He called them "Sunshines." Whenever we saw a sunflower in a picture or in passing, Webb squealed with delight, "Mama, I see a Sunshine!" I now see these "Sunshines" as sweet reminders of my son in heaven, now as wild and free as the flowers he so loved. I gave sunflower seeds to friends and family this summer to sow with tears, knowing that we will one day reap with joy. I love seeing so many of these seeds break through darkness to find and face the sun.
"Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him." Psalm 126:5-6
