March 14th marked one year since the birth of a sweet baby Beckett. He didn’t make it to his first birthday, and the last eight months since he left his family have made a mark on my heart. Simon will celebrate his first birthday next week, and my heart is full of gratitude for him.
I wanted Beckett and his mom (who doesn’t read my blog because we’ve never actually met, so I informed her otherwise- hence the pictures) to know we still think of him, and we live our lives differently around here because of him. So I got a blue balloon for each of the kids and we took them to the cemetary where Beckett’s body rests and sent them heavenward. We watched them for a long time until we could no longer see them. Cameron was the only one who had any idea what was going on, but it was a tender moment for me.
