The Elephant


Monday August 15th,

     I woke up this morning and I felt a stillness around me.  I felt the beginning of a new day, the hope of a better tomorrow and peace knowing that God does love me.

     My angel Kailee has been gone for five days now.  I feel like I’m walking in a fog and some days it’s hard to see clearly.  Everywhere I look I see her face.

      Some Angel’s talk more than others.  My angel was a quiet angel.  She was like a cat and she loved to curl up in a ball underneath the window and tweet all of her friends.
She was always there.  Her presence grounded me and gave me a hope that there is so much goodness in the world.
After I was fully awake this morning, a grey stuffed elephant was staring back at me. This elephant is a symbol of my love for Kailee.  She loves elephants!  They were everywhere in her room, in her head and in her heart. Elephants make Kailee feel safe and happy.
Elephants form deep family bonds and live in tight groups.  The herd is led by the oldest and often largest female called a matriarch. When the calf is born,  it is raised and protected by the whole matriarchal herd.
Kailee has many elephants watching over her and protecting her.  The elephant signifies power and strength.
Although my angel weighs no more than 115 lbs her strength is like an elephant.
They say good things come in small packages and the strength from within far surpasses our strength from outside.
May the strength of the elephant take her to an unknown place, unfamiliar to her body but very close to her heart❤️
Love ,  Wing 2
