A Fancy Nancy Day for Hannah.

Over the years, I've gotten to know a lot about a little girl that I will never be able to meet.  I've learned much about Hannah, her love for all things sparkly, fruit salads from Bath and Body Works, the Crocs, the picture with the fanny panties hanging out, tangling with Othello the cat and losing, the squeaky voice, the dancing and her love to have some drawings in places that were not intended to be drawn on.  Today is the 5 year mark that Hannah passed away.  Not only is it the 5 year day, but it is also on THE day of the week and that, my friends, kind of makes Rachael sad.  The whole thing does and I don't blame her.  So as we throw up some prayers for her family, for this day, to celebrate a sparkly little girl, let's throw up some healing prayers for Rachael-- both physically (for her ankle having been bolted back together), but for her mentally.  Not the condition she signed up for.  (But thankful under the circumstances that this was a bum ankle that she goofed up when she was 16.) They normally like to hike to the Cascades somewhere around HHD.  Never fear!  She'll be fancy.  She'll be having tea parties and she will be dancing around in her chair.  (Don't get up, please.) 

Let's lift up this family and wear something sparkly just for Hannah.

Thoughts and prayers going out to Rachael and her family. I can't believe it's been 5 years.

This is lovely,Amy. Thank you. :). Thank you, too, Janeen. I find it hard to believe it's been five years as well. It seems like such a big number and yet, it was only yesterday it happened.
