Easter Expectations

I imagined this Easter to be much different than last year. I expected the grief to subside. I expected happiness in life and in the holiday to resurface. It isn't and it hasn't. I should be posting a picture of my two curious, (probably clumsy if they're anything like me) full of life boys running through the grass in their oh so cute, way too expensive cuddly Easter outfits with appliqued fuzzy lambs and bunnies in search of the golden egg. But I'm not and I can't. This will have to do instead. Perhaps next year.

Happy Birthday Sam T. We miss you!

That is the cutest bunny ever.

I wish Easter was different for you. and me too. Holidays are really hard, aren't they?

Thank you so much for Sam's wishes! :) Today at church, I was a lot stronger than I thought I would feel. It was Friday that was hard for me and I snapped into tears ...almost unaware they were coming. They just poured out. Then I felt this overwhelming "Sam doesn't want me to be sad" feeling. And stopped crying and just thought of him.
I am sorry easter has been hard for you. I know it is here too. I hid and colored eggs for a friends kiddo. I had to get my 'fill' of kid stuff, you know?
Well, I'm rambling. But I wish you well and think of you and Sam and Jack as often as I think of my Sam. ...Hoping you are doing better with each day.
Hugs....Holly

I am sorry you didn't get to take a million pictures of Sam and Jack yesterday. Holidays stink.

Thanks for the kind words on my blog.

I know the holidays are rough. When everyone else is buying little frilly dresses for their daughters, I just think of what should have been. it hurts.

((Hugs))

What a cute picture. The holidays are rough. I can't imagine that they will get much better. Here's to hoping.
