It's been several years since my little boy passed to the other size of the veil, that beautiful partition between Heaven and Earth, and you know, I just miss him. Years and I still just long to hold him. I know that his spirit is alive and well, every now and then I get a taste of his powerful spirit, but it's only a glimpse. I know he's close to our family and that he's aware of us, but we are still so separate. Gravity holds me here while he is now boundless. Time keeps passing for me, while he has moved to eternity. 

I know the separation is important. I know the veil maintains the test that is mortality. As the scholar, Neal A. Maxwell so beautifully said, "Without the veil, our brief mortal walk in a darkening world would lose its meaning-for one would scarcely carry a flashlight of faith at noonday and in the presence of the Light of the World" (Patience, 1979). But, sometimes the longing of a mother for her child is so deep, you just wish you could reach across if only for a moment.

I know I'm still a work in progress, and I've got a lot left to do here on Earth. I'm thankful for the three other amazing children I get to raise. I'm thankful for the knowledge of a loving, wise, Father in Heaven. who has so carefully selected a particular course for me. I know "all things work together for good to them that love God" (Romans 8:28) and that in the end I will only see His wisdom and mercy. But for now...I just miss him.
