Always Remember

One of the hardest things about a new year

another birthday

the passing of more time...

is the fear of forgetting.

I feel as though so many things are already hard to remember

What did he smell like?

What did his laugh sound like?

What did he feel like?

I wish I could run my fingers through his little curls

kiss his forehead

cuddle him for hours. 

Today I try to remember

wishing I could buy a cake

plan a party and have presents to rip open

but instead Im just missing him. 

And making sure that everyone around me... always remembers.

I just wanted you to know that we think about your sweet boy and pray for your family. It has been a long time, but the children still talk and ask about him. They say that our Annabelle is in heaven pushing him on the swing. Wouldn't that be a precious sight. May your day be blessed. :)
