This is one of my favorite pictures with Mason. I can't exactly remember when I took this, but it was during my maternity leave. I just want to hold him forever, cuddled up close to my heart, especially after the tragedy that occurred this past Friday. As we go about our daily routines, preparing for Christmas, families are grieving, trying to understand how they could possibly keep going. Babies were lost that day. They were just babies. A parent's nightmare. And my heart aches for them.
It rained on Friday evening, tears from heaven. Crying over the violence, but those babies were welcomed with loving open arms.
It's still hard to fathom though.
