Phantom pains are what someone who has lost a limb feels. It will feel like the limb hurts even though it isn't there. I have phantom pains too. My arms ache. This isnt' figurative. They really do ache. It is a real feeling that I can't describe, but it comes from not being able to hold my little boy. I miss his running to me and jumping in my arms. I can still feel what it feels like to pick him up and hold him close. My arms ache for that.
This picture was taken the weekend of his baptism at our friends Alex and Tanya's who were kind enough to let us use their residence to host a feast in honor of Knox and his baptism.
