A special day without you there
After 6 months of planning, lots of tears, a few conflicts and me trying not to spin around in circles, Tim and I are finally married. We beat the odds and are still together after losing the most important person in our world. We decided from the get go that we would not have children in our wedding party, for one reason there are way to many nieces and nephews to co-operate but also because the only ring bearer I wanted was Jackson. I tried to imagine the day if he was there, in his suit matching his dad's. Him sitting at the head table in between us, getting food all over his nice suit and probably Tim's and my dress. Dancing with his cousins and then attacking the cupcakes and candy buffet, then eventually crashing around 9. Even though that is not how the day went I still felt his presence every step of the way. We paid tribute to our son on our special day through a prayer and lit a candle. We made sure that our wedding pictures had a piece of him present. The day was "perfect" and went fairly smoothly. I have a feeling our little man had something do with.
