Today was Kali's blessing day.
I'll have to admit that it was difficult to sit in church surrounded
by my children, my grandchildren, my mom and other family
members and know that someone was missing. It was all I could do to
not weep openly. I have learned over the past many months that joy
and sadness can exist at the same time. It was a joyful day to
celebrate the birth of a new grand daughter.
Kali was given the same middle name as Kristen.
I can hardly wait to share Kristen's life with Kali.
I know Kali will be so proud to share Kristen's name.
It took all day and into the night
but I finally got a picture of Kali
and she is even smiling.
