Grad Week

Just checking in to you to let you know this would be Jack's graduation week.

So far, we are doing well, even though it hurts. Andrew is keeping me active chasing after him in this intense heat, Margaret is wrapping up sophomore year, and Tim is busy at work. Tomorrow I am hanging out with another bereaved mom whose son should be graduating as well. We feel a strong kinship as we both lost our sons in freak accidents. We have no agenda. Just support and conversation
during Andrew's babysitter time.

On Sunday, Father's Day, Tim will board a plane for San Diego for work. It will be his first trip there since his trip with Jack to Legoland.



So, we are doing well. But, as always, we appreciate your prayers and support!

Thanks, Loves.

p.s. When Tim gets back, I'm heading to a blog convention in Orlando. If you will be at BlogHer, be sure to say hi! I'm usually the one holding up the wall or looking awkward.

Hi Anna,
You were so kind to return my email even though you don't know me!! I lost my son, Andrew, in March. I am still so sad and don't know what each day will bring. I wanted you to know that I am thinking of you during this time as I know how hard it must be. I will be in the same position in 2 years. I pray for you and your family for peace.

Sending love and legos and wishing I could help hold the wall up at BH. It's the first year I'm not going since I knew about it, which means I've only been to two although it feels like more as I've gone to others that I'm not going to, too. Wow, what a sentence. Hugs to you and yours, Sweets. xo

I am thankful that you have someone that you can hang out with that totally understands your heart. I am sorry for her loss also. My thoughts and prayers are with both of you and of course Tim and Margaret too.

That's a really stunning photo of Margaret and Andrew. Glad you've found a friend with a similar experience. Having other like-minded people around was helped me get through the tough times. Wishing you peace and gentleness.
