Happy birthday Jacob

My third son would be seven today.  I'm sitting here at my desk looking at a picture of his sweet little face, and I remember the day that he was born so vividly.  My third longest labor, but the hardest by far.  He was so tiny.  I can smile now as I remember the hours that we held him.  His short life had so much meaning, and was not in vain.  

This is a picture of a beautiful stained glass piece that Pam made for me when she came to visit me for the first time for my birthday a few years ago.  It is a white tulip-our flower for Jacob (she knew the meaning of the white tulip for us). The picture does not do the piece justice.

Happy birthday little guy.
