{My GlAdIaToR vAlEnTiNe}

To my little Valentine, Macsen! How proud your mommy is of you. Your life is a blessing in this heart of mine, and is touching other hearts with blessings everyday. I imagine you playing and laughing in a place that my tiny imagination can not fathom. Warmth on your sweet face, a twinkle in those big brown eyes, and a mischievous, gummy grin as you play with Jesus. I am so grateful you will never know heartbreak, pain, fear, deception, or betrayal. Peace washes over me when I remember that.

A Valentine is someone you love, that you want to express that love to in a way that you don't normally get to. Your sisters hear their mommy tell them dozens of times a day how much I love them. So it is to YOU that I give this Valentine.

Macsen Danforth, I love you so very much! You are my little Gladiator. A mighty warrior for my King, and more of a man then anything I have ever known! I am so honored to call you my son! Until we meet again heart will fly!

I found your blog and out of all the blogs I've come across about child loss you may be the closest to me! We live in Seattle. My sister lives in Portland (attending Multnoma Bible college). I love love the art you create. I may want to order one for a friend who's baby died at 6 weeks from intestinal ischemia. I may even want to get one for myself for our Grace-maybe on her birthday.
Thank you in Christ,
