It is times like these that make me want to hold my family just a little tighter and longer and let them know just how much I love them.
Tonight I read one of my favorite books to my son, "Wherever you Are: My Love Will Find You" by Nancy Tillman. This book always makes me cry, but this time it felt even more emotional.
It is the perfect snuggly book to read right before bed. It helps to convey the love a parent can have for a child. The illustrations are beautiful, serene scenes of animals and children together and the sweet rhyming words have a beautiful song-like quality.
One of my favorite lines is:
"You are my angel, my darling, my star...and my love will find you wherever you are."
And tonight the book spoke to me a little differently, I just couldn't help but think about my wonderful nana and how much she loved me. I feel I can take comfort in knowing that wherever I am her love will find me.
