This weekend was a different kind of weekend. I’m exhausted in the best way possible.
Former Kidd’s Kid, Gracie Jennings and her mom Jamie have talked about coming to see me in Dallas and this weekend was best for us both. I wanted to give them a mini-vacation here and spend some time with them because I genuinely feel like they are family to me.
Jamie is a single mom, adopted Gracie from China after Gracie was abandoned in a park. Gracie also has a rather substantial heart condition. Sometimes she equates it to having half a heart. In reality, she has the biggest heart I’ve ever seen. Sappy, I know. I mean it though. Gracie and I really bonded on the trip to Disney World last fall, mostly over our tomboyish ways and our love for animals. We always send each other pictures of our dogs, etc. So, I managed to set up a backstage tour of sorts for us at the Ft. Worth Zoo.
