To my precious Josiah, who would have been 13 today:
Son, I never held you in my arms, I never heard your voice, or was able to decide who you favored the most in looks and personality.
Your life here on earth ended before you ever left the haven of my womb and before we could ever behold your face. A lot of people would tell me that your short life on earth was pointless, but it wasn’t,
Son. I just want to say that your short life here was noticed and to say that I am so happy for you — that you have spent the past 13 years in the presence of God!!! I am a little jealous that you were able to behold the face of Jesus before me. 🙂
Son, your two earthly parents and five siblings can’t wait to meet you someday! I am so happy for you that you are experiencing only pure joy, love, and peace! Shalom, my Son… until we meet again!
