Sonshine: My Journey After the Loss of My Son

Sunday, October 11, 2015

Happy 27th birthday dear Andy! It's hard to believe it's our fifth year without you on your birthday. Some things that happened since your last birthday: I got your phone back, Jingles died...I'm sure you and Jingles are together again. Give her a kiss from me. I have a new kitten named Violet. She's a Maine Coon and so cute and sweet. Your peach tree has grown a ton. Molly got married. I still miss you. I got a flat screen TV, FINALLY haha! Your flowers that are named after you came back this spring, better than ever. I found your baby book with your footprints and hair from your first haircut and all your birthday cards from your first 5 years. Jeff and I went to Germany, Austria, and Hungary on a river cruise. I went would have loved that. The Big Bad Wolf is gone from Busch Gardens...your first ever. That made me sad. Like another one of our adventures together is gone. We had a little get together for you yesterday. You have some awesome decorations on your grave. I still see all your friends, which is wonderful. I guess that's all I can think of right now. Did I mention I miss you?

You were the greatest blessing of my life, and I'm so grateful to have had you be (the best) part of it, even if it was for way too short a time. Can't wait to see you again. Be joyful on the other side. Look after me. You are my sunshine! I love you baby.
