a year without you

It's new years eve. The end of 2009. The beginning of 2010.

This also means that we have now competed an entire year without Brayden. Yes, it has been almost 19 months since Brayden died... but 2009 was the first 'calendar' year that he was not with us. Brayden never lived to see 2009... and now that year too has come and gone. Just one more random thought I catch my self thinking about... one more fact to file away, one more truth to swallow.

Life is moving on...

It is time to look ahead... to get excited about the hope we have for the future. I am praying that 2010 becomes the year of positive steps for us as a family. A year for changes, a year for hope, and a year for reaching out... to make something beautiful out of the pain. To touch other lives and help families either avoid this journey, or have strength to walk it, but not alone.

Brayden will remain alive on our hearts... and will continue to touch people... even though the calendar moves on.

To making a difference in 2010...
