just how emotional I am?
I cried, both times that I read this. Yes, I am a walking, pregnant cheeseball.
Also, I can’t get through this book with Gregory without tearing up. Especially the end where it says:
For never before in story or rhyme
(not even once upon a time)
has the world ever known a you, my friend,
and it never will, not ever again…
Heaven blew every trumpet
and played every horn
on the wonderful, marvelous
night you were born.
Yup. Scared yet? 😉
