Tiny Gifts

I was thinking yesterday that I could not recall a picture of EWO laughing.

She has a wonderful sense of humor. Wicked, childlike, quick.

All the pictures that have been taken of her over the years have been of her posing. Self conscious and reserved.

This morning I opened my email to find a letter from her brother in Holland. It was filled with encouragement and support...

and he had attached two pictures.

One. Was of EWO laughing.



It touched me.

This morning I was thinking 'how the hell do we do it' with all our black past, you,me,Laoch... I am amazed at our strength. Strength to face a parent who wasn't,and to take care of them. I don't get it....

Thanks, Laoch :)

Jadey: I choose to think of it as a victory. We are compassionate, caring people despite their lack. We faced the darkness and remained unchanged to who we are deep inside. (hugsss)
