The little things

I'm happy to say I'm doing very well today. Last night almost proved to be a bad one, but it turned out so great!

I had gone to my mother's house to visit and let Aiden run around with my dad. We stayed for 3hrs. or so, and then left. When I got home, I took Aiden up to his room as he had fallen asleep on the car ride home. Afterwards, I went back to my car to get my purse. As I picked up my purse I saw some tissue paper (the kind you put in gift bags and such), I did a double take, thinking, "What the heck is that?!" I touched it and felt that something was obviously wrapped in it. I opened it and saw a picture frame.
I pulled it out and there was a poem called "My Angel Mom & Dad". I scanned over it, still confused as to where it came from. My eyes quickly shot down to the bottom of the poem where it said,

Cameron David
Born sleeping on July 31, 2008

I immediately started bawling! They were happy tears though. I clutched the picture frame to my chest as I cried. Then it hit me that I hadn't even read the entire poem yet. As soon as my eyes were clear enough to see again, I read it.

Thank you mom and dad, is what I would want to say
As I grew inside you mommy, I felt your love each day

I'm sorry for the sorrow and the pain you're going through
Please do not feel guilty, there was nothing you could do

Just know that I'm in heaven now, and your angel I will be
My angel mom, my angel dad, I know you cared for me

I'm a little angel now and I hope your heart will mend
And the love you feel for me, never has to end

Hold me in your memory and in your hearts forever
Until the day we meet again, and in heaven we're together

Feel some peace in knowing, that in heaven I am free
And my angel mom, my angel dad, you will always be.

It was my mom and brother who had gotten that for me, bless their hearts. I loved it!! That background to the poem has a little baby angel sitting on a cloud. The frame is silver with leaves all around it.
I loved the idea that Cameron looks at us as his angels for all we tried to do for him.

Not that I was having a real bad evening or anything, but it made me feel so much better! I love getting things like that! Anything that has to do with Cameron, I LOVE!
I've got 2 necklaces coming, some decals and magnets for my car, some books, etc. I'm a bit obsessed, but I've found that it's very healing for me! We've still got the tree to plant, and I can't forget his beautiful memorial that is coming up! Things are coming together quite nicely, and I just know it's going to be perfect for him!
