This is a day I'll put aside the quirkiness to remember another day

44 years ago 

The day I held my first born baby

The day my heart melted as I looked down at his little face, kissed his cheek, held his tiny hand

The day I promised him I'd always keep him safe

 The day I knew I had someone just for me to love; a part of myself

No one could ever take him from me

This is the day I remember 

That life doesn't work out how you think it will

That someone, somewhere may have other ideas

Another plan

That my heart could die
 And yet still go on beating....

Happy Birthday Kevin

I miss you

Love mom...

Don't try to be someone else,
everybody's already taken...

Oh Jake, My heart hurts for you. I know the loss and pain become as much a part of you as the love. Just know I stand at your side and feel my hug.

You are in my thoughts and prayers. My mother and sister both buried their sons. I know the pain I feel and cannot imagine the grief that you and they endure.

Love and hugs to you.
I know firsthand after seeing My Mom lose her son that is the hardest thing for a parent to go through.
The fact that YOU are still living a life, and living it with just amazing.
I am sure that Kevin is smiling above you knowing what a wonderful person his Mama is. XOXOXOXO
