It's about time I posted a new post to let everyone know that has been donating that I have received their products and they have all been given to a new home. Memorial day came and went. I know this holiday was origianly made to respect the veterans, but I also look at it as a holiday to repsect all of our loved ones that have gone before us. I have just sent a son on a Latter Day Saints mission to Tallahassee, Florida. It was hard as i will not (see) him for 2 years. I will hear from him weekly of course, but not having him in our home has been really weird. I miss him. At first, it reminded me of my mourning period with Zachary. It felt so much like that. But when I got his first letter, it was much better. And also, know that he loves where he is and what he is doing has helped a great deal. We have had quite a few losses of young adults in our small town lately, and my heart goes out to all of these mothers who are beginning to walk the path that so many of us are on. I have to say that I am glad that I am a little further down the path as the beginning was so hard....not that it isn't hard now, it's just different. I have a different perspective. I have people in my life that share losses of the same nature, and I do not feel so alone. I guess this is why Mothers of Angels is so important to me. I don't want anyone to lose a child and feel alone. I want them to be able to preserve their memories in their hearts as well as on paper for anyone of their choosing to see. I count my blessings daily as I really am so very blessed. My daughter is pregnant with a little boy who is due the same time of the month of September that Zachary left us. She is naming him Zachary Landon. It will be amazing to have another little Zach around to love and spoil. He will not replace his uncle Zach, but he will be a gentle reminder of the great uncle that he is named after. I expect him to be his own person and he will make his own place in the world. Yet I will be his grandma. The best of both worlds in my opinion! A gentle reminder that love never leaves just grows and goes on. All of my love goes out to my kindred spirits that are on this journey with me and also to express gratitude for the scrapbook supplies that you have so generously donated to Mothers of Angels. Bless your Hearts, Marcie
