Clouds with silver linings. They were in our sky today, not this image, I didn't have my camera but they were very similar. They say every cloud has a silver lining but these were especially beautiful and I sure could use some silver lined clouds right about now.
Whether your child is two or thirty you always want to know they are ok, in a safe place. This question has plaqued me for over a week but the other night I had a dream. Not a normal dream, different in a way I can't explain. He tapped me on my shoulder and I looked back and there he was in his regular garb and his baseball cap. He wasn't smiling, he wasn't frowning, he had a peaceful look on his face and he opened his arms and I went into them, much like I did when he would leave me. I went into his arms and I didn't say anything and he didn't say anything and we stood there for a long time, and it was so Real, and then I woke myself up crying. It took me a moment to realize it had been a dream but every since I've had the assurance I needed to know he is ok. He is right where he should be and he is safe. And that was a gift wrapped in a silver lined cloud.
