Four Little Bubble Blowers

We had play group yesterday with some of our neighborhood friends. Look at my Sweet V. My dark haired beauty among all those blond boys.

Vienne's been having a hard time the last few days of school. I've had to leave her while she cries. It really goes against every thing I know as a Mom. When my children cry, I run to them. It's so hard to walk the other way. I felt like I had an angel today, though. A grandmother was dropping her granddaughter off and noticed that I was teary eyed. She came to me with the most heart felt hug and said the sweetest prayer over my shoulder. I can barely remember the words but I do remember "give her strength." It stayed with me all day. To you my angel out there, thank you.

Oh you sweet sweet little Mommy...that brought tears to my eyes...I truely believe in angels...PLEASE call me if you're having a bad day, not sure if I know the right thing to say but sometimes it helps to talk, I'm always a phone call away for one of my favorite girlfriends!!

wow. what a special person. now you just have to "pay it forward." it will get easier and you are giving your sweet little girl the gift of friends, independence and the security in knowing that you always come back.

What an uplifting moment. I believe in angels. I hope Vienne feels more and more comfortable at school in the days to come! And I really like your picture. So sweet.

What they said!

How amazing to have someone feel comfortable enough to spontaneously pray for you like that. I had never known that before I started working in the independent Christian school system here.

I was so lucky with the BA...she never looked back at me :-) *sigh*

Its true though, if you are confident in leaving her she will pick up on that and gain confidence through the knowledge that you will be back and she is free to enjoy herself. (hope that made sense)

Tears here, too. I thank God for the angels who walk among us.

V is a little beauty and that's a cute shot. One day she'll be turning the heads of those blond-headed boys. :)
