a time to grow.

when emily lived with us it was a growing time.

she wasn't happy, mostly. not in some ways.

i feel like it was supposed to happen the way it happened, though. she was able to say some things that needed to be said and work through some things that needed to be worked-through.

i'm sure she has more of those discoveries ahead, just as we all do, but what she conquered while she was living here is sending her down a different, happier path.

all through it, there was mom.

behold my mother.

i love this next photo because i think it shows my mom just the way she is... she just loves her kids.

 emily has quite a cheer-section in mom alone.

i know that mom will be loving us until the end of time, doing everything she can behind the scenes to let us shine.
