"Have you heard...
Have you heard.....?"
Not a good way to begin the day.
I cried when I heard the news this morning that Shirley Temple Black has passed away.
You cannot possibly even know how much I loved her.
For my entire life.
When I was a teenager, I had a poster of her hanging in my bedroom.
I am a middle-aged woman who can still listen to her sing all day and not get tired of it.
I own every single one of the movies she starred in as a child.
I can't say goodbye, the stubborn little girl that still lives inside of me simply will NOT do it.
Because she will always live on in my heart.
