Oh, how I wish thatI could hear her sing........
One week from today I run with Shelby's Bells in honor and with hope for my little granddaughter Shelby.
The name Shelby's Bells was inspired by the old round, "White Coral Bells" :
White coral bells upon a slender stalk
Lillies of the valley deck my garden walk
Oh, don't you wish
That you could hear them ring
That will happen only when the fairies sing.
(or my line is that will happen ALWAYS when the angels sing)
Shelby LOVES flowers, and like the lillies of the valley, she does not speak, she does not sing.
Somehow, in spite of her lack of words, she does ring!
Perhaps with the help of the angels in Heaven and on earth, she will one day sing.
My run is my prayer for her.
I hope I make her proud :)
