Letting Go.....

We all hold on to things, ideas, People... that we want to protect. I know there are so many things that I keep a grasp on that I keep so close to me that I just can't seem to figure a way to loosen my grip on. Maybe it is because of some of the things that have happened to me? losing my father the way I did, Maybe because of illness? growing up with very little, other things that have happened to me over the years who knows? I am not sure, but, I know I hold people, and some things so close, and so tight, it is so hard to loosen my grasp, its like that precious butterfly. You have to be so careful or it will never fly... I know with my child I walk that fine line.
This is what this layout is about I took this photo on her first day of school this year I think maybe you can see some of the many feelings in my heart.

John and I so desperatly wanted to have a child and were so blessed with this little girl.
Not a day goes by we are not thankful for her. I truly am so humbly grateful for her.
Watching her grow every day and enjoying her is such a blessing we cherish and are truly so thankful.
It is just so hard to let her go into this cruel evil world especially thinking of the anniversary of yesterdays evil events. When I look at this sweet beautiful innocent child and releasing her into that...

as always you can click on the images to see them larger.

Oh Nancy, that's a beautiful layout... Not just the design but the sentiment behind it. Love how you did the journaling.
