Heaven


We just got back from visiting Gideon, it's the 20th. Time really does stop when we are out there, it's wonderful. There was a blanket of stars covering the sky; spreading as far as the eye could see. It was like looking at the ocean only instead of water it was stars. It was...... breathtaking!

Without thinking Seth laid down in the grass. I had no choice but to join him. I'm so glad I did! It felt like heaven (and I don't say that lightly) It couldn't have been any better than it was at that moment. Knowing we had one little one tucked snuggly in bed at home (Tori was with her) and two more looking down on us from above. Nothing else mattered. Life was (is) good. Seth and I each saw a shooting star. One from Grace and one from Gideon. They were letting us know they saw us. Letting us know they were happy. Happy because we are here strong, healthy, growing, full of love and life. Happy because of where they are (they really are in Heaven!) Tell me what could be better?!

Sounds like an amazing moment watching the stars and being reminded of where your precious children are! Oh, and by the way...I cried too when I watched that video. :)

What an amazing and intimate moment for you guys. God cares about it all, doesn't He. He even commissioned two stars to remind you of that. Wow.
