One Deep Breath-The Faces of Humanity

Cherished young life
experiences unfold
promise to fulfill

I had an unexpected opportunity to visit with my friend Cara today (you can read more about Cara here) and was reminded once again what a bright light she shines into the lives of her family and friends.

glad to see you are enjoying your "final days" (don't anyone feel too sorry...she's just going back to school...not anywhere nearly as blissful as Heaven yet!)xo

What a gorgeous face!! And such a touching story and haiku to go with it. Cara means friend in Irish, I think.

Trouble posting comments today--uggh!

Beautiful haiku for a beautiful girl. I recognized her immediately from the picture you posted earlier this summer. So much promise in those eyes.

What a unlifting story. Being the mom to an adopted daughter, this really hit me. I too, have always wanted the birth mom to know her child was doing well.
Sounds like Cara is having a great life. Thanks so much for sharing your haiku and story.
