'If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present... gratefully.' -Maya Angelou
Remember that time that you, Covey, said you needed a band-aid. I came to check on you & found this- lots of band-aid wrappers, lots of blush & those tiny footprints leading right back to you.
Remember when you, Ella, climbed all over everything in site & left those little handprints behind.
Remember when we made a cake for your dad's birthday, & you, Ella, climbed up the chair your brother's left behind & got into one cake while I frosted the other.
Remember your Wonder-Woman costume, Ella, & the crown your brothers stuck behind the print on our bedroom wall.
Remember all those figurines all three of you kids liked to play with, & that one day I went for a water bottle, & found a little superhero.
Remember that one day I looked out at the wind & rain, & instead found one little monk upside-down, in another. I laughed, & knew it was you, Covey, & you laughed, & said 'that was me!'
