I am all over the place today.
I started my day listening to blur. Now I have headed off into the world of Wax, Jamiroquai and now Everclear.
I warned you I was all over the place. Just trying to get the day in so that I can head home for a long weekend. Time to garden, read, do nothing. Spend time with DH.
Not really sure how to describe my feelings on this day. I am having one of those days where you just float through. Knowing what tomorrow brings. The joys and the sadness. C left us 3 years ago tomorrow.
The following words are from the story book “On The Night You were Born” by Nancy Tillman. They are etched into the back of C’s headstone. Kind of a little secret from us to him. You cannot view it from the road. Few know it is there.
“On the night you were born,
the moon shone with such wonder
that the stars peeked in
to see you
and the night wind whispered,
‘Life will never be the same.’
Because there had never been
anyone like you…
ever in the world.”
HIs copy of this book, still sits on my nightstand. I read it now and then and beneath my pillow as I sleep is one of his blankets from the NICU.
My wish today is that all know just how blessed their life is to have the sounds of a little one laughing in their home and their lives.
