I am glad you feel safe enough to share your real self here. I am also glad that you have someone little who is able to listen to the angels, follow where they lead, and gently raise you up enough to read stories while being completely loved.

Hoping you find peace and love always.

I love everything you share with us. Pure thoughts from your heart. Sacred sharings.
I am so sweet you have your family near with sweet little love to bring so much joy and another beautiful blessing on the way. Children bring us joy and help us smile and have courage and energy and hope for brighter tomorrows. Children are God's way of saying the world will continue.
Thank you always Corey for everything you share with us.
I love you

Bless that little Gabriel for bringing you into a happy place and lightening the world! Jennifer

Children can be so perceptive. With love in his heart he drew you to another place by reading his story books. That is love…

Sending you love, friend. God bless you and your sweet Gabriel.

Dear sweet child. There's nothing like a good book...

Sending love by the bushel full. And as usual you hit the nail on the head describing life these days. Peace and grace xoxo

I love this post. Your words ring so true. Children seem to know how to pull us back to a happier place when we need it. Thank you for your beautiful words and photos.

These past years of covid, illness, and death have been so difficult for many people. Corey, you have had sad times in your extended family with sicknesses and death which weary the spirit. As others have mentioned, there is an angel living with your family - dear Gabriel who is so aptly named.

Thinking of you all

Thank you for sharing your heart and the small act of Gabriel helping you connect to the eternal - I too have been feeling like laundry flapping in the breeze and following Gabriel's simple guidance I've pulled off the shelf some of my children's books. Reading them has taken me from a sense of foreboding to joy full of memories and the giggles that some of these stories bring on...

I was without wifi for awhile, only moments of connection with the internet.

I am catching up, reading this post, and nodding my head.

As Penni and Jeanne said, and the friends commenting after, please share your heart with us, the joy and the beauty, the encouragement, as well as the heavy things and the uncertainty.

I'm thankful for moments of grace. But in the waiting, when it really does feel difficult, and things seem uncertain, I remember the verse: "We have this Hope as an anchor for our soul." My faith keeps me grounded, helps me to find my footing, a rock to stand on. And peace.

I am thankful for your posts. Sending love.

Little ones have a way of putting things into perspective.
I am so happy you have him in your life.
