3 years

As time passes, I feel like I really don't have a whole lot to say that's new or very meaningful to anyone but me. The contrast between my two boys who are so very much full of life and David has been very evident lately. Benjamin is developing a will of his own and the means to express it continually.

There seem to be so many things that we should have been watching David do over the last 3 years. At times I've reflected on all the life that we've missed out on without him growing up with us. I was sad for us...for him. And then I realized that he is not to be pitied. He's already in the midst of everything that keeps me going when things get crazy and hard. He's experiencing joy and blessing that are still beyond my understanding. So I'll look forward to the day that I can join him, but that doesn't mean I won't miss him.

  1. Three years. Good perspective, Crystal. Happy birthday, David.

    Can you believe you've lived through it to say the things you've said here??? The grace of our Lord is incredible.

  3. I agree.... After I've spent time with the boys I do often find myself wondering what he would have been like and how he would have meshed between the other two crazies, but I must say that I too look forward to the day we all will join him in his heavenly bliss. I love you all, including David!
