Today, I am thankful.

Today, I am thankful for the moments that I had with my son.  I am thankful for his long fingers and short fingernails.  I am thankful for his adorable little pointed ear.  I am thankful for his big, puffy cheeks.  I am thankful for his toes and his feet.  I am thankful for the times of seeing his big brothers hold him and love on him.  I am thankful that Joshua was able to see past his little brother’s cleft palate & lip and sing to him, holding him and kissing him.  I am thankful for the warm kisses I was able to give him.  I am thankful for all his sweet, precious noises.  I thankful for the myriad faces he made, even while asleep.  I am thankful that he knows no pain or discomfort anymore.  I am thankful for having been blessed to be his mama, even for the briefest of time.  My life IS better for knowing him, for carrying him, for valuing him exactly as he was.  I am thankful for Jedidiah.
