So, it's official... most of the holidays are over for a good little bit... well the big ones anyhow. It's official Thanksgiving is November 22 and Christmas is shortly thereafter... that means we baby loss mommies have four months of a break from holidays... excluding birthday month anniversaries and things of that nature.
As all of you know, yesterday was July 4th.
When I woke up yesterday, my good friend Lynsey and her husband were on my mind, since this would be their first holiday without their son, so soon after losing him.
Yesterday also had been one month since Jake was supposed to have been born. One whole long month since his due date had come and gone.
We celebrated in usual fashion by grilling steaks and hamburgers... visited with family.
Payton and I even played outside in the sprinkler for good measure.
To top off the evening Payton, my mother and I watched a huge fireworks display in a town nearby.
I loved seeing the grins on Payton's face as we watched... then out of nowhere a glimmer of sadness filled me. I began thinking how Jake should be with me... how he was supposed to be watching them from earth here with his family, not in Heaven with his heavenly father.
I bet he had the better seats though. ;)
Do you think the babies in Heaven get to take a break from their homework to watch fireworks?
I hope so.
|These fireworks were so beautiful and|
made an awesome night!
|Every smiley face that popped last night was upside down... except to the people in Heaven watching the brilliant display in Texas!!|
