You're God's masterpiece!

Kari always used to be excited about Grandma's visits. She would eagerly gather up her best dolls and favorite books, arrange them just so, and wait for the magical moment when Grandma would join her in the land of make-believe.

But this time, Kari wasn't happy about Grandma coming. Mom was surprised, especially when Kari started saying things that were not so nice about her two-year-old cousin, Michelle. Tears came to Kari's eyes, and she whispered a very sad secret. She was afraid that Michelle had taken her place and that Kari wouldn't be special to anyone anymore. Grandma arrived before Mom could talk to Kari about her feelings. Sadly, Kari told Grandma that her dolls had all run away.

Grandma took her gently into her arms. She said that if there weren't any dolls around today, maybe she and Kari could go to the art museum together. Kari found a little smile, and out the door they went.
