Save a Place for Me

Last night we drove out to look at the clay of William's statue. It was so hard. The guy did an excellent job but it just doesn't look like HIM. We spent hours there, changing this and tweaking that. Bless his heart, he was so patient with us.  When we left, it was closer but not exact. We have to go back in a couple of weeks to try again. Please pray that we can articulate our desire and the artist can replicate a likeness.

Michael and I had a deep discussion about heaven last night as we were driving. I feel like the next time I see William, things will be so different. I feel like death has stolen his childhood from me. I miss holding him. I was not given the opportunity to "grow out of" those sweet childhood moments until you gradually release them into maturity.

I don't know how heaven works. All I can do is trust that I'll be there soon.

Don't be mad if I cry
It just hurts so bad sometimes
'Cause everyday it's sinking in
And I have to say goodbye all over again
You know I bet it feels good to have the weight of this world off your shoulders now
I'm dreaming of the day when I'm finally there with you

Save a place for me
Save a place for me
I'll be there soon
I'll be there soon
Save a place for me
Save some grace for me
I'll be there soon
I'll be there soon

I have asked the question why
But I guess the answer's for another time
So instead I'll pray with every tear
And be thankful for the time I had you here
And I wanna live my life just like you did
Make the most of my time just like you did
And I wanna make my home up in the sky
Just like you did
Oh, but until I get there
Until I get there
