Theme Thursday: Bright

Linking up with the inspired CareBear (Housewifespice says you love that nickname!)....


Today is Eamon's 6th birthday. Six years ago at 10:02 in the morning, our grief was assuaged. The pain of the last 15 months was soothed in the most amazing way. We held a healthy, living baby in our arms and sobbed tears of joy. His big sister in Heaven sent us a gorgeous baby boy and kissed his forehead to remind us she was always watching over him and us (true story: Eamon was born with a red birthmark between his eyebrows and on his right eyelid. When the pediatrician checked him out he told us those birthmarks are called "angel kisses".)

"Bright joy" is the mental image I associate with our Eamon. He brought sunshine and peace back into our lives and has continued to do so ever since.

Happy 6th Birthday, my bright ray of joy!

We love you!
