A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam.

For a brief moment it's glory and beauty belong to our world.

But then it flies on again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky just to have seen it.

Thanksgiving Weekend, 2010. Karis was teaching Nalah how to enjoy pumpkin pie. The two got very silly together....Nalah always closed her eyes and savoured the moment whenever something made her very happy. Typically she would do this outside, in the sun, wind, or if she enjoyed the sights or smells around her. Nalah was a foodie at heart I think, even though she was tube fed. Nalah was blissful this moment playing with whip cream, and she also was very content making chocolate chip cookies with her Momma. Even though our children do not speak verbally, they can communicate preferences, likes and dislikes. Pumpkin pie with whip cream was a 'like'. I also love seeing my girls play together, those were the most precious moments and the love they share is beautiful. Nalah eye's would light up whenever Karis entered the room. She followed Karis with her eyes, and Karis would tirelessly entertain her little sister. They played together beautifully, despite very different abilities. I will always be proud of Karis for being such a good big Sister to her little Sis with special needs.
