I am definitely at a loss for words today.
Last night, sweet Bella earned her butterfly wings.
Please do 2 things for me today.
Hug your babies a bit closer, a bit longer tonight.

Visit Bella's blog.
Leave a prayer for Tim, Angelique, and big sister Ali.

O.K...three things.
Wear silly socks at least once a week.
And think of the girl that started the trend.
Fly, sweet Bella, fly.
"They say that time in heaven is compared to 'the blink of an eye'
for us on this earth. Sometimes it helps me to think of my child
running ahead of me through a beautiful field of wildflowers and
butterflies; so happy and completely caught up in what she is
doing that when she looks behind her, I'll already be there."

Ditto on Jane's comment. I had to compartmentalize today. I never had the chance to meet Bella and I don't know her family, but I've been keeping up with the blog for months now. It's hit me so much harder as a mom of an infant.

I'm so sad and going to sleep without an updated entry on Bella's blog, is just heart wrenching. I will cherish my memories with Bella and wear fabulous socks once a week, per your request!

Thank you for turning me on to their blogs months ago. Tim has taught me a few life lessons...well so has Bella!

HI Sara, This was really cute! I was able to sign up for the Walk this Sunday.. but I'm not sure what I should do now.. Can you email me some info on where to meet and everything else I need to do? Also, I saw something about checking in... if I'm not able to check in prior to Sunday will I be able to do it then??
Thank you so much!!!

I just saw your post on my blog! I almost asked "Is one of you Sara" because I always see your name on Bella's blog! I remember your name, because my name is Sara too. :)

It was nice to see you there today. Wasn't that amazing!!
