Evening nap.


Ruby's origin is often speculated on.

How could a heart be so tender? What gracious god could have made a fountain of a girl, and brought her to me? She sat there, begging to hold the sleeping little monster. Finally able to manipulate Lillie's fingers and rest them in her hand.

There's a hundred reasons to collapse when Ruby speaks, but I'll let you in on just one:

"Daddy if you died I would melt into a puddle of tears and just be a wet puddle on the ground".

yeah, I have to say the same as lisa. This photo certainly formed a lump in my throat. Her face, the hands, it all just about did me in.

Wow, how emotional and I'm sure you wanted to be a puddle of tears when you heard her say that too.
