When a gentle warm summer breeze blows, it wraps around me like a soft warm hug and I think of you. When I walk in the woods and I listen to the beautiful busy sounds of nature, my heart is still and I feel your presence.
When the hot summer sun shines and warms the side of my face I'm reminded of your beautiful smile and it warms my heart and lifts my spirit.
This time and space thing never really will heal my broken heart, but my heart does get softer every year that goes by. It's shaping into something that can hold all of the memories and the time and the space and the agonizing, beautiful silence until we meet again...
Until then Dear Jason,
I'll treasure everyday and live boldly and love deeply and forgive often, because I got to know and love you for a short time.
When I think of the hurt that your heart has endured, I remember to love my children more fiercely.
The grace in which you've dealt with a loss too terrible for most to imagine, is helping to shape me into the kind of mother I'd like to be.
You are a Warrior Mama in every sense of the word. The strength in which you raised your son with, empowers & strengthens me to warrior on and keep going even when I feel like I'm in over my head and I want to give up.
The love that you have for your beautiful son, your family and the world around you, has filled all of our hearts to the brim and we are all better people for knowing you.
I am proud to call you Auntie. I remember clomping around in your shoes as a youngster, thinking of how amazing it would be to grow up and be just like you.
June 21st is an amazing day filled with beautiful memories and my heart is so full and so very thankful today.
June 21st isn't just the first day of summer, it's Woody's day and always will be :) ❤️❤️❤️
