Today, Ruby arrived safely earthside.
Rachel came to me before her session and wanted to be sure we told her story accurately, emotionally and carefully by highlighting the blessing that her sweet husband, Ben, has been in her and her daughter Luci’s, life.
You see, it used to just be Rachel + Luci up against the world. It was as if every which way Rachel turned, she felt lost at sea in the middle of a great, big, all-encompassing storm.
That was until Ben came along.
Ben scooped her and Luci up from their path and claimed them as his own. Rachel expressed to me that he never looked back, only forward, always complimenting her with the utmost praises and pure, unconditional love— rain or shine.
So as we discussed the session, Rachel asked if it would be possible to incorporate an umbrella with some natural West Texas storm clouds to create the metaphor that is Ben, their very own shelter from the storm, and the newest blessing to come— in the form of a little sister, their very own Ruby.
Happy Birthday, sweet and beautiful girl. You are so deeply loved and cherished. Welcome, Ruby.
