Birthday Bald Eagle by Jessica
I was driving down Wonderland Road in London Ontario on September 5th, 2013. I had just visited my sons Jacob and Ty at Woodland Cemetery. Both my boys passed away as infants and September 5th was Jacob's 2nd Birthday. I saw what I thought at first was a hawk (we always see those) but I then took notice to the white. At first I saw the white tail and thought it was a hawk with a white tail but as I drove by and caught a glimpse of the bird from the side and then head on, it was most certainly a bald eagle. I've never seen one in my 30 years of life in nature (just in zoos) so I just know my birthday boy sent me that bald eagle. It was close to the Greenway pollution plant so I have no doubt it was a bald eagle that I saw.
Thank you Jacob for an awesome birthday gift, I couldn't have asked for anything more special (other then for you to be here)
Oh and I literally stood in Unger's Market for 15 minutes while hoards of women swarmed around Bee to tell me how beautiful, angelic, lovely, doll like she is. One lady even asked to take her picture because Bee took her breath away.
On a day I feel such sadness my heart is also filled with love and joy. I've cried so many tears today but some have been happy. Bee most certainly has made Jacob's birthday a bit easier. It reminds me why we went through everything we did after two great losses. It reminds me why we kept going and trying again. It reminds me of the beauty in life, the stillness certain moments create and the peace you find in the dark.
