This morning I woke up to my cute McKay calling me. She asked how I was doing and then we talked about our family day. We are meeting to go to the grave and then dinner as a family. I only wish all of our kids were here today. 

Right after we hung up, there was a knock on my bedroom door. It was baby Ty. He came in before he went to school. Ty walked over to my side of the bed.  I said, "hey bud, what's up?" and he replied I just wanted to do this and gave me the BIGGEST strong hug.  So you can see the tender feelings are here and they don't go away.

It's been TWO years. I decided to share the video that was put together in Tyler's honor for his funeral. I watched it again this morning with Brian by my side. I proudly showed him the video and mentioned the kids and things about Tyler. 

Grief is ongoing... it is not something that simply just goes away. The truth is LOVE is love and you don't stop loving someone because they died. TODAY we are going to unite as a family to celebrate Tyler. I am going to go buy flowers for the grave and am just so thankful for my belief that Ty is our angel.

It's hard because of days like today. I would like to just stay in bed. I want to just allow myself to do nothing but "feel" all that comes. I can't even describe what I mean. I hope that makes sense. However, I am going to my office and prepare for the office sale this Friday. I know Tyler would be happy that I am doing this. I know he is helping me STILL as my business and family go on. So if you want to come on Friday... all the details are in my previous post.

Now go hug and share your love to the people who you love the most!!!

Love this. I need to find my hubbys video and watch with my kids. My husband passed away 6 years ago. In his anniversary date we go to the beach, each of us gets a ballon to write our love letter to him. We pickup dinner, write 5 memories on index cards and read them out loud. We laugh. We cry. We say a prayer. Last year we spent the day at the zoo and cruising in Waikiki as a reminder of what my husband love to do. We live in Hawaii and we always go the zoo when our 3 kids were small and now I have a grandson so it's extra special. It's never easy. Being a single parent was not part my plan but life goes on. My kids knows my struggles and we continue to move forward as a family just as you have. Thank you for sharing your story and wish you and your family love. Aloha😂😘

Beautiful--and the music was so perfect. I know you have such sweet memories to hold on to. And you have Brian to be by your side on good days and on the tough days. He is remarkable!
