A labor of love

Soon after Hailey arrived here this week she asked if we could go to the cemetery
so she could, of course, see her Mom's grave. She added,
"I hope we aren't in a hurry because I would like to spend extra time there."
I'm not sure if this had to do with the fact that yesterday marked 5 years since her Mom passed,
 but I don't think so. To a 9 year old girl, it's not about anniversary dates,
 it's just about feeling close to her Mom.

Hailey spent most of the week at Elora's house this time,
but I got to have the girls all of Tuesday.
Here is what these sweet girls wanted to do:

Yes, tears of remembrance, joy, and peace. Such darling girls!!
April 11th should be declared 'Red Lipstick Day' as Robin always looked great wearing the red.

They are two sweet girls and I love that they have such a close relationship.
It's also wonderful how often you get to have Hailey stay with you.

We usually get to have Hailey only about once or twice a year, but she's already been with us twice this year and it's only April. So yes, it's wonderful.

I love their friendship. And you must be so proud of them. They even make ME proud!
