quote - different face

Holidays are here and the anniversary of Sawyer’s death is this week no matter how much I will it not to happen.  I cannot change the fact that he is dead.  I want to share a few videos that are helping me get through the days (sometimes even with a smile).

P.S. Neis means miracle.

One of my thoughtful sister in-laws sent me this one last week.  You may have seen it already but I wanted to share just in case you missed it. . .

I hope these make you smile too.

This year the 1st day of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving fall on the same day.  Apparently, this only happens once every 79,000 years or something.  So, I am thankful it is happening during my lifetime.  As I have mentioned before, since Jake and then Sawyer have died the holidays can be difficult.  So, by combining 2 of them maybe this year will be easier.

I am so very thankful for family and friends who have stood by us during the best and worst of times of our lives.  I am certain that I would not be able to get through this journey alone.  I will continue to always be very thankful for the time that we did have with Jake and Sawyer.  I try not to dwell on the Hanukkahs and Thanksgivings that we did not have and will never have with them.  Some days are just harder than others.

Happy Hanukkah!  Happy Thanksgiving!  And, Happy Thanksgivukkah to those of you celebrating both!
