Four years earlier ... and now.

Four years earlier.

It was a beautiful hot day,

Full of sunshine, not a cloud in the sky.

Our hearts, so full, they overflowed with happiness,

Watching as my little man had a blast riding rides,

Or playing peek-a-boo from behind a tree.

And perfect photo ops that are so sweet to look back on,

It felt like we had forever left together.

And this time,

A piece of our heart was missing.

But still thankful for the blessing I have now.

It's just that it didn't feel quite right,
A void that was only felt between Andy & I.

The gloominess of the day, was fitting for such a missing presence.

I don't really know what to say. Expect that your post moved me. It made me cry. And I am thinking about all of you.

There are no words for me to say. Your post was very beautiful.

It's so sad to look back at those photos. You get to enjoy all those same experiences with Layne now, but his big brother should be there with you reliving it.

Without saying it I already know you know it, but I'm going to say it anyway... just take in every second with Layne and enjoy it as much as possible. If something ever happened to Layne I would not want to see you heartbroken over him because you didn't take in these moments to their fullest.

We love you! And you are an AMAZING Mama!

Also, I do love how you never forget to remember Landan, like other people we know who never include their lost children. That just shows what an extra good Mama you are! xoxo
