More Space

Thank you all so much for the many many amazingly kind notes on my last entry. Since I wrote about the empty space, I feel like I notice it even more - the spot the girls leave between them. Sometimes, yes, it is just that Charlotte is annoyed by Katie and wants to be nowhere near her..... but usually I think it is the space for Jack. ;)

I am trying to write an entry for each of my girls, I want so much to talk about who they are now - what funny, smart, interesting (and exhausting, challenging, feisty.....) little girls they are. But it's taking me some time to put into words such huge personalities. So for now I will just have to post a couple cute pictures of my crazy babies.



This one we had taken for my father's birthday of the girls with their cousin Owen. I worried I would look at it and be sad, thinking this is what it would look like if Jack were here, two little girls and a sweet little boy, all together. But I don't.... I look at it and see Jack there too.... in that little empty space between K&C. See?

My heart goes out to every mom who has ever lost a child, and even more so to moms of multiples who lost one of a "set" if you don't mind thinking of it that way.

May God's love and light be with you always. Greetings from South Africa.

And your children are beautiful.

I'm so glad the picture with Owen doesn't bother you. When you posted them on FB my first thought was to wonder if it upset you. You have such a great way of looking at things and always seeing Jack. It's inspirational.

AHHH!!! Your post always make me bawl! C&K are getting so big. They are just absolutely adorable. Ditto Amanda. You have such a great way of looking at things and always seeing Jack. He is lucky to have such a great mommy.

I love your blog! This post, and the last were so nice. How amazing that there is always that space between C&K, it truly proves that Jack is there. He'll always be there.

How precious...even as young as the girls were when Jack passed, they leave that space for him. I wonder how many other pics you have posted with that space between the girls that I never picked up on.

The first time I saw this picture I immediately thought about Jack him with his sisters in this picture. You are amazing Megan and my heart goes out to you and the girls (and PJ) everyday!
