Isn't that hat and bow-tie the cutest thing (besides Finn) you've ever seen? The hat is going to be a challenge to get him to wear, but I am determined. I really don't want his head to get sunburned this summer and I don't want to slime sunscreen is his hair. He wears beanies just fine, but I've never really had him wear baseball caps or other types of hats. Wish me luck!
This is the first Sunday that Finn actually got down and played with the other kids. I think he finally got the idea that this 'nursery thing' could be really fun. I'm glad he likes it more now. It makes me happy to see him happy.
I saw this quote today that I really like. It is an Eskimo proverb: "Stars are openings in heaven where our loved ones shine bright and let us know they are happy." I can't help but think that although we are sad to live a life without Rowan here, she is at peace.
Lately I've been wanting to share why we chose the song, 'A Living Prayer' by Alison Krauss, to be played at Rowan's funeral service. I've always loved bluegrass gospel music (I especially like the 'O' brother where art thou' soundtrack). It also reminds me of my Grandma Gwen. But back to why it was ultimately chosen... When Dennen and I found out that Rowan had died, we were driving back from the doctor's office and 'A Living Prayer' started playing on the CD we were listening to. I was meant to hear that song at that time. It truly made me feel that although at times we may feel so alone, our Savior and God are always there.
