it seemed so hopeless and hard to see the light walking in the darkness having lost sight blind to any likely hope focus only on despair not seeing some DO care that love is everywhere one may just not be aware yet… misery is tormenting sometimes but still … temporary… suicide is tragic every time yet still … permanent! somehow we must try harder somehow we must speak louder somehow we must hear better somehow we must help further somehow we must never stop trying, reaching, talking, listening and above all caring.

Let me tell you a little story that comes from the heart of your Maman and Papa.
Once upon a long long time ago there was a princess in Canada and far far far away there was a prince in St- Lucia. Well, the prince searched and searched for his princess on his itsy bitsy isle in the Caribbean. So off he sailed to the colder side of the world…even the cold was worth it if he could find his forever loving princess.
Hey, wait! I already blogged about this! Okay so
Emma, if you want to learn more about life BEFORE you were fabricated (conceived…gross for a daughter to even fathom)
Emma, Emma, what are you doing? You are anxiously awaited by so many people but especially by your Maman and Papa. Maman has loved you before even feeling your little jumps and twirls in her tummy.
Yep, and Papa has been singing and talking to you so you could recognize his voice when you finally come into this world.
Maman has felt you knocking on that door to come out many many times and it appears it is either stuck or you have decided to stay in the warmth and safety of this home…Maman’s womb…well, I can’t say that I blame you. You get fed with no effort on your part, you get to float in the warm waters of this home and you are safe…but there isn’t that much room, sweetie…so time to meet your parents now.
You have Grand-Maman and Grand-Papa Savard who are so anxious to hold you too and take you for stroller rides.
Maman has a soul sister who will be your auntie…boy oh boy, how she can’t wait to hold you in her arms!
You have sooooooo many aunties, uncles, cousins and close friends who will also become your aunties and uncles just counting the days until they hear the news of Emma’s arrival.
Oh, and even Grand-Maman Camille who could not travel from the isle of St-Lucia to see your maman and papa make their vows of love…she has moved mountains (well small ones because they can be just so big on that teeny isle)…and she too will be here to see you when you enter this world.
So, Emma, it is time to leave that little bubble and enter this world of love, affection and compassion. Trust me, Emma, you will, by no means, lack love and attention…dearest, sweetest Emma…Maman t’attend hâtivement…tes parents attendent avec enthousiasmes afin de te chanter des petites berceuses…et des tendres refrains d’amour. Parce-que tu sais, Emma, tes parents sont des grand amateurs et amants de musique. Tant qu’il y a de la musique et de l’amour dans ta vie, chère Emma, il y a de la vie éternelle remplis de bonheur car le cœur chante aussi…ton cœur chantonnera au premier soupire dans ce monde.
Welcome – Bienvenue to this wonderful life, Emma!
Having you here will make this world so much better:)
How many times do we misjudge ourselves, do not describe ourselves fully, correctly? Do we actually use our own description or those words from others growing up…from friends who were not real friends…Watch this by clicking on the link below. It is heartwarming and if you are like me, you will shed a tear or two…so get the tissue ready too. But today, on this lovely sunny day, this video is about happy tears…those are sweet tasting:) Enjoy…
