Two Years

I have no eloquent words or interesting insights into my world today.

I choose not to give today too much weight. I certainly don’t miss him any more today than I did yesterday. Yet, I cannot deny that I start on my third year of living without Nathan today.


We are currently in Illinois at my in-laws house. Tomorrow Luke and I will go up to Chicago without kids for two nights. How I wish Nathan was here with us.

  1. Eric & I are thinking about you guys. Hope you have a nice stay in Illinois. 🙂

  2. *tears* ((HUG)) It sucks to be without our children, doesn't it ? I miss my little girl (and her daddy) every day. This past week was the 4 year anniversary of her death, and 8 months since her daddy's. 😦

  3. Thinking of you & your whole family today, as always, as every day.

  4. Thinking of all of you today.

  5. I'm glad you are with family on this heartbreaking anniversary. I hope your happier memories of Nathan are starting to be replaced by the harder ones of him when he was so sick. He had such an amazing spirit and was truly a gift to all us of who were lucky enough to know him. Hugs to Julia and Lauren!with love, Ouida

  7. Sending you love, love,love from CA. Please ask the girls to catch a firefly for me.

  8. Thinking of you and Nathan today, as I do every day. How is it possible that I so miss a little boy I only knew through his mother's blogs? I can assure you no matter how much time passes, I will never forget Nathan. Thank you for sharing his precious life with so many and allowing others to be touched by his story. Rita

  9. Hard to believe it's two years already. Some times it seems the realization that "Nathan's not here" is still so fresh all the time, it must have happened just last week, but then other times it seems the sadness has been here for ever. I still often think about the photo you posted with the news. The photo of when you first brought him home.

  10. Susan and Luke,I really mixed up my words–so sorry. I'm sure you know what I meant–that your happier memories are hopefully replacing the sadder ones. Ouida

  14. I never had the chance to meet Nathan in person but I was blessed to know him through your words. He will not be forgotten.

  15. Thinking of you all and remembering Nathan always.

  16. I think fresh thoughts of Nathan regularly. Two years is not much in geologic time, but so long in the heart of a mother.
