Explaining the word ‘dead’

I still never speak the work 'dead' about my angel in Heaven. He is in Heaven. He is not here on Earth. But I refuse to believe that he is gone. I know he is not. He is with me in spirit, riding on my heart, and in every one of my thoughts. My angel … Continue reading Explaining the word ‘dead’

Magical Christmas

This is the fourth Christmas we have celebrated with our angel in Heaven. It will be the third we are celebrating with our angel on Earth. It is the very first Christmas where we have a child who is cognizant of Santa, terribly excited for him to visit, planning what kind and where the cookies … Continue reading Magical Christmas

Time stops

Hi, Baby, It feels like it's been a while since I've written to you. I talk to you every day, and even though I can't always hear you, I know you are listening. Like on Thanksgiving, when we had both grandma's, both grandpa's, your aunt and your cousins. It was a dinner of all our … Continue reading Time stops

The two gentlemen who work with … Continue reading A connection

Typically, I'm more of a 'jam band' fan, and the concerts I attend are folksy, with a lot of rhythm and not a lot of flare. But I'm a closet Swifty, and I have to say, she did not disappoint. … Continue reading Angel in the crowd

Three years, two months

You've now been in Heaven as long as you were on Earth. It feels impossible that I have lived without you as long as you were with me. But in my heart I know you've never left me. It's still so hard, seeing all your little friends, celebrating their Kindergarten graduations theses past two weeks. … Continue reading Three years, two months

Three years

Hello, my sweet angel in Heaven. Thank you for visiting my dreams last night. I knew today would be a hard day, and I'm so happy I got a glimpse of you, even if faint, and even if brief. There are a lot of days I don't want to get out of bed. Today I … Continue reading Three years
