On Sunday, while my wife Leeza and I were cleaning up around the house, I passed by our Christmas tree and noticed a new ornament for the first time. Leeza is wonderfully creative and sentimental and had handmade an ornament with Bethany’s name on it. Bethany is the daughter God blessed us with for 9 months in the womb and 30 brief minutes outside the womb (you can read more about our journey with Bethany at jerelandleeza.com). This might sound bad, but I don’t generally think about Bethany that often these days. However, when I saw this ornament on Sunday I was stopped in my tracks and just stood there flooded with emotion. I felt robbed of being able to spend this or any other Christmas with her.
