Day Five — Something that comforted you as a child

The Velveteen Rabbit is a beautiful tale that must be read by children and adults, especially those among us who are on the verge of empty-nesting or are already there. The mid-life years, the phase in between creating a nest and emptying it is like a transition period from becoming parents to becoming real. You love until it hurts, you remain strong because you have children who depend on you, and so you cannot break.
