Tough Girl

We took an impromptu stroll through the Idaho Botanical Gardens this Sunday and found so many hidden treasures amongst the recently expanded trails. While exploring the new childrens' gardens we stumbled upon a curious display.

After poking around, we realized there was an inscription on the crayon.

The First Grader asked what it said. I read it. She wondered who Bri was. I explained that she was a little girl that had been sick and died. Way too young. Then we spotted this...

The First Grader immediately grabbed a pencil and paper and wrote Bri a note. It read:
"Because of your courage, you are special." Then she drew a picture of herself and an angel and hearts all around.


  1. That's flippin AWESOME. What an amazing monument to a life.

  2. oh my goodness! First Grader is a sweet, sweet little girl. So poignant.
