Today was Gwenyth Pearl's blessing day at church:

It was such a happy day.

This weekend we heard that a family friend died. He was a good friend of my youngest son's. All weekend long, we thought of him and his family. Shared memories. Wept. We won't ever forget him.

that was then. and, paradoxically, forever.

And today, we went to church and celebrated the life of a new little person.

It's too much to reconcile. We're mourning and celebrating all at once.

Happy blessing day to Gwen!


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about this tragedy and the loss of your son's friend, HT, but so glad you had a day of celebration and blessings to help you smile a little too. Miss Gwen looks like such an angel -- what a sweet baby face she has. She's making me smile too.

    Love from Georgia!

  2. Princess Gwennie! I am happy for this day, but sorry I couldn't be there.

  3. Thank you for this, HTMS.

  4. I thought I left a comment on this post! It was such an emotional weekend--a weekend of mourning and celebration. I'm thankful to be part of such a wonderful family.
