One of my favorite families to be around…they truly enjoy each other’s company. Thanks for calling me…love getting to see everyone when they’re in town.
Mama called me to come take some pictures because one of her little birds was about to fly away…to JAPAN. I’m so impressed and in awe…she’s headed there to teach English. Bless you…I can barely talk real good with my own english and I certainly can’t even imagine tangling my mush-brain with a complicated language like japanese.
Just before I arrived to see this crew…two of them had been to the Rescue Release of a couple of sea turtles at Isle of Palms. What makes that experience even cooler…they had visited the same turtles at the hospital in the South Carolina Aquarium the day before. That’s pretty awesome. Enjoyed my morning with you…I’m sure I was slightly less entertaining than a sea turtle.
At first, I thought it inappropriate to share this on here…a public forum for my own promotion. But I was so moved by a request from a little girl’s uncle…during her eulogy.
Once upon a time…there was the bravest, most innocent little girl who defied all odds. She wasn’t supposed to live 2 minutes, 2 hours or 2 weeks…but she had a 15-year purpose. For one who could never walk or talk – she shared more love amongst the masses. That is what her uncle asked of the congregation. In a world of worry, money and hatred…share the love that she once did. Most of us are fully capable of speech…make a conscious decision to speak words of love.
Truly her colors were blush and bashful. Every celebration for her was covered in pink. Notice the color of the lichen on the oak tree branch. It’s just above where she was laid to rest…in a beautiful casket hand-made by her other uncle. Perfect. Rest in peace, sweet girl. I hope that diamond ring sparkles even more in heaven.
