26 days (for the 3rd time)

This is the third time now that my family will wade through the muck that is these 26 days. During this time the first year we had Leo with us! It was a fantastic 26 days.

Last year I experienced the full spectrum of emotions during those very thick 26 days. It was important to me to attempt to remember everything about Leo’s life.

This year I feel numb. I am so sad that my sweet little boy is no longer with us. It breaks my heart to know that I am here and he is not. The flood of thoughts of what could have been crash into my chest further jarring my soul.

God had a plan for Leo, it’s the only thing that makes sense to me. I see that plan resonating in every single person who knew him. Leo brought happiness to many and in his death brought closure to many. I believe that Leo was sent here to strengthen aw d bless my family. He was brought here to lead Angela to Jesus. He was bought here to encourage and remind me that there is so much more to life then deadlines.

To my sweet Baby Leo, I love you forever.
To my family, you are so important to me. We will get through this.
To my friends, thank you for being there for me and my family.
To my God, lead me in your direction.

26 days again… Here we go.
