Halloween...

For many people, today is a day of Fall Festivals, Trick or Treat, or anything of that nature. Don't get me wrong Halloween is about all of that at our house too but it's also about a little boy, Connor Steven. Connor is the son of my first cousin Nichole. October 31, 2003, Connor met our Lord and Savior at the young age of 3. When I think about his smile my heart simply aches. He was such a special boy. So today, as we go about our day and have fun celebrating I'm longing to be in Colorado Springs, sipping coffee by the fire with my cousin Nichole chatting about all the precious memories he left with us. In the words of Coley, "I'm feeling closer to Heaven today." Yes, Coley- me too.
