Red Balloon

I had a nice surprise this morning.  As I was heading downstairs to start the day, I was greeted by a red balloon near the top of the stairs.  Alexander loved balloons and one of the first things he learned from the book Good Night Moon was the red balloon.

Prior to the tot lot dedication on May 3, I filled a red balloon with helium to make sure the balloons would work for the balloon release.  I hadn’t seen the balloon for a few weeks and quite frankly had forgotten it was in the house until I saw it this morning.

I had some stuff going on today that I was a little worried about and seeing the balloon made me smile.  It was as though Alexander was telling me that it was going to be ok.

I love you Alexander.  Thanks for the balloon hello today.

  1. Hi Dan and Michelle- I haven’t checked in on this site in a bit, but of course you both as well as Alexander are never far from my thoughts. I am glad you were able to get a hello, hug and a smile form him in the form if a red balloon. I am sure he was there with you.

  2. Such a wonderful gift. I love it when things like that happen, too!

    Big hugs,
    Natalie’s mom
