To my pirate on Halloween



Dear Ben,

This was one of your favorite days of the year! Halloween, where you could don your pirate-y things, and run through the neighborhood collecting your pirate booty...all the candy a kid could want. I am going to miss watching you create your latest pirate. You had been working on making your black pirate hat look more like the ones in the Pirates of the Carribean. I think you used most of my scotch tape!

How I miss you son. These "firsts" are the hardest. The first Halloween without you. I pray that you know how very much I cherish the time I had with you, my sweet angel boy. Do you get to dress up in Heaven? I sure hope so.

Love,

Mommy

This is such a beautiful post.

I just saw your comment on Karen Edmisten's site and wanted to tell you that I think about you and your family very frequently. I often wonder how you're doing and pray for you and Ben.

I hope you don't mind me commenting, I just wanted to let you know that you are in my prayers.

Jenny - I thought of you earlier this week and realized that today might be a tough day for you, so I have been sending many prayers your way. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, and may God bless you with His grace and peace.
