This last Sunday was a fun, special day. We had our annual Church party. This year my sweet Mother-In -Love offered to host it. After Church we head to her home for a feasting and fun. I love potlucks you get to experiences each others best.
Later we went to a Church in the Palisades for a candlelighting for Jonathan It was National Children's Memorial Day. Our local Miss support group hosted it as well as the comfort care director from our hospital. It was wonderful to fellowship with Other Baby Loss Mommies.
Everyone had the opportunity to go to the front and say a few words and who they were lighting the candle for. I read, Angel Baby a poem I wrote for Jonathan right after He was born. I was OK until I said, Love Mommy then the tears fell.
It is so helpful to my heart to do things that honor my sweet boy Jonathan. I feel so happy the we had time to reflect on him to talk about him and honor him.
The greatest gift in all the world is compassion, understanding and LOVE .
We ended the night at my mother-in-loves, enjoying her beautifully decorated home.
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing
