Breakfast

I still remember it as if it were yesterday. That mind picture will never leave me. I boxed it with bows and put it in my heart.


We have a chair in our kitchen. All our children have used it. Yesterday Anna finally decided that she is too big for it now. The chair is taller than a kitchen chair, and is meant to be used to aid in reaching higher places.

The chair was in the middle of the kitchen; I didn't know what to do with it. I figured if I suggested to Brent that he use it, he wouldn't. A minute later I found him gleefully pushing his chair into the middle of the room and putting the other one at his place at the table. I was delighted, mostly because it has sides and he can't escape it very easily.


But seeing Brent on the chair triggered my memory. He looks more like Kira than any of the other children. His hair is a little darker and not highlighted in blonde. His eyes are not quite so big. And, of course, his temperament is the most similar to Kira's. Naughty but quick to forgive. Ferocious but soft.


But it's the hair that got me. When she sat on the chair in the morning at our other house, the sunshine would stream into the window on her hair. I see her there in my mind...grinning from ear to ear, waiting for her pancakes.

Love that girl!

  1. Have been thinking of you at this time. Can hardly believe that it is 5 years that Dad went HOME and 4 for Kira. God bless as you continue on with your precious family.
    Love, Kathy

  3. I thought of you these past few days, as we were in the area and I recalled the pictures of Kira in the stairway at the suites when we visited last July. I prayed for you and for peace in your heart as you remember your precious daughter.

  5. In nature we learn that God is powerful, that he enjoys variety, loves beauty, is organized, and is wise and creative.

  12. I pity you. You need to get over your anger and bitterness. You're not the only one that has grief.
    It's manifesting in your kids. They're depressed and moody. Hope your husband is more stable than you.
