A hard day

One year ago today, Ben went to his new home in Heaven. I miss him so passionately. I still cannot fathom that I will not hold him again. My heart skips a beat when I realize the truth.

Little Ben, I am trying to stay strong. Please intercede for your mama and ask God to give our family all the graces we need to continue each day without your smile, charm, and hugs.

I love you.

Thought of you today! It is just past midnight so it will appear with tomorrow's date now. Hope you feel the love of friends and the comfort of God's grace surrounding you. Prayers are with you. Hope your transition and move to VA goes smoothly. You will be missed here.

Little Ben is beautiful, Jenny. Those eyes! My goodness. I can only imagine how they are shining now--with wisdom, joy, and tremendous love.

A one-year anniversary is very hard. Please know that you are in my prayers today and always...and be strong, for Ben, who is forever watching over you with those awesome eyes. Be strong for Ben.

Jenny and family, I want you to know that you are all in my prayers. Ben was such a sweet, loving little guy, and I always thought he was wiser than his years. So angelic too - I would remember him coming quietly into the living room at your parents' house and cuddling with you or his grandparents whenever I would visit over the holidays. I never witnessed him demanding attention/throwing the tantrums of a "normal" child. (I'm sure he probably did on occasion, but it's clear he was not the typical kid!) He just seemed to be a "giver" of love, all the time. I feel blessed to have known him and will always have him in my memories.

I just read Ben's story and it has really touched me. I know you will hold him again one day.
