happy 4 months in Heaven sweetie


Happy 4 months in Heaven Braveheart!! We know you are precious in God's site to be there, in that perfect Place, so soon in your young life. We know that there are reasons behind of all this...things that we cannot even fathom with our earthly minds as to how this path has unfolded in our lives. Even though this would not have been our choice for you, we know that God gave us a great love for you, one that will never die. We find comfort in knowing there is some 'why' that we may never know but it is there and it is Heavenly and good.
The earth is still having trouble warming up around here without you running about with your bright smile, basking in your chair in the yard, but we keep encouraging it to go ahead and warm up...it's ok...B would have wanted us all to be warm..we tell it...I think it will get it's legs soon my dear boy...you don't have to worry about these things anymore where you are. You are basking in perfection!
We remember that Spring is your favorite season. We think of you as the daffodils bloom and the crocuses sprout through the ground and the tulips begin to show off...everything reminds us of you...I will still put in a garden because I know you would want it...I will plant beets just for you forever and imagine you weeding them with me....
Everywhere we look and everything we do, reminds us of you and your life here...the weekends reminding us of our fun family times...the boys talking about their latest adventures....oh..it was like you were right there in the kitchen with us and we could see how much you would be laughing that special laugh and rubbing your hands together like you do...so excited to interact with the topic...oh it is so fresh in my mind...it was hard to scoop out only 5 bowls of ice cream where there once were 6....you are missed my love..
Now your birthday is coming up soon...you will have been 16....we are trying to learn how to live without you...we are taking good care of your siblings as you would have wanted...but oh how we miss you...

Here is Braveheart exactly one year ago. He was feeling so much better, getting nice and fat cheeked from his medicine he had to take for is GVHD and he was able to come with the kid's school on a field trip to the River Museum. He tired easily, but he did very well. Oh...I remember it like yesterday.

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
