A New Year Is Almost Here

A year ago today - I would have laughed if someone told me I would meet the love of my life in 2007. Then I met Jack - in the form of two little lines on a stick - then as a woosh-woosh-woosh-woosh on a doppler - then a little alien looking thing on an ultra-sound. To finally getting to see that little face - my lips, his Daddy's cheeks.... Who knew it would be for such a short time. What an impact on my heart. A face that will forever be engraved into my mind.

What a blessing this journey has been - even with it ending in heart break. I have learned what the most important thing is in this world - love. That someone who lives 100's of mile away can understand me more than my Mom. That I could fall even more in love with my husband.

What do I hope for in 2008? Some peace. Some understanding. Some hope. Another little baby to fall in love with? If God permits.

To my Baby Jack - I love you with all my heart.
We miss you every day.
Please always remember you were...
wanted...
needed...
dreamed of....
And you will always be...
missed...
adored...
and loved.
I'll see you in the sunshine!

I keep imagining - with every new Mom we meet - our little ones are inviting a new angel to play. When it gets real bad (and it's been that way this past week) - I try to remember that it was love I wanted to teach Jack - not so much sadness. I'm trying! :-)
