Balloons for Bryanna

On Tuesday June 30th we decided to pick up some balloons for Bryanna. We took them down to the trails down by our house and released them for her. We figured if she was going to celebrate the day with God we were going to send some balloons her way for the party and to let her know we were thinking of her.

There they go!

Up up and Away!

After we released the balloons they all drifted farther away from us. They seemed to favor a little patch of clouds that I like to believe is where she was looking down on us from.

Releasing the balloons was very therapeutic for me, and after we released them I had a calm come over me. Almost as if for once I was at peace with what was going on. It was a very hard day though because it was as if it sunk in for good that she was truly gone but I know she is in a better place. I do miss my little angel though.

  1. Hi!

    I did this last year when my best friend - my Nan - passed away. We all tied private notes to our own personal balloon and then I said a little speech and we let them go. We all silently watched them drift away, all together in a bunch (they weren't even tied) they just stuck together)and it was very special and moving. I can understand your feeling. I bet your daughter loved her balloons. I know my Nan sure did! Her balloons were pink too :)
