Sleeping In On The First Snow Day

This morning we woke up to the first snow of the season. 
 We got about a half inch of snow….just enough that I had to shovel the deck and sidewalks.

Missing You My Son...Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

I miss you yesterday. I miss you today today and I will miss you tomorrow.

No matter how long it’s been since you left this world, 
there are times when it suddenly becomes so very hard for me to breathe.

I try to keep myself busy. But memories always sneak through
. Tears flow daily, sometimes several times a day.

The heartache I feel over losing you, my son, 
is the kind of heartache one can feel deep down in their bones.

I just want to hug you, to hear your voice, to hear you play the drums. 
I want to share songs, talk about your day and what the future holds. 
 I want to hear your laugh, see your smile and just be near you.

I love you son, forever and always.

Last Sunday, Shelby supervised while we put up the Christmas Tree.
 As you can see in the photo below of Shelby, being as supervisor is hard work! LOL
