Would you hold my hand if I saw you in Heaven?
Challenge 4 was to complete a layout with at least three things artsy and/or altered AND you must journal something from your soul. This is something that still hurts to this day which I never talk about.
I have spent the majority of my life married to my best friend. We have been very happy and have been blessed with 2 fantastic children. We have also suffered the loss of a child. Our son Jason was stillborn almost 31 years ago. This was a very hard time for me, and I still grieve and think of him often. We were given a chance to hold him, but it wasn't long enough. I never got a picture of him as we didn't expect I would be delivering him when I went to the hospital on Easter Sunday in 1978. I recently saw an article about photographers who photograph for parents their babies that have died; the hospitals call the photographers who then come to the hospital and take pictures for the family. Oh how I wish they did that back then. His birthday, which he would have shared with my brother, is always a very hard day for me. I visit his grave on his birthday and take him flowers.
Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart, have you begging please…begging please
