Gifts from the Heart
The last post was not how I wanted to remember Mason's birthday. It took a trip to the park to renew my spirit. Simple gifts from the heart. Maverick running along with Rex by his side. And Ally plopping down on the green grass at any given moment; gazing at the clouds whispering your name. It's those gifts you left behind, we forever remember. Your everlasting memory lives on.
Your birthday should be a time to share all the miraculous gifts you left. It hit me at the park as I felt the beauty all around. The clouds in the sky brought me peace. A letter arrived in the mail about a week ago; a 46 year old man from New York, a new "look" at life. Mason gave him the gift of sight. As I walked through the park, I gazed at all the wonder. Someone else can count the petals of a flower, see the blue in the sky, watch fluffy white clouds magically change shape, watch their dog fetch a ball or a child run through a field. Most of what we take for granted. Look at the beauty around, be thankful what you see. We hope and pray that these same sights may also be true for an individual from California; as they watch the sunset over the ocean. Mason's eyes for the first time watching the waves of the ocean. Mason, I know somehow you played a part as your dream to visit California and live in New York; in a "sense" it came true.
Mason, so many gifts you've left...gifts that don't come in a box but important lessons for us all. We continue to live, love, laugh and look at life in a whole new perspective.
Not just people, but animals too; like those courageous tigers.... We see the importance of their stripes.
An encouragement to help find a CURE!! We are ready for The Head for the Cure 5K on August 28 at Corporate Woods. Your Make a Difference team keeps on growing, and can still keep growing.
Mason, I thank you for all you have taught me, forever you will inspire me.
We celebrated last night with ice cream just as you would want us too. Maverick remembering that you had been to Peachwave before. And Ally noticing the bowls were green for you, Mason. Each of us eating a green gummi bear and piling on your favorite toppings.
I was amazed when I spotted that strawberry balloon, who would of thought? But when I saw the bouquet of tiger lilies next to them I smiled, you are forever with us.
Happy Birthday we will always celebrate...
