This weekend I went to Florida to say goodbye to Henry, my dear childhood best friend’s 3 year old son who left this world all too soon. Rebecca and Dan honored their son in such beautiful ways. There were so many precious details that spoke deeply of their love.

She said it best, right after his birth, “There’s a piece of your heart and spirit that swells to make room for this new love in your life. That’s why it hurts so much when your little one is threatened or hurt in any way. Because this piece of you is them. Even though they’re no longer physically inside of you, there is still a space carved out for them in your soul” 

Henry, you are no longer physically with us, you are in the arm of our Savior, but you’ve carved out such deep spots in our souls that will never be filled. May we all see you in the sunrise and feel in you in sunset. You truly are your momma’s sunshine.
