Lately, there have been many friends, family members, and individuals around me who have lost someone close to them. Either a grandparent, parent, sibling, child, friend, niece, nephew...it always brings back memories of when we lost our little Kegan. There are days when I struggle to hold back tears and make it through the day. I try to stay strong for Brady, Cooper, and myself. Ever since Cooper was born it has been a struggle for me. I thought that it would become easier than it was...but I find it's harder. I now know what it will be like after this life to raise him, but I often think about the "what if." What would it be like to have a boy who would be turning 3 in June? What would he look like? What would he be saying?
So, for something for me to occupy my thoughts I look at my friends blogs. Today was a special day. A lady who I barely know had this video on her blog. For a spiritual uplift I watched it. This video made me rethink my personal situation. It reminded me of how I am truly grateful to have experienced the short time with our son and the power of prayer. Today is a good day. I need to remember that I am not alone. This lady is a strong woman. She is living in pain every day and struggling with finding herself again. She is inspiring. I would imagine that my bad days would be considered a great day to her.
