Today we remember, reflect and celebrate Owen.  He would be five today which seems near impossible.  Reflecting upon the past five years it is impossible not to see his legacy, not to see the impact Owen's short life has made ... through Owen's story, it is clear to see that our Redeemer lives and through His grace we have hope.

I look at our little family line-up, and it is hard not to melt in a puddle when it's so obvious that there is a step missing.  But, I look closer and see these incredible gifts that God has given us, beautifully created.  And for that and all of life's lessons, even the hard ones, I am thankful.
And, I am thankful to do life with our sweet friends and family, the ones who checked in today, the ones who are tracking with us and remembering with us.

Such preciousness. Still hurt at the thought of the loss for your family and am in awe of how God helps you see join in all. Can't wait to meet the little guy heaven!

I thought about you and your family on the 30th. But only just now made it here to post. I am coming up on Jackson's fifth birthday this November and too find it hard to believe it's been 5 years since he came and went. How far we've both come! We are blessed and I continue to hope for only good things for you and yours going forward. I am so happy I met you and even though we only met that once, I feel a connection to your family. I keep up on the kids and even see them in Walmart with Dad from time to time. It's amazing to see how great God is. Blessings to you! :)
