My dearest Zoe,

Are you getting excited?

It wasn't a very windy March, it came in and went out like
a lamb, but that's okay, March is past, I just hope that this
Friday is breezy. It's time for this year's Good Friday kite
flying, and I hope that you have your kite ready!

Mine is ready, but the big excitement for me this year will
be in helping some children build their first kites (I'll
be helping their parents build kites, too!). That will be
a lot of fun, as much fun as when I taught you how to
build your first kite, and as much as when your Mom and I
built and flew our first kites with your Grandpa.

There is always fun in sharing, and we've been sharing our
kite flying tradition for many years. The fun is also in seeing
the kites lift their way into the sky. There are so many hopes
that rise along with the kite. Of course, we hope that the
kite will fly and that the string won't break. But we can
hope for so many other things, and then send those dreams
skyward on our little floaters. Each kite becomes a little
prayer as it swims in the air, and how could God not listen to
such pretty little prayers?

My prayer this year will be that by next, we will again
be able to send our kites into the clouds together. But
until then, I'll just have to send you my love.

Just sailing along,

your Uncle Roy
