Five Months

This beautiful little guy would have turned five-months-old today.

As I look at this photo (one I thought I had lost),
I so want to kiss that sweet little nose...that lovable face.
As I look at others,
I can still feel the weight of his body in my arms...
and the feel of his skin as I held him.
I'm grateful for that.

They say that grief looks differently for everyone.
Right now, it looks like smudges from kisses on the glass of two picture frames.
It looks like a pile of lego guys, parachutes, candy and even a gun given to a baby brother.
And, it looks like an ever-growing list of examples of God's faithfulness to us.

p.s. Tomorrow morning starts the Hello Mornings challenge.
It isn't too late to join if you'd like to join our Facebook group.

Grief does have many faces but the only cure is through Jesus Christ. It is a long road that probably never ends but gets easier to walk on. Between such a wonderful husband and son you will have a better trip than most. Looking forward to that concert sometime.
