One Moment By Jessica There is one moment from the Walk that I have to share because I can’t stop thinking about it. As we were leaving the walk, one of the organizers handed the kids three balloons, two pink, one blue. I tied the blue one onto the stroller and McKenna and her cousin carried the pink. And even though they held on tight... one floated away... We went home with our two, one pink and one blue, and another little girl got her pink balloon after all.

Okay, my heart did a flip-flop. So touching. So glad your girl got her balloon. 🙂
I need a tissue. Seriously.
Even angels deserve balloons… thank you so much for sharing.

So perfect in its bittersweet simplicity. I loved this.
I’m glad I saw this @ TRDC. I’ve sort of seen you in passing on Twitter, have always meant to drop in here, but never did until today. Nice to “meet” you!
Great to meet you too, stopped by your blog and it looks like you had lots of kids close in age too. You will have to explain to me how to survive. 🙂
How beautifully sad.

I love your words so very much. You tell your story perfectly. XO
So beautiful, thank you for sharing. Lots of hugs…and I’m not really a “hugs-type” person 🙂
Oh, Jessica! This gave me such chills! It’s no accident that one pink balloon floated away.

Jessica, so happy she was there with you, and that she got her balloon! Precious.
Whenever we walk I feel her closeness and this moment just showed it even more.

I love this!! It makes me happy and sad all at the same time.
I guess when a little girl wants her balloon, she finds a way to get it. 🙂
I agree, on the way home my daughter was pouting about it being gone and my son said that it went to Hadley. They just know.
Denelle @CaitsConcepts says
Aww! That’s possibly the most amazing thing I have ever “heard” from a child’s lips..it’s so great that they are that aware. <3

Love those unexpected moments that just stick with you. This one will stick with me.
Me too. 🙂
I’m crying too. But I’m glad she got her balloon. After everything else, it feels right.
I’m crying my eyes out.
Oh no, don’t cry your eyes out. As much as I want her to be here, since she is not, these moments are the ones I wait for and hang on to. I love to feel like she is close and watching over us.
Kelly K @ Dances with Chaos says
She will always be with you. I’m glad she got her balloon.
I love the way you told this.
Many hugs, my friend.
Thanks Kelly, I’m glad she got her balloon too. Just like sisters to make sure they each get was they deserve. 🙂

VEry sweet and the photos are precious. Looks like the pink balloon was being pulled straight up to heaven.
I have no doubt it was. Alway love to get little “signs” from her.
Oh my goodness. That is so sweet.
Hugs and smiles, and yes…my share of tears too. How beautiful…that little balloon sailing heavenward.
What a lovely moment and image to hold onto.

Sorry for the tears but yes, it was a beautiful moment.
I love that you told us about this moment. I’m sure she was right there with all of you. 🙂
What a beautiful moment. Hugs to you and your family.
i am in love with this moment because she was there.
I know that I say this all the time, but I love this post. You have such a simple and honest way of potraying emotions that is simply amazing to read.
I love this post!
Nicole @MTDLBlog says
What a beautiful thought. No doubt she was with you on your walk. Hugs Mama!
She always seems so “close” on the days surrounding the walk… very comforting. Thanks for the hugs.
Sobs. I love you.
So I cry happy tears on your blog and you cry sad ones on mine. Sorry, I\’ll try to be funny and make it up to you soon.
