Some how, Some Way

Early today Marley was fussing.  I brought her into her bedroom and tried distracting here with the items on her dresser.  As so often happens, her attention was directed towards the two pictures of Ryan that I have set out on her shelf.   The minute her eyes locked on the picture, her crying ceased and she said, “Hi” in her Marley sing-song voice.  This was incredible, but what happened next absolutely floored me.  After a minute of staring, she smiled and softly cooed, “Daddy”.  At the most, you likely believe I’m making this up and at the least exaggerating, but I am telling the story exactly as it happened.  Somehow, some way, she knows who her daddy is.  Somehow, some way, his face calms her.


  1. What an incredible moment for you! Lots of love!

  2. Ryan is always with Marley. Whether you believe in angels, heaven or whatever.....She is a part of him and he is a part of her.

  3. some of your previous entries have made me emotional, but this one instantly brought me to tears. what an amazing moment.
