She Named Me Mama

"Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.”  - William Makepeace Thackeray
I am so grateful that I was able to hear and record Ella saying my name, prefacing each “mama” with her sweet squeals.  She named me Mama, and I don't think I've ever heard a sweeter sound than that.  I stood watch over her for more than eight months.  She's been gone for a year now, and every day I'm counting on her to stand watch over me until we can be together again, until I can hold her in my arms again and forever be rid of the ache caused by her absence.
St. Ella, pray for us!

I remember this video... it made me smile and cry the first time you posted it... and apparently it still works the same way! Love you Baby Ella... you were and are a total doll!
