Sundays with Owen

On a warm, sunny day in May 2008, Jason, the boys and I walked through the cemetery on a quest to find the "perfect" resting spot for our little Owen. No mother should ever have to be on this quest as her child wiggles inside of her, so full of life. But, this was the reality of our situation.
We wanted to find a spot that we would all be comfortable visiting, that we would find peace in. Oh, we know that Owen is not really there. We are confident that he is safe in the arms of our Heavenly Father, but it still brings us comfort and peace to spend time, as a family, hanging out at the cemetery.

Your boys have learned so many lessons through your example and testimony over this past year. They've learned about life...eternal life...and the ways that God comforts us and holds us in our grieving. They've learned that we can praise Him and thank Him, even when it hurts. So thankful for all that you're modeling before them. So thankful for you...
