A year ago today...

I found myself snuggled next to my sweet little boy in his hospital bed on what would be his final day on earth. I will never forget that moment in those early morning hours. As I held his hand, I remember asking him to help mommy and daddy know what we could do for him. I told him how much we loved him and that we didn't want him to leave, but if he needed to - we would try to be strong like him, and let him go (for now). A feeling rushed over me...and I just knew. I knew he was tired, that he had completed his earthly tasks, and more importantly, that it'd all be ok.
So here we are, it's early morning again - and I am snuggled next to Cannon's darling little sister, in my own bed. How lucky are we to be holding this precious baby on what will probably be one of the hardest days we'll have to endure year after year. Plain and simple, God is good.
There are words I'm sure...but I can't seem to write them. So for now, I'll share a song that Anais showed me that makes me smile/cry.
"Happy" tears ofcourse :~).
