It was a year ago that Anna, of An Inch of Gray, lost her son Jack in a tragic weather-related accident. I wrote then about how the closeness we feel to those we only know through blogging can also bring great sorrow into our lives.
I do not know that anything will bring comfort to Anna and Tim and Margaret on this terrible anniversary; probably not. Yet I still feel compelled to tell them that I think of Jack often, that his smile-a smile I've seen only in photos--is etched in my mind. That birds and legos and handsome brown-eyed boys with generous hearts all remind me of Jack. And they always will.
Thinking of you today, Anna, Tim and Margaret, and wishing you peace.
Please read the Momastery post which explains this photo--you may be inspired to write Jack on your hand and take a photo.
