Thought I would share this page, this is from a challenge at a great new website I’ve been playing at while I’ve been sick. www.savvynsassy.com The Challenge was to use the quote, “I shut my eyes in order to see.” I was not at all happy when Baby James was the first thing I thought of because I’ve been pretty selective with who I share his story with, but after pondering and trying to force some other pages I asked Lena what she thought and she told me to go for it…so I did. The journaling reads……It’s hard to believe it’s been almost three years since James was born and died. I love to look at his scrapbook but I can close my eyes and remember every detail of his precious little being. His hands and feet were beautiful. He was eleven inches long and weighed 1.1 pound. We were blessed to spend 52 minutes with him and we loved him, held him, rocked him and watched him quietly slip away to go home to his Heavenly Father…52 minutes that will last me a lifetime until I get to heaven to love him, hold him and rock him! This time of the year always makes me think about the what ifs with Baby James, the reality is Lyss and I will buy a toy for a three year old this year and donate it somewhere as I’ve done every year. We hung Baby James’ Christmas ornament on the tree right next to Lyssa’s as we have each year, it’s her own little tradition.
