If anyone wondered why my parents weren’t in any of my graduation or surprise party pictures, this will explain—–
Their anniversary fell on the same weekend, so dad had planned a trip with mom to Niagara Falls before they realized the dates would conflict.
While they were on their trip, mom said she looked everywhere for a penny..our special little way of feeling Nick’s presence.
We had taken all four of the boys to this very same spot with mom and dad in 1999, so it brought back lots of memories for my mom.
Remembering Nick in his stroller NOT happy when mom took his picture next to a Canadian Mounty,
Remembering Nick LOVING the huge ice cream cones we bought one evening,
Remembering Nick loving to play with his action “figguhs” (that’s what he called his little super heroes) in the motor home on the way… I found some pictures online of the falls…it’s hard to find pictures that really do it justice. It’s just one of those natural wonders that takes your breath away in real life. The sound of the water as it rushes over the falls simply amazes me even now. The power of the falls, the reality that water plummets over these rocks 24/7 and yet never empties out the river above or floods the river below simply leaves me speechless.
Thank you, God, for touching my mom’s heart in such a special way!
