We just completed our 2nd anniversary of the loss of our oldest son Joshua. My family is totally lame. they dont call or talk about him anymore. if i bring it up i am told just get over it. my husbands family is the oposite. they ask how are you doing. what are you doing this year to honor him. my family doesnt want me visiting his crash site. while my husbands family asks what have i added. this year we are putting up a cross with both childrens names on the cross my son josh and his friend jake. i will plant more flowers. and i have a rock garden to add to in my back yard. i miss him the same today as the day he went home to Jesus. and one day i will put the whole story on because there is so much to his story that i want to share.
we now comfort other parents on their loss and when they see and hear our story they seem to have a weight lifted off their shoulders. like its ok to cry. and its ok to still celebrate their birthday. everyone take a moment and just think of the happiest craziest thing your child did. hold it cherish it love it share it.
