Georgie's Day

Today is three years from the day my baby boy, Georgie, died and in honor of him I planted my tomato seeds for this year's vegetable garden.  Spring gardening always reminds me of him and everything in my garden keeps his memory alive in my heart.  I am still amazed that the tiniest tomato seed can make such a giant plant but at the same time I see the seeds that come up with no leaves at all and soon wither and die and I am reminded of the fragility of life and that it is such a miracle that I even have two healthy children and another one wiggling around inside me.  There were no tears today, no calls, no hugs, no cards but I really don't feel like I need them anymore. I wore his birthstone baby ring on my heart locket necklace so it would be close to my heart and I am happy and find joy in my life every day.   He is such an important part of my faith and hope in the plan of salvation and I receive strength from his perfect example.  I will always strive to do what is right so that I may someday be reunited with him because I know he walks with Christ and is working to bring us all home.  I love you angel boy.
