Caleb would have been 8 today...

My plan was just to post the picture of my bracelets, along with a link to my post from last year. But as I read again what I had written last year, and listened to the beautiful song by Laura Story, Blessings, I knew that I had to add it again this year. Because, to me, it has become "Caleb's Song"...

You are in my thoughts and prayers...I have just read last year's post. I cannot imagine how devastating this loss must have had on your family.

I don't think the loss of a child could ever get any easier. Thinking of you today xo

I love the song and agree that it is very special. I am thinking of you today as you remember little Caleb.

I'm sure the days leading up to and the days following the date reopen all of the raw emotions. Caleb will always hold a special place in your hearts. Sending prayers for all of you!

That song is beautiful, says a lot about taking the pain along with the happiness, doesn't it? Hugs to you today, Cindy, BIG hug. I'm not sure it does get easier as time goes on, I have a few of these dates that I remember clear as a bell receiving the news, etc., after 15 years, 20 years. Blessings to you, the family, and your little Angel.

Thank you for posting this song. I so very much needed it today. Although I had my mom many years more than you had your beloved Caleb, it's been two years today since she went home and for some reason today is harder then last year was. Hugs.
