MARCH MADNESS + SADNESS

  • It sounds like you had a special celebration for Naethyn's angelversary.  I understand the guilt that never goes away. I still feel it too and I know it will always be there. It is so sweet that D and T like to share their brother with others.  You are so right that they will carry on his memory.

    I love your scavenger hunt idea! By the way, Hunter is a bit like D.  He got a dollar from the tooth fairy and said "it's ok, the rest of the day will be better". I was cracking up (and cringing a little).

    Hugs,

    Marissa

  • No words but many hugs and a lot of love.

  • Sending you so much love and HUGS!  Wish I could hug you in person!  Please know that I am thinking about you!  

    Much Love,

    Samantha

  • hugs to you.  Those days, weeks leading up to their anniversary I think are sometimes harder than the actual day.  I too can get my mind set on having a certain thing especially during the "hard" weeks and nothing will stop me from getting them.  It's like we are making sure we get something and have some sort of control...How proud your boys are of their brother.  I like how children can just share and put things so simply when we struggle so much with it.  Nicki

  • Hi Lindsay,

    I love how you celebrated Naethyn's angelversary, and I smiled when you talked about how your boys are remembering their brother. Kaelin does the same thing at times, and insists on having a picture of them in her room.

    No matter how many years go by, the anger, sadness and every other emotion will continue to exist. I don't think it's something that any of us angel parents can ever make go away. Those emotions, to me, are a reminder of the love we will always have for our angels even though they aren't where we want them to be.

    I hope your walk goes well. Ours is April 24. Many hugs and much love to you.

  • Sounds like you had a nice angelversary for Naethyn. I love how his brothers proudly shared the story of their brother. How sweet! The what ifs also creep into my mind, especially around angelversary time. It's hard not to still be angry about losing a child. For me I'm still trying to dissect and analyze the situation. I'm not sure if that will ever go away no matter how much time passes. Thinking of you!
