My wish


Layne and I have a song for each of our boys. Something that struck us as something we wanted to dedicate so to speak to them. Kaels song was My Wish by Rascal Flatts. The words are written below. We love this song, we sang it to Kael all of the time. The words were just what we wanted for him. We never knew for sure what kind of a life he would live, never knew how long we would have with him so this matched perfectly. When Kael passed away we were going to have this sung at his funeral but the painst couldnt quite get it so before the song we replaced it with was sung the words to My Wish were read. It was so beautiful! The boys including Landon know that this is Kaels song whenever we hear it on the radio, I have it on my phone etc. Landon asks for Kaels song and loves to dance to it. Over the weekend Layne and I attended a wedding for a couple whom we are good friends with. The guy is actually Laynes boss. When it came time for dancing this was the song that was played for the daddy/daugther dance. While it was beautiful it was also heart breaking. As soon as we heard the intro Layne and I both knew what it was. He grabbed my hand and started rubbing it as we spoke the words together. It was quite an emotional/special moment. It was all I could do to not break down and cry. I asked Layne if we should go outside actually but he looked at me and said we can do this.. so we stayed, we listened to the song, we watched the dance and held each other while speaking the words. I couldnt help myself but think wed never have this moment with Kael, he wont get married here on earth, he wont get his dance... but we can dance for him! It really got me to thinking about the future. How crazy to think our boys will one day get married and that little piece that will always be missing. Its so crazy how these things come out of the blue. A little strike even in the happiest of moments. We didnt let it get us down we still jived the night away and had a good time  but it sure was a emotional/amazing few minutes. The song is beautiful. Take a moment to listen to it, really listen to the words.. its exactly what we wished/still wish for our sweet little man!!



I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you wanna go,
And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile.
But more than anything, more than anything...

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

I hope you never look back, but you never forget,
All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
And you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
And always give more than you take.
But more than anything, yeah, more than anything...

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish. Yeah, yeah.

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish (my wish, for you).

This is my wish (my wish, for you)
I hope you know somebody loves you (my wish, for you).
May all your dreams stay big (my wish, for you). http://youtu.be/bhrCc8VCHns

You have me in tears. That is a beautiful song and so glad that it is Kael's song. You did go sticking through the whole song...I usually turn into a mess and can't stay and I wish that I could stay in those moments. So proud of you. Thinking of you ((hugs))

This is so beautiful. This is a picture of what it looks like to walk through life, together, always with that piece missing, but still clinging to one another, still hoping and healing. This is what it looks like to support one another in grief. This is what love looks like. The love a parents have for a child. The love a husband and wife have for one another. It is heart-wrenching and hard, full of aching and missing, but also sweet, precious, and tender. Your Kael's life forever part of your lives. In beautiful ways. Thank you for sharing this incredible memory. You have so touched my heart in the wee hours of this morning when I cannot sleep. Love to you both...and continued prayers as you navigate this life together.
