I am grateful for the peace I have felt from the Lord. I know He is carrying me. I have felt the prayers of friends and family. I want to try and write everything down while the emotion I have is still strong and I remember exactly how I feel.
Some nights ago I was weeping and pleading with God that I would feel His love and arms wrap around me. I was so angry that Finn didn't fully understand about Rowan's death and that he couldn't love and comfort me like I wanted him to. I wasn't accepting the fact that he is almost 2 and that how he is acting right now is normal (albeit an inopportune time).
Immediately after my prayer I was able to calm down. Then Dennen walked in with Finn. Finn gave me a huge hug around my neck from behind. I know that Finn loves me and I get so happy when he gives me big squeezes around the neck. There have been times since Rowan's death that Finn has looked me in the eyes and I know he understands I'm hurting. When he came to see us and Rowan at the hospital, he hopped up on a little stool in front of where I was sitting and holding little Rowan's body. He put his precious hands on my knees and just looked in my eyes as if to say, "I'm so sorry for you mom."
I guess that night when Finn hugged me around the neck from behind, it was the Lord's way of letting me know He and Finn love me.
