This is something that is truly very near and dear to my heart. Please indulge me as I share these thoughts on Thursday Morning.
He was and is and always will be my hero/big brother/ ok not quite daddy.
Eddie, The hole you left in my heart will never heal or be filled in any way. I am forever changed.
I miss your beautiful smile, and your laugh and the way it felt when you hugged me. I miss knowing, you always had my back. I miss you.

My third devastating brush with suicide came in 2011, with the very unexpected suicide of my nephew Michael.
Michael came into my life as an infant and enriched it in ways I am not sure he ever knew.
Like Brad, my husband and I " borrowed' Michael and his brother as often as humanly possible and it wasn't uncommon for his parents to have to come and take him back. Michael and his younger brother would often call and ask to come and live with us and in their dreams always said " when I get 18, I am coming to live with you." I never told him that by the time he was 18, he wouldn't want to but I always made sure he knew he had a place in my home.
Michael, I miss your smile, your hugs, your love and your laughter. Nobody else will ever sound like you. I miss you.

I haven't posted in Two years. That in itself, took me by surprise. It has been a most difficult 2 years.
We have been through quite a lot with medical issues, I began an new job and well, life has a way of changing your priorities at times.
During the recent Hurricane Matthew, I have been both blessed and at times felt cursed with the chain of events.
We sustained a lot of damage due to the storm and both my husband and I have both been in the hospital during the weeks after the storm.
All of a sudden, I could really relate to Job of Biblical fame. It was a series of events like no other.
The best part though is that through the Grace of God, all of the destruction has been restored, Prayers have been answered and God's fingerprints are all over everything that has happened. The fact is that Without God, we would Not have survived this storm.
God is Great Always!
I am happy to be back and posting again. I hope you will follow me as I try to rebuild this blog and get it back to the fun spot it used to be. If you are still here after all this time, Thank you.
I hope your day is wonderful. I look forward to seeing you here again. Leave me a comment and let me know you were here. I have missed you.
