For Michaella

Yesterday we spent the first part of the day in Hudson honoring the daughter of a friend of Dave's who passed away almost four years ago. For the last few years the family has held a high heel dash and walk in her honor, and while we've always wanted to attend we had not been able to do so until this year.

After the high heel dash and the walk we returned to Hudson High for the final part of the day- the balloon release. Between the speech her father gave, the sight of everyone with their balloons, and the song that played while the balloons ascended, I found myself absolutely reduced to tears. Although I had not had the honor to meet this young woman, as a mama my heart absolutely aches for this family and the hole left in their hearts as a result of Michaella's sudden passing.

We stayed until we could no longer see the balloons and then made our way quietly back to the car. We shall carry the day and that moment in our hearts forever and we look forward to participating in this tribute for years to come. xo
