Mary's Lil Legacies

Sweet Kelsey - so wise for her 15 years.... so beautiful like her mommy! She has a compassion for people, maybe because she understands life adversities already. She has overcome so much in the loss of her mom. It took her some time, but she Believes now, that her mom is never far. She is with her as she sleeps and watches her throughout the day ~ even flies a cardinal to her side on special days. Kelsey is seeing coincidences now as synchronicities. She calls them cowinkiedinks - hehe! She met a boy at church the other night who's mom passed away on the exact same day as hers. They both had dreams of their mom with the same exact context (where they had to allow their moms to go on to Heaven instead of lingering in the spirit plane directly above them), both of them have Aunts who had a significant dream of their mom's and lastly, the passing of both their mom's was similar in a certain involvement. She couldn't believe her ears when she met this boy and couldn't wait to tell me! My sweet niece' eyes are open and her heart is allowing her to see the miracles life has to offer!

My handsome little Prince Brett, always saying the funniest little things ~ things that make me smile straight from the heart. If you could buy a shot of love - he is it! I'll get a random text or phone call from him saying "I just wanted to say I love you Aunt Jeni - that's it" & "I miss you". These words tug so hard at my heart. I'm so grateful to have him in my life. I tell Brett he has to take care of me and Uncle Chad when we get super duper old, since we don't have kids. He say's "Of course Aunt Jeni - duh". hehe I love to spoil him as much as I can. I'll ask him randomly, "Hey Brett, want a new XBox game" - he says, "Whats this for?" - I say, "Just cuz I love you", he says, "Well, ummmmm, I don't want to take advantage of you but Mortal Kombat is how you spell it"..... hehehe! He has a funny little lingo he's made up with his friends and even has signature symbols like =3= or ~WIAN~
In my letter to Mary the day she died I promised to love her kids as if they were my own. Amazingly, with each day that has gone my love for them grows more and more. I didn't know that was possible. Their Grandma Jojo is an angel on earth and gives them the stability, love and direction they need in life. I am forever grateful for her and try to let her know as much as possible. She's the one who sent these wonderful pictures to me for Christmas this year. She loves these kids as if they were her own. Jojo the Grandma angel ~ sounds about right!

Aww... this is beautiful. I remember seeing these pics on FB. I can't believe how grown up they look. Precious, precious... just like their mom!
