Happy Photos of Porter

I'm missing my boy, a lot. Especially with the holidays here. Looking at photos seem to fill a little bit of the emptiness I'm feeling. It's very interesting to me as I browse through a lot of old photos I'm noticing Porter in the background of a lot of them. I wouldn't have thought twice about seeing him in them if he were still alive and here with us. I'm so glad I didn't casually delete them. It's amazing how priceless photos become when a loved one has passed away.

I've been wondering how you've been. I bet this is such a hard time of year. I hope you will have peace this holiday season.

He looks so alive in his photos. What a trip. I think they are a great reminder that he is still that alive. Life goes by quickly and you'll be reunited with him soon enough. OF course, I'd still miss him terribly if I were you. But he does still live. That is worth a lot. It makes Christmas that much more poignent. I was teaching my little 6 year-old Sunday school class that we celebrate Christmas because Christ gave his life so that we can live again, to remove the sting of death. I hope that you are able to find comfort in that this season as you miss the presence of your precious son. He was so bright. Still is. I believe that they celebrate Christmas in Heaven, too. That is something you know that you can be doing together this season.

My heart goes out to you. I am trying to be grateful for all the good things my son is doing right now. While trying to ignore those feelings that I keep getting every time someone announces that their son just got their mission call. Then try to be happy for them.
