I see you in that preschool hallway, dropping you off for your first day,
and playing with your brother at recess, while sharing snacks on the drive home.
I see you wrestling with your older brother and climbing into your baby brother’s crib.
I see you jumping into the pool with your water wings on and letting your big sister lead you around.
I see you, cuddling into bed with your brothers and sister while I read stories at night.
I see you playing monster trucks on the floor.
You’re the fourth set of Mickey Mouse ears at DisneyLand.
You’re the sixth table setting for Christmas Dinner.
You’re the fourth hooded towel after bathtime.
I’ll never see just three.
I still see you….

Thank you for sharing your heart, Ashley. Your words are beautiful and raw and wise and I am thankful I found your blog. As I read it through lots of tears, I am thankful for the blessings that have come through the suffering in my own life as well. I am thankful for a God that has never and will never leave me. Thank you for reminding me of these things. Your Joshua is adorable and I am so glad I have been able to learn about his short but significant and beautiful life. Also, how special now that I know where John got his name!
Your words and your life point to God’s goodness-thank you.
