So now starts the path to healing. I had the opportunity to spend time with James after he became an angel on Sunday and it was so comforting. He truly is resting in peace and that created such a beautiful atmosphere in the room. There was no grief during those hours because we got to see his beautiful face with no tubes or trauma. I am so thankful that my sister gave us the chance. I know that I will be holding onto that feeling for a long time to come. That is how I want to remember him. I know that he touched our lives in a special way forever. There was a gift in knowing him. I can't put it into words, but I will be able to one day. My sister and Jimmy are my heros with the grace they displayed. They will be proud of themselves one day when all this pain has gone.
I wonder when it is time to post on my favorite boards again, when it is time to scrap. When will I want to blog hop and make comments in galleries? I have lots of people to thank for all their kind words and thoughts. When will I enjoy a Saturday evening just sitting here quietly creating? It will come. I guess this is the first step.
I am looking forward to this:
Only a few more days and Steve & I will be home with the kids for the summer. They are early risers, but I don't think I mind anymore.
I have a happy share. I am one of the featured readers for the Eye Spy posting on the Dream Street blog today. I love that company so much, so I am honored. It is a nice distraction and made me smile, so thanks for letting me share.
Off to make dinner and carry on with night, a call to my sisters in the works.
