Emmett and Erling

follow the link below for the story....this video was causing troubles...

I hope you can see this story.
It is very sweet and wonderful...but it does break my heart.

Gosh it reminds me of the Mr. Putter and Tabby books by Cynthia Rylant.
I can't wait to show Katie this story.

    What a sweet story. What a sweet friendship.

    It makes me think of my grandfather. He's been gone now for almost 21 years, but this week I interviewed someone for an article I'm writing, and he actually knew my grandfather! I was so happy to find this out.

    As I get older, I'm no longer so concerned that good things last forever--because they won't. It's more important to appreciate things like friends while you have them in your life.

    I believe the love and friendship between Emmet and Earling will endure because both have been changed for the better by it.

    Thank you for helping start my day on such a kind, loving note.

    Tears for friendship and goodbyes, but I hope that Emmet's parents will find a way for the two friends to visit even after the moves. Cynthia Rylant is a favorite author of mine. She wrote one of my favorite read aloud picture books, When I Was Young In The Mountains. I have read that book to children in preschool and senior adults and everyone likes it. ;-)
    love and prayers and a thank you for the focus on friendship today, jep

  4. What a sweet man. Thanks for sharing the story.

    what an awesome story. I hope that they don't move too far away and that the two friends can continue to visit. When I grow up, I want to be like Erling!

    This is so sweet, I love it. Restores your faith in humanity, innocence and love! Karen F.

  8. When I was growing up we had a lot of senior citizens in our neighborhood. I was a little chatterbox and visited them frequently. Such wonderful memories! I am 54 now and sadly they all have passed.

  9. saw this on our local news here in Wheaton, and it brought tears to my eyes.... I love this story even though it's sad the way it's all coming to a close. These two (and especially little Emmett) will always have that wonderful relationship in their hearts, and for that, I can shed tears of joy...

  11. The snow blower path between the back doors...says it all. I know so many say grandparent I'd the greatest stage and one if the joys of growing older. Even if your grands aren't next door...maybe there are other little friends to bring joy. I loved this, thanks.

  12. You should have warned us to get the tissues ready! What a sweet story.

    I am presently reading the Mr. Putter and Tabby books to my 5 year old grandson. He loves them (so do I!)
