I can’t believe it’s already that time again. This Saturday will be the second time we host the Light the Night With Love sky lantern release. One more day!
I know many of you follow me on facebook, but just in case I wanted to mention this here. Plus, hopefully one day my kiddos can visit this little blog and learn all about this amazing night that was inspired by their big sister.
This Saturday, my dear friend Amanda and I will be hosting a sky lantern release. It will be held in Katy, TX at Mary Jo Peckham Park at 7 p.m. We have almost twice as many families joining us as we did last year! It’s equally amazing as it is heartbreaking. There are over 700 names from children gone too soon (from around the world) that are represented on the lanterns.
We look forward to this magical night. Seeing the evening sky lit up with these lanterns is seriously one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. To me it’s like a picture of her soul going up to heaven, and letting her go all over again. It does make me sad but it also in a strange way makes me smile. I think about her in Heaven, like for real. And that is just a thought that I never get tired of. It’s what keeps me going.
If you haven’t already, you can join us by adding your child’s name to the lantern here. (the form sometimes takes a moment to load)
And, if you’re in the area, or up for a road trip (!!!), we’d love to have you. You can find our location here.
***Our event also has a facebook page of it’s own!
