In Her Love


I had some old friends over from years gone by. To start off right where we had left. It was honey to the soul.

I showed a picture of my c at 6 months. His gooey chubbiness and round little head.

E looked curiously and I instinctly pulled the picture away. Dreading that he would ask.

“Mom, where is a picture of me… when I was a baby?” I could hear the question in my mind.

A pit is in my stomach. For one day he will fully understand. And the questions will come pouring out of his deepest heart.

And it will hurt.

I have no photos of  you, my son. I have no idea what your life was like.

Yet I know you were loved.

For in her love she gave you up; in her love she gave you life.

    That’s a beautiful place to start Hillary. Father will give you the rest of the words when the time comes.

    I like your new blog layout! So fresh!

    We tell our son that he wasn’t in his mommy’s belly, he was in her heart.

    Can’t help weeping as I read this… He does not know how precious and special he is…
