June 19

Today is June 19th.

Today is Jaxon's birthday.

And today I am thankful for that little man named Jaxon that I never got to meet.

The past six months of our lives have been blessed beyond measure because of Jaxon. His mom and dad ran to us in the hospital, they came over and sat on the floor of our living room and talked to us about anything and everything, they helped us plan the funeral that we never thought we'd need to plan, and they put their own lives on hold in the middle of a very busy season to stop and to love us well.

They never said "I understand," but more than anyone, they did understand. And more than anyone, they still do.

It's because they knew. It's because they lost their first son Jaxon before they got to meet him too.

Today I'm thankful for Jaxon. I am thankful that the Lord's Word is true.
2 Corinthians 1:3-5
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 
Thank you Lord for those who can comfort with the comfort they themselves once received from you.

Thank you Lord for Jaxon, for his story, and for using him to show us and so many others your great, great love.

  1. Now that I am weeping...thank you Brittany for remembering our sweet boy and for being such a brave role model. You are so open and honest about Hannah's life and death and what the grief and celebration of her has been. It allows me to celebrate Jaxon in a whole new way. Thank you sweet friend. You know I love you so much and am so thankful for you, for Kyle, for Hannah, and for new baby Hess!!!!
