Remember I mentioned a few posts back how I got my rainbow's shirts to wear for our walk to remember from a fellow BLM? Well they came in the mail yesterday. What do you think?
I LOVE THEM! They are better than I expected. I can't wait for all of us to be wearing our shirts. Ill be taking lots of pictures! Unfortunately I will not be posting pictures of my rainbows here because of privacy concerns but if you are my friend on facebook I will definitely be posting them there. If we are not friends on facebook yet, please feel free to find me and let me know you are a BLM. I will gladly add you.
Also speaking about mail, I had bought these little dragonflies for Genesis before she was born and after she died... well there was really no use for them. I kept one to put in her memory box but I had no idea what to do with the rest. That is until I met a fellow BLM, Kalialani, from The Butterfly Room on facebook. Here daughter Leila and Genesis have a lot of things in common including that dragonflies were her thing. So I decided to share Genesis' dragonflies with Leila's mommy and mail her one. Here is a pic of the one Genesis has:
And here is the one that we mailed to Leila and Kalialani. And can I say how honored and touched I am that Kalia took a picture of our girls dragonflies next to a picture of little Leila. Its just beautiful.
Im so glad that our girls brought us together. Its always nice to meet BLM...not because its nice what we have gone through, but its nice someone understands and we can offer support to each other. But then there are some BLM that you just connect with better than others. Though I have not known Kalialani or Leila long, I have a special place for them in my heart. I feel like we are family, she's like a sister to me. So I guess that makes me Leila's aunt lol :) And I just know that Leila and Genesis are bff's. And as a side note, Kalia so kindly allowed me to use her photo of Leila from her own blog. She likes to share her story and Leila's memory with as many people as possible.
