The weather in Portland has been beautiful the last two days.
I can't help but think that James had a little bit to do with that.
The day he was born and died was very cold and grey.
The sunshine has really helped lift my spirits.
Lauren has been a joy to be around in the hospital. Children are wonderful. She was very sad to hear about her brother James. She didn't know what death was until yesterday. She asked to pray to him before we went to bed last night. Today at the hospital, she wanted to go to the hospital chapel to say hi to him. Although this is sad, its also comforting.
Erin continues to get better. She is walking around a bit and the color has returned to her face. Her blood tests are looking good. She is smiling.
We no doubt have a long road in healing the hurt of losing James, but after today, I know that with time and love we will get there.
