One Year Ago Today...

One year ago today, Elissa Hadley lost her fight to cervical cancer and the world of everyone that ever spent time in her presence got smaller and colder. Later today I'll repost all of her music so that everyone who has not heard it finally has a chance and can share it with others. Also, I would like everyone to read this post and link to it, please - for my sweet little E.


Elissa Hadley, 1 April 1970-27 August 2006


I am better
I am braver
Yes
I am bird wings and birthday cake
Flying starlight clean again
I am flying starlight clean
I am
I am twinkly
Like a tree
At Christmas time
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you...

Life goes on, baby - you mourn the losses because they are plenty, and you celebrate the victories because they are few. Every time I see your name, your face, anything that reminds me of you at all - I have cause to celebrate that there is one more member to my family that celebrates my life and is available with all the love I need whenever I need it.

She did tremendous good in her short life, the least of which was bringing me to new lifelong friends. In death, she led me to you and to Monica. I choose to believe it is because she didn't think it was right for us to be without one another, especially since she had to go. She was magic, Pete. That I have you & Monica in my family now is just more proof of that.
