Wow, Amy -- that is such a powerful piece of writing. I hope your hopes are fulfilled one day....



What a nice moment. What a thoughtful son.

My guess is the lawn, the dirt on his hands from a freshly planted tree, or the shavings from trees as he trimmed.

This whole thing is hard. Hugs to you.


Amy, this is so beautiful. Brought tears to my eyes.


It is beautiful writing - and sentiments.


ditto Keshet.

I'm wiping away tears from my eyes. Thank you for sharing that with us and reminding us moms the importance of sharing the small things with our children for posterity's sake. (((HUGS)))


I love this. Love love love.

Hi Amy, The entire post was so sweet. As it happens, my dad died 26 years ago today, and just reading that felt like a tribute to him. Time heals all wounds, so they say, but 26 years later, I still miss him.

Thanks for sharing, you have(and are)such a gift.


Beautiful and poignant, Amy. Good for Jacob. I do love him--he's a GREAT young man (wow, I can't say kid anymore). He's learning from you, which is wonderful.

What a beautiful post! I pray I have enough of those kinds of moments with my sons.
