This new design with the angel and butterflies is as always dedicated to my angel, Luijoe , always by my side, a whisper of an angel:

“You never need let go,
Hold me, mommy, close within”
Though the pain and sorrow flow,
One day we shall reunite
Angels whisper words of grace,
And I promise I will hold you
In another time and place.

Even if L thinks it’s such a cheesy design, it holds so much meaning because it is so true… we are all touched by our angels.
