One Word Essays

We received an emailed titled “One Word Essays” from a couple of different people this last month.  It was a GREAT email with single words attached to single pictures that told an amazing story.  I decided I would take these same words and put together Wylder’s version with mostly unseen photos..  LOVE.

  1. Oh, how I enjoyed this, Shannon!!! You captioned just the most perfect words for each Warrior pic….and those Wylder/Maddie pics always turn me to mush! A boy and his dog share such a special bond, and all of your pics with them together really capture the bond and love they had for each other. xoxoxoxox

    • Mommy and Daddy says:

      They certainly do share such a love, don’t they? I love to look through his pictures, they make me smile. Wylder has hundreds that would go with each word and so many other awe-inspiring words. So proud, we are so proud. xoxo

  2. oh Shannon, this was breathtaking. My favorites were True love, Adventure, and Lonliness.

    He is just perfect and lived such a beautiful life full of amazing one word essays. We love you guys. xoxo ,Chelsea

    • Mommy and Daddy says:

      True love was a picture from our first Christmas together. Adventure was on the plane to Hawaii just after Wylder’s 1st Birthday. And you know Lonliness. Love you guys too. xoxo

  3. Such beautiful pictures and amazing memories!

    • Mommy and Daddy says:

      They really are Jill … we cherish every picture, every memory … as you know all to well. xoxo

  4. Cathy Johnson says:

    Breathtaking is exactly the word I was thinking of! Thank you SO much for sharing these precious moments, Shannon. Seeing that impish little face always makes my day sunnier! xoxoxo

    • Mommy and Daddy says:

      We are so glad to share the picts Cathy. Thank you for continuing to show your love and support. Those sweet cheeks and big brown eyes make every day sunnier. xoxo

  5. Oh wow Shannon. These are all such great photos, thank you for sharing them. But that one of you and Steven in Maui. Wow. I actually had to close out the browser and take a breath – the emotion is literally palpable, and it is so hard to bear. Thank you for choosing to share that with us – it’s one everyone should see, and hopefully one no one should ever feel.

    xoxo, Eileen

    • Mommy and Daddy says:

      I know Eileen. If I close my eyes and put myself back in that moment, you are right … it is just to hard to bear and a moment “everyone should see but no parent should ever bear”. In my opinion this is the only photo I have that truly captures the heartache. Thanks for all your love and support always. Hugs to little Quinn and the boys xoxo
