Today is one of the two days of the year that I dread seeing. Three years ago we said goodbye to our beautiful little boy. The anniversaries (today, his birthday) always bring the emotions flooding back just like it was yesterday. I figure we'll be going through a lot of tissues today. I am hoping I can at least go in his room and find some good memories that might bring a little smile as well.
Here's Eli with his crab toy. In his short time with us, it was his favorite and the crab has become somewhat of a symbol of remembrance for us. We've bought hundreds of them so that the infants in the children's hospital can have a little brightness in their stay. This year we will be donating 108 of them once they arrive next week. I hope the tradition is one that we can keep up for a while as it feels like we are doing something to keep his spirit alive.
I wasn't planning on stamping today, but perhaps I should dust off Crab & Company and make up some cards to drop off at Ronald McDonald House. If I do, I'll be sure to share them with you.
