I have so enjoyed this past week having my kids (kind of) at home with me. Yes, they are teenage boys and young adults (my girls), so my home has a revolving door. I have to say we have had the best holiday. I can't believe how sweet and thoughtful everyone was to us. This was our first Thanksgiving and Christmas without Tyler and I was amazed at the love and support from others.
I have never realized how close our family really is. I know that sounds weird. I KNEW we are close, but I think we are even closer now if that is possible. I wanted to share a little bit about 2014. Well, as you know this past year and losing Tyler was beyond tough. I guess to be honest 2013 and 2014 were TOUGH. My world... our world changed when Ty was diagnosed with cancer. I had many months to prepare and knew (even though I was in denial) that nothing was working. In my heart, I truly believe the 17 months that he lived were a gift to US. It changed him in many ways and it certainly changed me. I can only say that I learned so much about faith and hope and accepting Gods will in our life. It also taught me to NEVER sweat the small things.
