My December 14th photo
(see the previous post)
is of a special ornament.
My oldest son's birthday is the 14th of July.
This vintage boy from PaperWhimsy always reminds me of a much younger version of him,
the crown is because in my eyes he will always be a prince,
the dog is for his love of animals,
we call him Dr. Doolittle.
Today he finished his student teaching,
he has officially finished college.
of all days,
so many parents grieving the unthinkable, unbearable loss,
I am conflicted.
I am proud of him, I am heartbroken for them.
I am offering up prayers of thanksgiving for my son,
and joining with all of you in prayers for those Connecticut families.
God Bless Us All.
