Our Ezra

I know we are all thinking of Sarah and David today - holding them close and wishing that today was a very different day. I know we are thinking of that beautiful little boy Ezra with that smile on his face. And I know that we feel that horrible feeling in the pit of our stomachs and deep in our hearts when we think about what happened.

I know that Sarah knows that we are thinking of her. I know that somehow all the warm thoughts and sad thoughts and feelings of support and strength are floating around the world, wrapping around her and holding her tight.

I found Sarah a little while after Alice died. She has been truly wonderful. She is sweet and generous and kind and I wish that we had meet under very different circumstances. Perhaps sitting next to each other on a flight one day (I used to fly a lot in the US) ? Or when she decided to holiday in NSW? Who knows. I suppose the way we met has meant that we bypassed the chit chat and the getting to know you stuff and we talk about things that I would never say to my mother or my sister. It means I can write things to her that I know so few people in the 'other' world will ever understand.

I wish Sarah and David all the strength and love in the world.

Lovely post for Sarah and David. I'm missing Ezra with everybody else, too.
