Five years

Close your eyes,
Have no fear,
The monsters gone,
He's on the run and your daddy's here,

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It's getting better and better,

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we'll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it's a long way to go,
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

~ John Lennon

With all the love my heart can hold, birthday kisses and hugs to heaven, my sweet, sweet little boy. I miss you and I'll love you forever and a day.
Love, Mommy

He is breathtakingly beautiful.

Send Mommy a heavenly kiss, somehow, won't you, Thomas? I know you miss her, too...

Happy Birthday to a beautiful Angel, Thomas.
Kristin and Sandy, I wish you both lots of love and inner peace. I have thought about you a lot since your lost in March of 2005. I always remember Thomas and you both on this special day. I too lost a little boy in November of 2006. Lots of hugs and love for you today and always.

I hope you remember who I am.

Many blessings of Light to you, your husband, Thomas, and the souls of your little twins. You are a remarkable woman. It helps me to know we are not the only ones who have experienced this...

My husband and I did our Random Acts of Kindness along with so many others. The only answer is to keep loving...

Thomas' beautiful face.
i am drinking it in, just sitting with him.

yesterday was five years since things went wrong for us, such that 7 weeks later when Finn was born, he couldn't make it.

i thought that after this long the day wouldn't knock me down. it did. remembering that it was Thomas' birthday somehow comforted me, broadened my little closed circle.

an odd little random act of kindness you gave me. i thank you.

It's really lovely to hear you use the word Mommy about yourself.

I am so sad he is not here. It is just all too wrong.

Blessings to you little one.

love B

I've been swamped & my Google Reader is overflowing... but I wanted to let you know I've been thinking of you & Thomas.

I adopted "Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans" as my personal motto after Katie's stillbirth. It is still my favourite quote.

Thinking about Thomas and did an act of kindness yesterday in his name in making a meal for someone in need. It's amazing the effect Thomas has had across the world.

Please read how IVF medications led to my breast cancer and how a breast cancer study using genetic testing to check estrogen metabolism is saving my life. Please share my story with all women who have used or are considering IVF, HRT and anyone with estrogen positive breast cancer.
