Two years ago, we hosted a Dirt Party for the kids... in thanksgiving for the gift of God's beautiful creation and specifically, dirt.
Mud pies ready for judging.
We also said hello and goodbye to tiny Baby Matthew Athanasius. We have no pictures and will have to wait until heaven to see the details of his precious face, but we have images of the siblings and cousins as they dance around the graves of the precious innocents.... a beautiful foreshadowing!
A beautiful day to say our temporary goodbyes.
It seemed unlikely to happen, but my love for the little one who left us so quickly has only grown with time. My desire to see him increases. My joy at knowing he lives and waits blossoms. Thanks be to God!
