3 Months

Luke, I can't believe it's already been three months since I got to hold you in my arms! I miss you. I miss you terribly. 

Today I was determined to get up in church during testimony meeting and talk about you. I was able to tell people that you have taught me of the reality of our bodies needing spirits, of the plan of salvation, and of the necessity of Christ's atonement in order to return to be with God. I don't usually get too emotional when I talk about you, but I was afraid I was going to start crying. I didn't.  

I love you so much and am so grateful for you, because of the many things that you have been able to teach me as well as other people too. It's incredible to think that you never lived on this earth, besides your 9 months inside of me, but you've made a difference in so many lives. It reminds me of those famous painters that no one thought twice about ...until they were gone. I've thought about you plenty while you were here and since you've been gone, but I think so many others have thought about you since you've been gone. Your life was so short, but because of it, you've been able to give so much to those of us that love you. 

Time is a funny thing. It seems like it has flown by, yet at the same time I think, Only three months have past? How much longer must I wait until I meet you? One thing is for sure, I still can't wait to meet you!

I love you, my sweet little Luke.

Love, your mommy.
