Only one way...God.

 This post will be short and sweet... 

Today, Ian and I went to take some meals to Jalene's family and we decided to stop and frame a copy of a picture Rowan painted.  It was the one he drew and painted after he saw Jalene's angel floating above her bed, a week and a half ago.

Also today, this photo was posted by a friend of Jalene's family.  It shows Jalene one week before her headaches began, which eventually led to them discovering her brain cancer.

I know I mentioned this briefly in the original post, but, Rowan never, EVER, saw Jalene with hair.  He met her at the hospital not quite a year ago, on the hematology/oncology/transplant floor, in the art room, while they did art projects with the art therapist.  She was already undergoing treatment, so she had no hair at all at the time.

Now, look at these pictures side by side...

For a child to have never seen his friend like this, with her adorable, short little black haired bob... how on Earth did he draw her angel this way?  Only one way...God.

Be blessed everyone, and don't forget Jalene's Life Message:

"Love everybody the same."

"Smile at everybody, all the time, always, and they will smile back."

and finally...

"Shake of the bad stuff."
