I love you Noah!

7 months ago today at 6:30am, craddled in my arms & surrounded by daddy & your siblings, you fell asleep peacefully & were ushered into the arms of our heavenly Father. You are so blessed Noah to only have ever known love in your short life. No pain, no heartaches of this world....only love in it's purest form. We look forward to the day when we are reunited as a family once again. Until then, remember how much we love, cherish & miss you Noah! ♥

The world may never notice
If a Snowdrop doesn't bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall too soon.

But every life that ever forms,
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.

The little one we longed for
Was swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.

And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do.
Every beating of our hearts
Says that we love you.

Thank you to the many dear friends who remembered today, whether by notes, phone calls, messages or prayers. For reaching out and talking, for embracing the many tears I had today & not being afraid of them and for caring enough to ask questions & encourage me. Thank you for taking to heart the previous blog and links I shared and learning from them. God is definitely using our story for a greater purpose as many of you have shared your thoughts lately on what I talked about which has been a blessing to me. While it doesn't ease our grief, it's a comfort to know Noah is teaching so many people things they may have never had the chance to have learned. Myself including. It's a painful journey that I am still muddling my way through and one I pray you will never have to endure.

So this Valentines day, love & embrace your not so tidy house, the fingerprints on the wall that always seem to appear and let go of all the trivial things that really don't matter for eternity. Because it means you are blessed to have your kids with you, showering you with love in all the little ways I am missing with Noah. The slobbery kisses, goofy giggles, and even night time feedings. Kevin, the kids & I all miss what Noah would be doing here with us today.
