Angels on Your Pillow

First let me start out by saying that I am deeming myself the "Worst Blogger Ever".  I know I am supposed to be posting something everyday, but things have been a little crazy lately between work and a sick (with a cold) husband and keeping up with sweet baby Styles....

So today has been a bit of an emotional day.  Have you ever heard something that just hits you like a ton of bricks and you just can't shake it?  This morning I heard a tragic story from a friend whose friends just lost their one year old baby boy Bryce.  I never had the honor of meeting this little boy or his parents, but for some reason, this news just seems to be having a profound effect on me. Maybe its because I am a new mom and this love I have for Styles is unlike anything else I have ever felt, and the thought of ever losing him is just inconceivable.  It makes me feel helpless, like there is nothing I can do to take away the pain that this family is feeling.  The best I can do is send them my thoughts and prayers. And ask that anyone who reads this to do the same.

My husband's family had this tradition that when he and his sisters went to sleep at night they would get tucked in and his parents would say "angels on your pillow".  These angels would protect them while they slept.  Every night since Styles was born I always kiss him goodnight and tell him "angels on your pillow" in hopes that he will be protected and have the sweetest dreams.

So in sticking with my family tradition, goodnight baby Bryce.... Angels on your pillow.....
