Dog Heaven

Last night Becks picked out this book for one of his three bed time stories. We made it through the book, but it wasn't pretty. I tried my best to read it aloud without cracking but could not. Thankfully Becks knows how to handle an upset momma- sweet back rubs, gentle kisses, and reminders that it will all be ok.

The empty spot next to our reading chair reminds me every night of the boy we miss deeply.

ps- have you ever heard about Dog Chapel? Sadly, the artist, Stephen Huneck, creator of this amazing piece of art committed suicide one year ago on Friday 1/7/10. Dog Chapel has always been on my bucket list of places to visit. You will probably recognize his work. Stephen, you will be missed. My thoughts go out to your loved ones.
