Getting Easier?

Two years ago, Josiah's 10th Birthday, was hard.  It was probably the hardest birthday since the first one.  I sobbed in the arms of friends several times.  This year's birthday came and went with very little pain.  I guess that means I am healing and growing, but it scares me.  I don't want to think that I am forgetting him.  All I have of Josiah are my memories, and I don't want to lose those.  Perhaps I can have the memories without the pain, but the two are so intertwined that it is difficult to imagine.

Twelve Years

Happy 12th heavenly birthday, sweet Josiah.  It seems like yesterday that I held you for the first and only time, and it seems like forever.  Life has changed a lot since then, but my love for you has not. As always, we celebrated with a trip to Macaroni Grill.
I will hold you in my heart, until I can hold you in my arms again.
