Today is the anniversary of Seamus Johnston’s death. And I hate that. It’s the second anniversary actually which amazes me because at times, for me, it still feels like yesterday. If you want a look back read HERE about last year’s Shoot for Seamus and HERE to see a sweet baby that benefited, but the most important post of this journey, I think, is HERE (this one is a tear jerker).
What I find fascinating though, is that this year, unlike last year, I’ve been looking forward to it. Because today we are doing the second annual Shoot for Seamus in the St. Louis Children’s Hospital NICU. So it’s not that I’m not sad today, remembering where I was two years ago with Tom and Sharon, because I am. I am heartsick for my friends. But knowing that we’re going to be able to give families in need a glimmer of joy is exciting. And knowing we’re going to laugh all day with our good friends is awesome. And looking forward to chatting at Pickles for lunch afterward is the best!
Today will be a great day but I encourage you to please please leave a comment letting Tom and Sharon that Seamus isn’t forgotten. Because he’s not.
We will be back to share today’s images soon and thanks in advance for any prayers you can offer the families we meet in the NICU and for healing for the Johnstons. I love that today fell on Easter weekend.
Still remembering your sweet Seamus!
I have been thinking about all of you all day today. I hope today was amazing as you remember Seamus through helping out these other families. I am sure it was a hard day but I hope there was also much happiness spent with friends and family as well. Cuddle that sweet baby Mac and I hope a smile appears upon your face today and tomorrow thinking about that day you all will be reunited as a family in heaven. Love to you all.
We had the pleasure of meeting you all today as my little one was photographed at Children’s. The NICU is such a special place, not a place that anyone plans on going to or a place that is ever a fun ride as you travel through, but a place that touches your heart forever. It’s people like all of you that help to brighten our days! Thank you so much
THESE ARE THE MOST ADORABLE BABY PICTURES I HAVE EVER SEEN !!!!! LOOKING AT THESE PICTURES MADE ME FEEL SO FULL OF JOY I DON’T KNOW WHICH ONE I LIKE BETTER. MOM AND BABY ARE BOTH BEAUTIFUL !!!!
LOTS OF LOVE DINA
Thank you so much for taking the time to come to Children’s this past weekend. I cant wait to see the photos of my daughter. To the Johnston family, my heart goes out to you. I know it wont ever be easy, but know that Seamus will never be forgotten.
Thanks so much
Seamus is a little person that will never be forgotten. Through the work that you all do, the inspiration, joy, comfort and support that you bring to other families he is living on. Living on in amazing and powerful ways!
Keeping all those families and the Johnstons in my thoughts and prayers today.
