A Special Day

For many, June 14th is Flag Day.  For me, June 14th marks the day my cousin's son would celebrate a birthday.  This is the second of many times that this day will pass without candles and cake and celebration.  Last year, I filled a basket with items (a Saint Nicholas icon, candles, books, etc) to mark the day.  This year, I made this little bracelet with pictures of her husband and 3 children.  A tradition I hope to continue, giving her a token of remembrance, because for me, his memory is still alive and I still want to celebrate his birth and the blessing of his life.  May his memory be eternal.

In love and recovery,
