Rory Feek/This Life I Live
In the midst of such sadness, Joey + Rory‘s sweet little girl Indiana is always able to make them smile.
Rory often shares photos of Indy’s joyful moments on him and Joey’s Facebook page. Since the photos bring so much happiness to Joey + Rory themselves, they chose to share those moments of happiness with their fans as well.
On Friday (Feb. 5) Rory posted a photo collage showing the things Indy does to make her mama’s day. As the photos show, all Indy has to do to put a smile on Joey’s face is to start smiling herself.
In the adorable photos Indy is shown giggling and making silly faces, which not only made her happy, but Joey as well, as made clear in Rory’s caption.
“Indy making her mama smile today,” he wrote.
After the past few days, smiles shared with little Indy are the exact thing Joey needs. In one of his recent blog posts, Rory revealed that Joey is “thin and gaunt, and more frail than ever.” Knowing that she may not be around much longer, Rory wrote about how Joey has started preparing seedlings for him and Indy to take back to Tennessee to plant in their family garden:
“It’s hard for me to believe that there will be life after this cold, hard winter…and I think Joey knows that. Getting us ready for something that we can’t see right now for the tears in our eyes…something she might not even get to see at all. Spring.”
Although Joey + Rory certainly have their moments of sadness, their little Indy is their bright light of joy, and has been since the day she was born. Joey + Rory celebrate Indy’s birth in the music video for their Grammy-nominated song “If I Needed You,” which you can watch below.
We continue to send our prayers out to Joey, Rory, and Indy.
