Leaving Jacob

Today we went to visit Jacob's gravesite.

It was a little rough. Emily, who until now has been too little to really understand, fell apart at the site and cried that she "missed him." Brittany was fairly stoic, as usual. Kaedra was running around looking at the other babies' flowers. Michael went and sat on a bench for awhile. I put Jacob's new flowers in and arranged them.

As we were walking away, I felt like something was wrong. I looked behind me, sure we had left one of the kids behind.

Of course, we had.

Kahri, I am so sorry for the big hole you have in your heart for your little Jacob. My heart aches for you as well. God bless you!

Sometimes the truth hits you like a slap in the face, doesn't it?

I know that feeling.

May God continue to heal you as you bless His name.

May you feel God's arms around you. I feel such sadness just thinking about your day; I can never imagine the sadness that you feel. God bless you and keep you!
