Haiku My Heart - Flight

abigail'salbum1

(art journal page from 2007)

Your wings just grew in.

Life has cleared you for take-off.

Fly, Gorgeous Girl, fly.

Jessie, High School Prom, June 2008

I don’t always gush about my niece Jessica on the blog, though I adore her, think she is brilliant and beautiful, funny and capable of anything she sets her mind to. Jessie is a private person and doesn’t really like me to put her photos out on the internet very much.

But I am making an exception today because I found out yesterday that my gorgeous 19 year old niece is striking out on an adventure. She has made the plan, arranged the details and even decided to leave a really nice guy behind because she knows it is her time to fly.

I am so proud of her I could burst.

And Jess’s courage and strength has inspired me to blow the dust off my own beautiful wings and spread them a bit wider, and maybe think about my own flight plan a little more…

Putting love and wind beneath your wings and praying for clear skies for your flight, My Beautiful Girl.

I love you.

What a beautiful young woman - how lucky that she has you as an auntie! I'm sure she would love the haiku as it comes directly from your heart.

What a "blessing" for your niece, in the most spiritual sense of the word. Your love helps give her wings, I'm certain.
