Jasmine's Wings

Today, Jasmine ate breakfast with her wings on. She had a 2 day sleepover and we celebrated our Christmas time together. Unfortunately, she was "under the weather" with asthma issues, but we got through it ok. We shopped at her favorite little store in Amherst, MA, to which we had been to only once this past summer. It made such an impression on her, that she requested to go there to choose her Christmas gifts. When we entered the store, Jasmine walked up to the store clerk and boldly announced, "We're back!" After choosing her gifts, we left to return home where she rested for the latter part of the day, her asthma getting the better of her. She loved her wings, and so do I. She wore them last night and this morning, taking them home with her when she left. I miss her when she is gone. Oddly, I took part in a round robin book swap with the 14 Secrets Yahoo Group a year or so ago, and my book was "Jasmine, the flower fairy". I took a photo of Jasmine and added wings to it for one of the pages, and ~ lo and behold, 2 years later, I have a serendipitous picture to add to the book's pages where an artist in the swap did not complete. There is a reason for everything. Blessings everyone.
