One Month

Hard to believe one month has gone by. In 6 more minutes, it will be exactly one month since my sweet baby boy left this Earth and went to play with our Heavenly Father. My heart is so heavy and some days are harder than others. Today was a hard day emotionally, but it was more about confusion than actual sadness.

I went to the American Heart Association Heart Walk today. I expected to honor Tommy and to have a peaceful day remembering him with others that loved him. It was NOT that way! Although I didn't cry, I almost did many times. I felt so lost. Not ONE thing was said about those that have lost their battle. I was so disappointed. I don't know what is going to happen next year, but if I ever participate again, I will make it my business to have an Angel table set up. We need to remember why we are in this fight to begin with.

The time is now 10:20 pm. Exactly one month ago at this moment, my sweet Angel Tommy lost his battle with Congenital Heart Defects. He fought courageously and that needs to be remembered.

I love you, my sweet baby. I will never forget you.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. He will always be in your heart and family--I know this from experience.
