Pure joy

the girlies-9
Pure joy...look at those faces, those smiles, the love just oozes out of the photo.
What a wonderful moment with my girls, my sister was able to capture.
Zoe's second angelversary is less than a month away and I've been trying to think of something to do that will truly honor her memory.
I think this picture sums it up.
There doesn't need to be a grand gesture; Zoe wasn't one to make grand gestures.
We simply need to live joyfully, love deeply, and laugh a lot.
Treat every day as a precious gift.
Don't let the worries of life make you miss moments like the one captured above.
Quite simply, as my husband has always told me, if we live each day the way Zoe lived each of hers, then we will truly be honoring her life and her memory.
(I just need some reminders every now and again. Thanks Aunt No-No for this precious picture.)
