There is such a thing as a good news story.
You might think a two year old who’d been lost in the woods overnight would be found tearful and traumatized. But when Brooklyn Lynn Lilly was found in the woods of Michigan, 22 hours after she wandered off, she came out with a beautiful smile on her face and said:
“I love it in the woods.”
Here’s the story:
Maybe Brooklyn wasn’t alone in the woods. I believe at least one guardian angel was with her. I like to think maybe it was a special guardian angel who likes the woods. I wouldn’t mind trying that job, say, 40 years from now. And God was with Brooklyn too.
Thank you, God!
Thank you, guardian angels!
Thank you, Jax, the rescue dog who found Brooklyn with help from his human partner!
Being a lover of the woods too, I’m curious to know what Brooklyn saw, what she felt.
Was she a nature girl before she wandered off? Or did she experience something special on her adventure that made her love the woods?
Where did she get that positive attitude? Did it help keep her alive? Did it help the love of her guardian angel get through to her?
I wonder who she will grow up to be.
Stay safe, Brooklyn Lynn Lilly.
There will be time for more adventures when you are a little older.
