Due Date

Celebrating today the brief life of our Michael Gerard.
Today would have been his due date
and I am grateful.
Oh so grateful for him.
I can feel the graces from his prayers
washing over our family 
showering us with the love of Heaven.
And what sweet love it is.
I am grateful for his big sister, Ellen
who he prays with unceasingly.
I am grateful for big brother Dominic
who is such a joy.
Who teaches me about the love of God everyday.
I am grateful for the new life growing in my womb.
Precious, sweet, little.
Growing every day.
Mostly I am grateful for the love of a man
who created all these wonderful children with me.
I am blessed.
God is good.
