I am almost speechless. The above is Lena’s arm. I had asked her to do the post today, I told her since she loves herself so much she should do this post. She showed me didn’t she?
J.W.C. is James’ initials, and to think they are on Lena’s arm has made me cry for an hour. I don’t even know if I can put my feelings into words.
I always wonder if he’ll be forgotten someday, especially once I leave this earth. Will he be a part of our family when I’m not reminding everyone about him, and now I know he will.
His big sister will not only remember him, but she honored him by doing something that meant something to her.
I complain about the tattoos all the time, but today I called her and all I could do was cry.
After pondering this turn of events I decided it would be a great post to link to “Works For Me Wednesday”.
When The First Born first decided to fall in love with tattoos I thought it was the end of the world. I’m a little too uptight at times, just ask The First Born (Lena) or Mr. Perfect (Shane). After awhile I grew to accept tattoos were just a part of The First Born and I needed to accept them.
Today I finally get it, you see I didn’t see ink on The First Born’s arm, I didn’t see a tattoo. I saw Baby James’ initials. The tattoo meant something to me so I got past it being a tattoo. I finally get that is how The First Born feels about all of her tattoos. So, the tattoos finally “work for me”.
Lena Nicole, I love you from the bottom of my heart and I hope you never know how much those initials mean to me. I hope you never know the heartbreak I’ve lived with for the last four years, but if you do I hope you have a child as special as yourself to make it all bearable.
