Whenever I think if Dr. Suess I am reminded of my husband's grandparents. That's right, his grandparents. Not a baby, or a toddler, or a young child, but my husband's eighty-year-old grandparents. They have been married for fifty-five years and they have one of the deepest and most loving relationships I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing.
So why am I reminded of them each time I think of Dr. Seuss? This is why (my cousin-in-law wrote about it in her blog Simple Life Love):
One night she and her husband (who is my husband's cousin) read Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are, which had previously belonged to my husband's grandparents. At the front of the book, was the following inscription:
Is that not the cutest? Especially if you knew this sweet man and the love he has for his adoring wife.
The brilliant Dr. Suess has the ablility to put into words exactly how we are feeling. Such as:
Pied Piper on Etsy allows you to buy a variety of Dr. Suess' wonderful quotes in print form (to hang in most any room of your house). Pied Piper on Etsy is where the magic of life is captured in art form! Art press-prints, cards, and photographer resources that are unique and the envy of all!
