Holy grief

/ 8 March 2007

Meta writes of her recent experience sitting with a mother whose newborn had just died. She brings tears to my eyes — but good ones, with hope intermingled. I wish I could have been this eloquent for my sister, more than ten years ago, when Jered Michael Paulson Keener made his brief appearance in our reality. We remember him with holy grief, here so briefly: born July 18, 1996, died July 19, 1996.
