-Mommy do you like rainbows because they remind you of Hadley?
-Yes honey, I do.
-Because when it rains on us she fills up her hands with colors and throws them all the way down?
-You know what? I think that is exactly what she does.
-Me too, Mommy.

Rain is always temporary, there always comes the sun! And of course, don’t forget about the rainbows!

I like rainbows too, for much the same reasons. 🙂
I love that she put words to the love.
Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. How do they do that? How do our children understand the world so clearly in ways we grown ups can’t even grasp half the time? Thanks for sharing that moment – I feel honored to see that bittersweet beauty.
I wonder the same, she always seems so sure of her sister’s presence in our lives and I would love to borrow a little bit of her sure-ness. I wish I could feel a little of their closeness.
Yes, exactly, of course she does. Love.
Our twins are always spotting rainbows in the most random places. I love that they think rainbows are sent from their siblings who are no longer physically with us. Beautiful post. Sending you hope and hugs.

So beautiful, Jessica. I love posted conversations with our kids. They are to special not to share. I’m glad you shared yours 🙂
I’ve been thinking that a lot lately, that I don’t write enough of their words down. I need to do it more often, whether I blog it or not, just to have them.

Well, isn’t that a lovely thought.
Isn’t it? I love that she thinks this way, I would love to be in her little head and understand the closeness she has to her sister.
Their heart always shines through their imagination. So touching. Love.
This kind of stole my breath away. Beautiful.
Mine too :).
Aww.. that’s so sweet! 🙂
