Camp NewFriends

Well Son I think you would be very proud of what the Foundation has been doing. We have been growing...slowly but we have been growing just like you wished.
  I was out to lunch with some of the girls from the office a few weeks ago. We walked in to take our seat and noticed a  was a group of Ladies from the Red Hat Society sitting behind us. I turned to check out some of the hats and noticed a woman who seemed to have plexiform neurofibromas on the outside of her skin. I thought to myself.

Thanksgiving...a new begning

  This year will mark the 2nd year without you here for Thanksgiving. It's still just as hard not being able to see your smiling face or seeing you out of the corner of my eye sneeking into the olives to put them on all your fingers.
  I remember are last Thanksgiving together. Everyone was with us up at Nana's house and you asked if you could give the Thanksgiving prayer. You did such a wonderful job. I remember you tried so hard to stay up and visit with everyone. I knew you were hurting and were so very tired and just wanted to rest, but you kept pushing on.

Learning to Deal

I thought about you again last night...I think about you every night, but last night was different. I could see you in your bed as if you were right in front of me again on your last day here. Moments before you took your last breath.
  We all came in in small groups of two to say our good byes to you and you waited so patiently for your Father and your Gramma Judy and Grampa Sherod to get there to tell them good bye. When they came in the room Chris and I got up and let them come in...I shut the door behind me and moments later your Gramma Judy came back out to get me to tell me you were gone.

How long does it take to go through the greeving process

For those of you who are in my shoes will know what I'm talking about. I often wonder how long does it take to go through the grieving process? Well I found the answer....Everyone one is different and there is no time frame to stop grieving.  Because you lost a loved on doesn't mean you have say 6 months to get over it.
  Allot of times people forget that you go home everyday and have to face the fact that you child is never coming home. Or that you will never be able to hold them, kiss them and tell them goodnight.

Just trying to get through it all

For those who know me know I've been running from the fact that my son is gone now for almost 2 years. I have recently stopped running and started to write down all my thoughts and feelings to share with others. As hard as it is for me I know it is what I need to do.
   You know that saying...Time heals all. Ya I don't know about that one. I think this void in my heart will always be there. I am truely greatful for the time I did have with my son, but I can say I wanted more time with him.

It's been almost 2 years.....

It has been almost 2 years since my son has past. I miss him just as much today as I did yesterday and the day he passed. I will never forget the phone call I received Aug. 4th, 2008...the day they told me he had Cancer. I can still hear the Dr.'s voice to this day as he tried to comfort me in the news I was about to receive. That day changed me life forever as well as my families.
  I was working when I got that call.....I felt my world crashing around me and this heavy feeling of numbness.
