a girl’s sleepover by me - she, her mom and me.
“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”
