Happy To Be Molly Kite

Dear Diary,

Did you ever just wake up happy? Well, you don’t wake up, because you are my journal, but if you did have to wake up, wouldn’t you want to wake up happy to be alive? This morning when I opened my eyes I took a minute to look all around my bedroom. I saw all kinds of things that are mine and that remind me of who I am.

Like for instance, I found Banjo’s old baseball cap hanging on the hook near the closet. He got tired of that ball cap and was going to throw it out, but I love things that are sort of worn out, so I keep it and look at all the pretty colors on it. On the floor of my room is my favorite pair of shoes. BRIGHT RED AND SUPER SHINY! I love them. They make me so happy when I see them.

The pile of Nana’s costume jewelry is on my dresser and I remember how silly she thought I was on the day I put every piece of it on. Hee hee. I love that memory. In fact, I love my life. I am okay with who I am. I am different than my friends who like television, iPads and spend their time staring at cell phones. I enjoy being outside in the fresh air. Sometimes I kick off my shoes and run barefooted down to the water. I love the feeling I get when being in nature.

And then there is my doll, Faith. Having Faith with me all the time is just part of who I am. I feel safe. I feel loved. I feel happy having Faith. Molly Kite and Faith

I am lucky to be me. It’s great having dreams. I love this day! ! I sure am happy to be me and today I just wanted to tell the world. Well, gotta run, I am writing a list of all the magical things I want to be, do and have in my life. I’m on number 632!!

Blueberry kisses~

Mothers Day Every Day

Dear Diary~

Today was Momma’s Special Day. I just feel overflowing with gladness and thanks about all of the good things mother’s everywhere do to positively affect children. I know that being a Mom is more than just keeping me warm and dry and fed. My mom supports my dreams and goals!

I know being a mother means that she thinks about me and Banjo when we are not in the house. It means she tucks my blankets in real tight after she reads my bedtime story because she remembers that I like it that way but that Banjo wants his blankets to be all loosey goosey so he can expose his feet in the middle of the night. Being a mother means at the market she picks out the cherry gummy bears instead of those yucky orange ones. It means she can predict ‘zactly when I need a big bowl of skapetti and butter.It means she lets me try on her lipstick even when she isn’t home. (OOPS! I don’t know if that one is true.)

Mom. I love her pretty blue eyes and pink lipstick. She’s the best! I love her for all the things she does for me and it felt good to make her feel special yesterday, too. I really hope kids everywhere took the time to make a list of all the good things their Mom does for them. I hope they told their Mothers that they love, love, love her. I ‘specially hope they make their Mom’s a big bowl of skapetti and butter for a very special dinner.

Here’s hoping Mom’s everywhere have a little bit of dandelion fluff to make a wish upon. Happy Mother’s Day!

Pink lipstick kisses~

With Faith,

Friends Are Important

Dear Diary~

Sometimes I feel very alone. But not today! My friend Em visited me. She made me feel special and smart and like I matter. I felt really happy that she noticed me and I was glad that she spent time with me. I hope I made her feel as special as she made me feel. I love her as much as I love skapetti spaketti spaghetti!! It makes me hope that every person has a friend like Em and that every person will tell their friend they are glad to know them.

Nana says that the world is my mirror. It means that what is inside of me is reflected outside of me. If the kind, gentle, fun person that Em is is also who I am then I am very happy about that. It makes me want to be the best me EVER!

Thank you, God, for the chance to spend time with Em. She is someone I am thankful to know, she is a gift! I wish this for everyone.

Donkeys and Elephants Are Ruining The Race

Dear Diary,

There is a race going on between donkeys and elephants. Apparently there are colors involved, too. You can pick red or blue depending on who you want to win the race. This contest  is to see who will get to run this country, one of them will be the new President of the United States.

Apparently this race is making many adults angry. Why are the candidates fighting? Apparently some men represent donkeys and other men represent elephants. These donkeys and elephants who want to run our country just keep arguing. I saw the headlines in the newspaper, those who want to run our country are accusing each other of lying, cheating, and messing with the facts. They are messing up the race and making things confusing for the people watching.

Yikes?! Is that what leaders do? Not me. When I got picked to be the leader of the hide-and-seek game last weekend I was fair and kind and supportive. I had to make some rules, but I was careful to make choices that wouldn’t hurt people but that would help them to succeed.

I’m confused. Shouldn’t the people who are going to be in charge of this country be honest and kind? I think, or I thought, they are supposed to care about people no matter how much money they do or do not have. I also thought that if they were going to make decisions for people that they would do what was best for most of us. That isn’t what I am hearing.

This morning Nana Whacky took me to the local coffee shop for a mid-morning snack. The carrot cake muffin was sweet and tender, but the words coming from the mouths of the folks sitting at the table nearby were not. Their faces were angry and I heard words like “Lying. Stealing. Not trustworthy. Distorting the facts. Misleading. Criminals” There was a lot of fists being pounded on the table and some of the people actually looked like they had no hope. People were picking sides. Some people supported donkeys, some chose the elephant, but all of the folks were frustrated. It sounded to me like all the donkeys and elephants need to be put in a holding pen to think about what they are saying. Nana Whacky would say “Gosh dang it, they need a time out!” I agree.

I don’t like seeing people with no hope. Nana says that things are hard these days and “Things ain’t what they used to be in the good old days.” If old days are good then let’s have some new good old days.

People should play nice together. A race is just a game, and if these donkeys and elephants can’t be fair and run in the race with out lying and being hurtful, then maybe, just maybe, we could vote for a dolphin. They are intelligent and playful. Dolphins live in groups so they must know how to get along. You never see a dolphin angry or cheating someone.

If the dolphin thing doesn’t pan out, then Faith is telling me to vote for Nana Whacky to win the race. After all, she knows where the best coffee shops are.

Not Everyone Is So Lucky But Every One Needs Love


Dear Diary,

Today my heart felt sort of heavy in my chest. As Nana Whacky and I were walking down the street today I saw a lady who seemed really out of luck. She looked confused as she stood next to her two duffle bags. I think she hadn’t showered in a while and maybe she was hungry. I saw her put her hand out as some people walked passed her. One person passing her by said something not very nice to her. I saw the Lost Lady wince.

Nana saw the whole thing, too. She walked over to the woman, gave her a few dollars and pointed her in the direction of what Nana called a “shelter”. When Nana gave the Lost Lady a peace sign the Lost Lady smiled. When she smiled I think I saw sparks come from her eyes and it made me smile, too. I imagined winged angels guiding the smiling unlucky lady to “the shelter” and I felt better.

On the way home from town Nana and I talked about how some people’s luck runs out, but it doesn’t make them bad people. She said sometimes people make choices that aren’t so good, but still it doesn’t mean they aren’t loveable. “And Honey-Pot, doesn’t everyone deserve to be loved?!” she squealed at me as she pinched my cheek.

We spent the rest of the afternoon imagining the Lost Lady cleaned up and dressed in fine clothes working at the local grocery. We laughed as we thought about her having a lot of money and helping other people with it. I thought maybe she wasn’t unlucky after all, maybe she was just growing her love muscles.

*Sigh. I feel much better and Faith just whispered to me that the Lost Lady is going to be just fine.

Spaghetti kisses,
Molly Kite

Jackie Evancho Believes

Dear Diary, 

Today I saw Nana Whacky looking at this video of Jackie Evancho singing a pretty song. This little girl is amazing. I find her very inspiring. I hope other kids see her and believe that they can be special, too.

Snickerdoodle kisses,

MK (& Faith)

We don't watch World News

Molly Kite and companyDear Diary,

I don’t watch a lot of television. And now we watch even less of the world news. Mama and Papa sat down the whole family and we talked about this decision. Banjo started by saying the nightly news makes him angry. When he sees something going wrong he feels like fighting and slamming his fist. He says it’s hard to control his anger. Nana Whacky’s eyes got sort of wet and she said “I ain’t watching people take advantage of other people any more!” She even shook her fist at the TV Box. That made me giggle.

Mama and Papa talked about the fact that humans are influenced by what they see in front of them. They said that by us keeping the world news on during the evening we are focusing our attention bad things, things that make us unhappy. The more we watch and comment, the worse we feel. Papa said that rather than be angry as we watch the news we should turn our attention to better things. Better media makes us beautiful people is what he said. I think that was exactly the moment when Banjo whispered something about maybe Mama should watch more of the cooking channel. (I giggled again. I like it when Banjo teases Mama!)

I think we made a good choice that night. No more watching and hearing about everything that is going wrong with the world. From now on we are only going to pay attention to things that make us feel good.

Hugs, kisses & spaghetti,    Molly Kite (and Faith)

Operation Santa

The holidays are here and it’s a special time at my house. Nana Whacky is baking her famous “Nut Puffs” which look like happy little snowballs, Banjo is learning to play the, uh, the banjo-he is practicing the jingle bells song, and Mama and Papa are off delivering meals to our neighbors. I feel very fortunate!

Many needy children do not have the same good luck as I do. Thankfully many children believe in the goodness and charity of the Christmas season that does not come in the form of gifts. Their “Dear Santa” letters arrive by the thousands in every Post Office in the United States.

Each year kind hearted people bring Operation Santa Claus to life by answering “Dear Santa” letters from needy children who would otherwise have no Christmas at all.
