You are a wise wee one, Emily. I sure am praying you go home soon and stay there awhile. Your smile melted my heart. Praise our Heavenly Father for the miracles He does for you every day.

Dear Emily,

Thank you for letting us know about your day. And thank you for letting us share your mortal journey.

I want you to know that I know Heavenly Father is real, too. Sometimes I am jealous of you because I believe that the veil has not fully closed around you and that you get to see the angels that help comfort you. Sometimes when you get old like me a person lets life cloud their feelings and we forget to listen with our hearts for the comfort Heavely Father sends us. Your hard journey has helped me remember to listen with my heart for the still small voice to guide me when it gets hard.

I also wanted to tell you that you have wonderful people for parents- but you knew that already. And you get to see your first Christmas tree pretty soon. Did you know that your mommy doesn't like to put lights on a tree, but that is ok, because your daddy loves her enough to do it for her. I think that your daddy and mommy love each other enough that they could move a mountain if they needed to. Their lives are also an example to me and help me remember that life can be happy and filled with love.

I am glad you passed your swallow test. Not passing tests is no fun. But I also know this, the biggest test you will ever have- this mortal life- you are passing with flying colors. You are an angel and are doing amazing work helping hearts heal even though you are little, your spirit is a giant and I am lucky that I get to know your family.

Next week is a holiday called Thanksgiving. It is a day that we take time to remember all the things Heavenly Father gave us and all the things we have learned. This year you are one of the blessings I am going to thank Him for and all the things I have learned from you will be on my list as well.

So Happy Thanksgiving, little one. And thank you for coming to earth to teach us.

Your friend,
Sandra

Your such an articulate little girl Emily. I loved reading your letter. I think you right, mommy is strong, but I'm sure she has her moments where fear creeps in, but she always turns to the Lord for her strength. She is a strong women because of that. You both are my heros. Congrats on getting the bottle back- that is a huge Victory! xoxoxox
