I appreciate a prayer as I have been a little down these past few days. Nathaniel would have been 15 years old on Sunday, November 10th. I recently watched an interview on The World Over/EWTN with the mom of Matti Stepanek. Raymond Arroyo, not being insensitive, simply asked Jeni Stepanek how heroic she been in handling the loss of Mattie and his siblings. Her response so real, so refreshing. I paraphrase here:
-Raymond, there is not a day that I don't cry and that I don't miss my son, my children. Grief is not something you get OVER, it is something you endure as you make your way on this journey called life. THANK YOU JENI STEPANEK for not undermining so great a loss as that of your dear sons. It permits us to embrace and not undermine our own losses.
Big hugs, love and kisses to you my sweet son Nathaniel Joseph born 11/10/97 entered into heaven 3/18/2000. I miss you dearly!!
Hey, and tell Matti hello for me!
Your loving mom,
