Orphans of Sainte Cécile (little extracts) and thoughts


15th February 1940
Solange and her sister are really nice. We all get on well at the orphanage. Their beds are beside mine in the dormitory.



15th April 1940
Dad, I miss you. Things have changed a little here and Mademoiselle Rochefort seems agitated. I know she is trying to hide something. Yesterday, I was very upset because she scribbled in a rush on a page of my journal and tore the page.


I have finished to write the story . Next I am translating and then, hopefully, it shouldn't be too long before I can hold the little book in my hands.


Meanwhile, all the events occuring in the world just remind me that every day counts.
Even when something difficult hits you, just try to focus on the positive side of things.

Easy to say but...I have been there.

If I hadn't done that, I wouldn't be blogging, I wouldn't be creating , I wouldn't know you.

Great! ... On en sait un peu plus, mais quel suspense!... Je veux la suite, mais pas tout d'un coup pour que le plaisir dure plus longtemps.
ainsi on peut imaginer plein de choses.
Je suis comme toi il faut toujours voir le positif dans la vie, même si parfois ce n'est pas facile.

Love to see you smiling behind your sewing machine- wish I was sitting across from you making minis while you made new dolls :) I love the new entries...I wonder why Mademoiselle Rochefort seems agitated? I am also glad that I know you--you are one of my wonderful friends that can make a bad day seem better as if by magic. xxxxxxxooooooo!!!!!!!

I love the sentiment behind Carpe Diem! But it always makes me smile a little because Carp in English is a type of fish...

Fish Day!!!

Patrica, I am so happy we are friends! You have brought much light into my dark days and every time I visit you here, I feel a bit of sunshine! I love the picture of you behind your sewing machine and all of the little stories you have to tell. What a joy it will be when you can hold your own little book in your hands.
Sending you all the best wishes!
