My Resolutions


I promise to never darken your spirit with my sorrow.

I promise to make you as proud of me as I am of you.

I promise to focus on the time I had with you, not the time I'll have without you.

I promise to share your story with everyone I know.

I promise to not turn our house into your shrine.

I promise to do things for me, as though you were here and healthy.

I promise to treat your brothers as I treated you.

I promise to allow your loss to make our family stronger instead of breaking us down.

I promise to live each day as though there is no tomorrow.

I promise to remember what is really important.

I promise to see you every time I look into your daddy's eyes and not be sad.

Happy New Years Baby.


Forever Your Mom
