Ecclesiastes 3:4

"...there is a time to mourn and a time to dance...."
Ecclesiastes 3:4
And sometimes those times overlap.
 Just a couple of weeks after her daddy died...
 ...Gianna began her Ballet Classes! 
I have no words to express how absolutely ADORABLE these little 3 and 4 year olds are in their pink leotards and tights and teeny tiny ballet shoes. 
 She began classes at the Lake Charles Dance Academy which is a brand new studio open by a precious friend of mine.  We feel so grateful for this wonderful experience and welcomed diversion from our grief!
The studio is right by the cemetery where Iain is buried, so we go afterwards to show Daddy his little ballerina, have a chat with him and say some prayers.
It's becoming a nice little ritual for us.
I can say with great certainty that her Daddy is full of love and pride for his little dancer.
(I know her Mommy is.)


  1. Maria...this is amazing! :) I love y'all

  2. Very touching, as usual. You have such a beautiful spirit, and you're right, she is too stinking cute!!
