I wrote this last year and, to be honest, I don’t have anything new to say for this year’s birthday.
Four birthdays after Dominic ran ahead to heaven and I’m no better at it than I was the first time.
I will never get used to waking to a sunrise that is supposed to mark another year of fellowship and enjoyment of my third child but instead is a reminder that the life that was Dominic is no more on this earth.
Some parents find wonderful ways to commemorate their child even in their absence. I haven’t been able to do that consistently.
So today I will think about and remember and be thankful for the many things Dominic was and still is, but miss his smile, his laughter, his giant presence.
Happy Birthday Son-it would be 27.
You should be here.
