She Came to My Cradle

Model: Tia

O, I believe
Fate smiled and destiny
Laughed as she came to my cradle
Know this child will be able
Laughed as my body she lifted
Know this child will be gifted
With love, with patience and with faith
She’ll make her way
–Natalie Merchant, Wonder

This is an unusual image for me, since it came out looking very traditional Christian. And if that is what works for you, great. Was it my original intention? No. Dan said “Oh, that’s her spirit leaving her body,” and once he did, I could totally see it. But I had intended more of a Guardian Angel theme, which brought me to the lyrics from Wonder. Anyone you see it, that is the right way.
