Anything Like Me-Brad Paisley  / Sabrina Mcneil (Mom)
I remember sayin' I don't care either way
Just as long as he or she is healthy I'm okay
Then the doctor pointed to the corner of the screen
And said "You see that thing right there well you know what that means"

I started wondering who he was going to be
And I thought heaven help us if he's anything like me
He'll probably climb a tree too tall and ride his bike too fast
End up every summer wearin' something in a cast
He's gonna throw a ball and break some glass in a window down the street

He's gonna get in trouble
oh he's gonna get in fights
I'm gonna lose my temper and some sleep
It's safe to say that I'm gonna get my payback if he's anything like me
 
I can see him right now knees all skinned up
With a magnifying glass tryin' to melt the Tonka truck
Won't he be a sight with his football helmet on?
That'll be his first love 'til his first love comes along
He'll get his heart broke by the time he's in his teens
And heaven help him if he's anything like me
He'll probably stay out too late and drive his car too fast
 Get a speeding ticket he'll pay for mowing grass
He's gonna get caught skippin' class and be grounded for a week He's gonna get into trouble we're gonna get in fights
I'm gonna lose my temper and some sleep
It's safe to say that I'm gonna get my payback if he's anything like me

He's gonna love me and hate me along the way
Years are gonna fly by and I already dread the day
He's gonna hug his momma he's gonna shake my hand
He's gonna act like he can't wait to leave
But as he drives out he'll cry his eyes out if he's anything like me There's worst folks to be like oh he'll be alright if he's anything like me

( This song reminds me of the day you were born. As daddy and I sat with you in the NICU this is what we thought you would be like. You were a daddy's boy. Love you, Dylan. Love, MOM 10/28/10)

How to Believe (Ruby Summer)

Hold my hand and fly
Never say goodbye
Across an open sky
Leave the world behind
I will be alright if you stay by my side

Spring and summer
Love and laughter
We'll live happily ever after
We'll fly higher than we thought we'd be
Because you've shown me how to believe

Tiny shining star
I know who you are
You're never very far
We'll never be apart
Sparkle in my eye
Light the sky tonight

Spring and summer
Love and laughter
We'll live happily ever after
We'll fly higher than we thought we'd be
Because you've shown me how to believe
In me (me)
You've shown me how
How to believe

Fall and winter
love and laughter
We'll live happily ever after
We'll fly higher than we thought we'd be
Because you've shown me how to believe

Hold my hand and fly
Never say goodbye

So many reminders of you this morning. On the way to school your skunk made its self known in its same spot along the freeway. Ryan and I both instantly said "daddy" just how you always did. As I left the school and turned the corner there were your boats that you always pointed to. Always 3 sitting there. As I drove home I saw trees turning yellow. They were beautiful. I have been waiting for that.

I had heard some sad news last night and it brought the familiar lump again. Thank you for lifting my spirits this morning. Instead of crying when I saw all these reminders I smiled.

Love you and miss you as always. Love MOM 10/12/10

Beautiful lyrics by Mercy Me  / Sabrina McNeil (mom)
The days will come when you don't have the strength
When all you hear is you're not worth anything
Wondering if you ever could be loved
And if they truly saw your heart they'd see too much

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are made so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured You are sacred You are His
You're beautiful

And praying that you have the heart to find
Cause you are more than what is hurting you tonight
For all the lies you've held inside so long
And they are nothing in the shadow of the cross

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are made so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured You are sacred You are His
You're beautiful

Before you ever took a breath
Long before the world began
Of all the wonders He possessed
There was one more precious
Of all the earth and skys above
You're the one He madly loves
Enough to death

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
In His eyes

You're beautiful
You were meant for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You are treasured You are sacred You are His
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You're meant for so much more than all of this
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You are treasured You are sacred You are His

If Tears Could Build a Stairway  / Sabrina McNeil (mom)  Read >>
If Tears Could Build a Stairway  / Sabrina McNeil (mom)
If tears could build a stairway
and memories a lane
I would walk right up to Heaven
and bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before I knew it
and only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness
and secret tears still flow
What it meant to love you
No one can ever know.

But now I know you want me
to mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hollowed place within my heart
is where you'll always stay.
(unknown)

Missing you buddy. Ryan says he is going to invent a broomstick that will allow us to fly up to you and bring you home.

Fish-fish died yesterday. Amazing how a little beta fish can bring a familiar ache.

I love you and miss you. Love MOM 9/27/10

Lament for a Son by N. Wolterstorff  / Sabrina McNeil (mom)
There's a hole in the world now.  In the place where he was. there's now just nothing.  A center like no other- of memory and hope and knowledge and affection which once inhabited this earth-is gone.

Only a gap remains. A perspective on this world unique in this world which once moved about within this world has been rubbed out. Only a void is left.

There's nobody now who saw just what he saw knows what he knew remembers what he remembered loves what he loved.  A person an irreplaceable person is gone.

Never again will anyone apprehend the world quite the way he did. Never again will anyone inhabit the world the way he did. Questions I have can never now get answers.

The world is emptier.  My son is gone. Only a hole remains. A Void.  A Gap.  Never to be filled.

A poem by Chanel Groom  / Chanel Groom (friend)

Your smile is so bright

It could light up the night

When you look someone in the eyes

It was a beautiful sight

Your blonde hair touched the sky

And glisened in the sunlight

You will forever be in our hearts

 

( Thank you Chanel. A beautiful poem from a beautiful friend. We will always cherish it. Love you.)

Another year. Ryan started school today. This mornings quote said: Be strong and Courageous...(deuteronomy 31:6) I am trying. I guess a part of me still thinks that I can protect them as long as they are by my side. But deep down I know that some things are out of my hands scary and comforting.

On the way to school we passed a group of trees. Some no longer thriving some very much alive. Ryan asked  me why did some of the trees die and why did some of them live. My answer was some are stronger then others. Then the usual lump in my throat made itself known. I guess that answer applies to more then just trees.

Another first has approached. You would have started preschool. You would have been in the same class as your cousin and little buddy. Though I am happy for them it has been difficult listening to the excitement and preparations. We gave your buddy the school clothes we had been saving for you. Glad that someone will get some use out of them. I didnt want to see them year after year sitting in a box just another painful reminder.

This winter will be different from the last. I know where you are. As the book I am reading says " Gone But Not Lost". It also believes scripture implies that you will grow into an adult. That has always been my belief also.

I love you Dylan. Though you will not be attending pre-school this year you already know more then any of us. That makes me smile.

Guardian Angel  / Jeana Snow-Hileman (Friend)
There's an angel up in heaven above
Who's watching over us with so much love.

He has a sweet smile and wispy blonde hair
We can feel him in our hearts he will always be there.

He has big blue eyes and he gave a silly stink eye look
We can see all of this in the pictures that we took.

We love him so very much and we miss him too
But he has a special job that God gave him to do.

He's our guardian angel so special to our family
He's your big brother Dylan known as Stinky D.

With love,
Jeana Snow-Hileman

Sissy feel asleep in you room this morning. I didn't realize how hard it was going to be when I turned the mobile on for her. Hearing the music made my heart hurt. As I hid in the corner and watched her fall asleep she looked up and smiled at something. I like to think it was you. I love you. Love MOM. 8/18/10 Close

Hi buddy just really missing you. Time has not made this any easier. I wish you were here........ With everything we do as a family I constantly imagine you by our side. What you would be doing with your little sister what you would be playing with your big brother. Then reality sets in and I see all they are missing out on not having you here. I watch other siblings playing together fighting with each other and it breaks me heart all over again. I love you. Love Mom. 8/11/10 Close

Thinking of you. I look around and everytime I see an older blonde child I wonder what you would be like. What would your voice sound like? What kind of toys would you be into. You would have started pre-school this fall. I dont think I would have been ready for that just yet. But in my mind you will be forever 2 years old.  Ryan asked if you will grow into an adult in heaven.  I wonder myself what you will be like when I finally see you again. I still dream of that day. Seeing you again for the first time. But now the tears wont be of hurt sadness pain. They will be of joy. And you will tell me all about your life. I love you Dylan. Love MOM    8/4/2010
