Owls

Thomas loved owls.
He also loved light blue, green, birds, and nests.
(ok.....so maybe his mom loves these things...but he did too)

We put up a Christmas tree and hung stockings, and I made sure to include some sweet reminders of Thomas.  His stocking is hanging next to ours, and each of the owl ornaments was hung with him in mind.  He is in our thoughts constantly, and we miss him so much.

"I thank my God every time I remember you." Phil 1:3 (NIV)

  4. Our Emily has a stuffed owl that says "Whooo loves you?" with John 3:16 following. A beautiful reminder all the way around... You've been in our hearts and prayers and will continue to be throughout this season.

  13. Continuing to pray for you and TJ. I don't know comforting it is knowing this, but your blog and Thomas' life has given me a perspective I haven't had in a long time. Everyday I look at things different because of Thomas. Thank you so much for sharing his beautiful life with us. We grieve with you.
    Much Love and many prayers
