little things that help bring sunshine

Through the tears, the heaviness, and the sadness of the day little things were there to try and make the day a little more happy...

The first little thing came in the mail a few days ago.  I card addressed to my "Master O".  Just the sight of his name took my breath away.  I held it close to my heart, and tried to soak in the moment that would have been normally such a joyful occasion.  Kids just love getting mail addressed to them and I know Oliver would have squealed with delight at the sight of his very own envelope.  The back of the letter said "to be opened on 29/03 so the letter sat unopened on my dresser until yesterday.  Inside was a beautiful card, just for Oliver, wishing him a happy birthday.  A treasure from a dear friend, who is missing her own angel boy today too.

Last night our beautiful friends made a little birthday celebration come to life with special chocolate cupcakes.  We sang a song, shed a tear (or 100) and shared a moment together to remember the 4 short hours we had with Oliver, seven years ago...

Little things, given from huge hearts overflowing with love for our family, to remember a small baby and his little life.
