These Eyes

Looking deep into these eyes today … remembering what he looked like – one small detail at a time.

I know all mothers say that their kids are beautiful … but dang … what a handsome kid he was/is.  What I remember the most is the way his hair and head felt under my hand.  I used to run my hand from his forehead to the back of his head all the time.  His hair was smooth and his head perfectly round.  And those eyes … doe like.  Always soft.

These pictures almost seem like someone else’s.  Like I’m staring at someone else’s child.  The harsh reality on how quickly life changes.  And proof that healing is possible.

Love, Mel

  1. “These pictures almost seem like someone else’s. Like I’m staring at someone else’s child” – my feelings EXACTLY!!!!!! I get the same feeling when someone has shared Erik’s story on FB. I think “omg, how horrible” and then I realize they are sharing MY story. 😦

    I think out of the 4 boys, Owen looks the most like you. ❤

  2. The resemblance between mother and son is so strong! Those are YOUR eyes, Mel. Just sayin’.

  3. Healing the heart takes so much time, there always remains an ache for the ones we lost. I rely on those precious memories shared by ones we loved and lost! Love and prayers. Sher
