I haven't been myself lately, mornings are usually the worst. I try to take my mind off of things by sewing, sewing, sewing...but sometimes even making something pretty doesn't help. So we take walks (lots of walks) and look for beautiful flowers and butterflies (and sometimes snails) Watching her discover new things always makes me smile.
When we get to the big field by our house, Devon always spreads out her arms and screams "FLY!" then takes off running. She'll want me to "fly" with her, and I go through the motions...it's truly amazing to see her so happy and so free. More than anything, I'd love to really be able to share that moment with her...to spread my wings and fly.


  1. i agree that it is truly amazing being a mom and having the gift of watching your child learn and grow. i hope you start to feel like yourself again soon!

  2. This is a really sweet post, beautifully written. ♥

  3. Hi Emily, I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling your best lately. I'd love to give you a big hug if you're right beside me now. Let me try an E-hug instead, 'MmmmmmmMmmmmmm!!!' Did you feel that? :)

    It's good to see Devon so carefree and happy. Perhaps your Angel wants to remind you that there're still many good things in life to be happy about. Speak to your Angel, I'm sure she's right beside you, waiting to help. :) You may be interested to look up this book, 'How did I get here?' by Barbara de Angelis. It's a very motivational and inspiring book.

    May you find the peace within your heart/soul very soon.

    Love Always,
