Capture Your Grief- Day 10: Symbol

Day 10: Symbol for your child

Shortly after Ellie died, we notice that the sunsets and sunrises were suddenly very pink and purple. Maybe it was just the season, or maybe they'd been like that all along. I don't know... I think it's Ellie. We tell the kids that those pretty colors in the sky are Ellie's paintings and that those paintings are her way of saying that she's still with us. That she loves us.
So many people tell us that when they see a beautiful pink and purple sunset or sunrise, they think of Ellie. We often get pictures from people of Ellie's paintings. We LOVE that!

Here is a beautiful painting Ellie did for us yesterday. (Ellie knew I was going to be writing about her paintings so she did a great one for me to share!)

I've never met you or your family but every time I see a sky filled with pink and purple, I think of your beautiful girl!
