My friend in the Netherlands and I started a tradition after Jeremiah's death of ringing chimes (because he loved chimes) in remembrance on the 30th. Through the years it has grown and people all over the world ring chimes, play instruments and sing for Jeremiah and their own lost loved ones. I will be ringing my chimes for Jeremiah and Jonathan this year. (I lost my middle son also a few months ago) I would like to invite everyone to make your own sounds to heaven for my sons and or your own lost loved ones. We do this at the same exact moments as an uplifting of beautiful sounds to heaven from all over the world. I hope you join us for one, two or all of the times.The times will be.........
midnight PST (Monday 29th to Tuesday 30th)
10am PST (Tuesday 30th)
4pm PST (Tuesday 30th)
and 11pm PST (Tuesday 30th)

******My first ringing of the chimes was cold and dark. I cried for my loss, pain and loneliness for my sons. I felt so alone in the cold darkness that I wanted to scream and fill the empty space with it, but then I realized I wasn't alone. That somewhere in the world there was at least one other person doing the same thing as me at that exact moment. You saved me! I love you Jeremiah and Jonathan you are two of the five best things I've ever done. My two boys, you were so different. Jeremiah my gentle giant with a poets heart. Jonathan my funny, strong, slightly plaintive son. Your births told a lot about how you were as boys. Jeremiah you took time coming into the world, not wanting to leave your warm security. Giving me gentle loving movements to let me know you were fine, just not ready to be in the world yet. When you were finally born you cried pitifully until we touched each other. Jonathan you blasted into the world like a freight train (Less than 3 hours labor) like tadaaaa I'm born lets get on with it! Not a peep, no crying at all like you had it all under control. The world is less with you gone, I miss you both more than I could ever say with words!

******My youngest daughter Shayna rang the chimes for our second time. Pain and comfort, a weird combination to get at the same time.


My husband Rick rang the third chimes. Our candle is burning on our table too. I love you boys. God I miss you!

Thank you, so much, for the watch.  Your art is so stunning and you are one of my favorite artists.  I have a couple of your charts from HAED cross stitch, but I have been lazy with my stitching.  :blush:  One of the charts is "Enchantment Of the Wolf."  I just adore it.  :heart:
