    All right, I do have some surprises for you, but first, I want to talk about Zeke's birthday.  
    Nine years ago a baby was born.  I loved him for his courage and strength.  I loved him even after he left me.  Now I must say, that over the years, I've grown to hate his birthday.
    It felt like someone ripped out my soul the day my son died, but through it all, I gained a greater sense of compassion and the patience I lacked.  I realized that although death will claim what it owns, I will always have memories of friends who loved me, a family who supported me in their quirkiness, and a God who never left me.
    Yes, I hated my son's birthday, but not anymore.  Because you, dear readers, have turned this into an exciting day.  It is today I give you a piece of myself--and a piece of my son.
    Today, my journal from that time has been published, and November 18th is a blessing once again for me.

    From ashes to ashes . . .

    From dust to dust . . .

    From sorrow to joy!

    Thank you!

    In honor of Zeke, because after every storm, there is a golden sky.

Happy Birthday, Zeke.  You are so loved!
