The Kiss

Posted on June 30, 2016 at 7:40 PM

I couldn’t have been more excited for them. In the weeks prior, I told Kathy they would absolutely lose their minds over this precious gift! It would be unlike anything they had ever experienced. The due date was squeezed between a run of notable June birthdays and special events. I lifted them in prayer daily, waiting for the announcement to come by text or social media. Finally, the photo popped up first thing in the morning on my newsfeed and the pics started downloading on my phone.

It took my breath away and my heart soared knowing the indescribable joy of welcoming the next generation. Swaddled in a nursery blanket, his newborn face filled the screen. Michael, one of Kevin’s best buddies, married now, had become a father for the first time.

As the sands of time shifted to accommodate this milestone, I felt myself losing ground. This time, after so many years of “firsts”, it was not the tides of grief nor the sandy grit of envy that brought me to my knees. Swept under by a rogue wave of emotion, tears rushed to the shores of my cheeks in recognition of a knowing deep within my soul.

I am certain, that in a final send off and blessing, Kevin kissed the forehead of Sawyer James just moments before he dropped from heaven into the arms of his parents.
