wish...

This afternoon we were enjoying a quiet moment in our back yard when Austin picked a wish berry blossom. He held it out to me and asked me to make a wish. My wish was instant...I want Timothy back! I couldn't believe how fast that thought came into my head. Luckily I didn't say it out loud and Austin went on to wish for a new transformer. Just seconds later Emma scooped up another wish berry blossom. I was very surprised by her wish, she didn't wish for a new toy or game. "I wish Timothy was with us..."


Just another "normal" day in the Currey household.

That is such a cute picture, and to the naked eye that's all it is, but to those who've read your post it means SO much more...it's a BEAUTIFUL and meaningful picture!

She was a beautiful princess today!

That's what I love about children...and I wonder just how many times you've thought that quietly to yourself only to hear one of your kids say it outloud just moments later. What a sweet wish. You'll never look at those wish berry blossoms the same again.

I love the pic Jen. Her innocense is refreshing. Her honesty rings true.

I guess it goes to show that Timothy won't ever be forgotten! I'll never look at a wish berry blossom the same again (I do love that name so much more than dandilion!!!!).
