I miss you, my son.

Anthony 
At times, I am scared to let you in.
Because I know the pain that will be ushered in
It is relentless; like a whirlwind.

In this picture, I just looked into your eyes,
and the hurt that was there was too much.
I miss you
my son
I can't help but wonder, "why did this happen to us?"

Anthony~ I am so sorry. This picture is just beautiful and yet I can imagine how much pain it brings to look at it especially when I wish that your little boy was here on this earth with you. I know he is constantly by his daddy's side and always will be. But, I wish this never happened to you two. I don't know why things happen to people. Life can be so unfair. Know that you are always in my thoughts and prayers...you, your wife, and your son.

thanks Cameron...things seem to be day by day and at times second by second...

I wish I had an answer for you. Please know that SO MANY people care and are praying for you, even people that you don't know personally, like me. I don't know if this will bring you any comfort, but this was sent to me during a discussion I had with my sister-in-law regarding a family going through a similar loss right now...

And she also shared this...
"I have tried and I cannot find, either in Scripture or history, a strong-willed individual whom God used greatly until He allowed them to be hurt deeply."
-Charles Swindoll
I do not know much about religion or the Bible, but this is something that I know spoke to her, as well as to the family who lost their child at 5 months gestation, and just buried him on Friday. I don't know if it will bring you any comfort whatsoever, but I wanted to share it with you.

thanks Melissa.
your words really make a lot of sense...
Pray for God's hand of love and mercy over my family.

I can't tell you how many times I ask this question myself. Or how much your blog has touched my heart today. Praying for a peace that goes beyond all understanding--especially since questions like ours just don't have any answers on this earth...
