Little Suzy Acorn
Little Suzy Acorn came about at a gathering of people who meet once a month, in order to support each other in living more joyful and fulfilling life. This group of people is called the “Natural Gifts Society”. They believe that when people realize and nurture their natural talents, and share them with the world, they live a more joyful and connected life, and the world benefits.
I attended a meeting for the first time, and was challenged to write children’s book. Not thinking I had ability to do that, I asked if I could write a children’s song instead. After the meeting, I picked up my guitar and thought about the analogy of acorn’s journey. Dave, one of the founders of the group spoke of the acorn and how it’s shell had to crack open in order for it to sprout and grow into a big, beautiful strong Oak tree. The same can work with people. We create a ‘shell’ to survive in the world, but in order to flourish, at some point, that shell needs to crack so our true beauty and growth can happen. Hence, Suzy Acorn was born, and song was written. I then realized that if I put the words to paper along with some pictures, TA DA! It was a children’s book!
I just so happened to know a wonderful artist, Suzanna Wright, who agreed to add her beautiful illustrations to the cause, and…behold! Suzy Acorn, the children’s book. Turns out I CAN write a children’s book. If I nurture my “Natural Gifts”, who knows what can be accomplished.
It is our hope that this book will inspire young children to know that when they have tough times, and life gets rough and they ‘crack’, that good things can come from these situations. Those are times when your true gifts can emerge! Every child can grow into a big, beautiful, strong tree!
