Big day!

Today is the anniversary of Mom's death.  It has been 10 years.  It seems like yesterday in so many ways but in so many others it seems forever ago.  My mom and dad are the ones on the far right.  Her hair looks crazy in this picture! I hated this day for several years.  It was so hard just to make it through the day.  I honestly believe she hated how badly I felt every year on this day.  So four years ago she sent me a gift.  A beautiful, wonderful gift and his name is AIDEN.  Aiden wasn't due until November 7th (which is my birthday) so he came quite early.  He struggled for quite a few weeks in NICU but he pulled through and as most of you know he is the light of my life!
I still cry on this day.  I still struggle but I know she doesn't want me to.  I know she wants me to be happy so in just a few hours I will call that little boy up and I will sing Happy Birthday to him and he will talk to me and my day will be wonderful after that.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE MAN!!  Grandma loves you more than words can say.
