Precious gift

This past Christmas, I got this snow globe from my best friend, April. It touched my heart and made me cry like a baby. Inside the snow globe is a tree with a heart that reads: We never lose the ones we love.... they live on in our hearts. On the front is my son's name. It meant so much to me because sometimes after all the initial part of a death in the family is over, people tend to forget. I have been so fortunate that my close friends and family have not forgotten about my baby that only lived for three heartbeats in this world. It helps knowing that he not only lives on in me but in them also. I couldn't have gotten a better gift this Christmas. Conner will always be a part of me and my life. Thank you April for my gift, it meant the world to me.

It's so lovely to have friends that are more like sisters...I call them Sisters of the Heart...I have two of them, my Jacqui and Maureen...the ones I depend on to keep me sane. My blood sisters are as nutty as I am, so what good would they be? I love the snowglobe...
hugs to you
