How I've Always Felt

Photo of Sloan and I fall of 2000



I found this beautifully written piece tonight while reading one of my favorite blogs, C Jane Enjoy It. I believe she is a super talented writer and the kind of girl that if you lived next door to one another, she would trade recipes and babysitting, let you gladly borrow a cup of sugar or a few eggs. If you were having a bad day she would give you a hug (like any good girlfriend neighbor would) and make you laugh with a funny story about something that happened yesterday in retro house. Although I don't know her personally, I am grateful she has the courage to follow her talents and dreams of writing. I am sure that I am not the only one who feels this way. 

Reading this article I couldn't help feeling a tug at my own heart strings. A reminder of how precious life truly is. How fleeting it can be, but in that sadness hope can prevail. And the belief that all of us, no matter who we are, have a reason and a purpose for coming to this earth. No matter what time that may be.

Thank you for sharing this with me. I've read stuff on Segullah before and it's always great. and touching. and spiritual. I cried through the whole post. It's such a tender amazing gift to be a mother.

And I'm glad to hear the church has no official stand on when the spirit enters the body. My babes had personality and spirit before they were born. That's for sure.

I love that picture of you and your baby.
