Good times, part 2

I love being around my family. They were so understanding of my moodiness (grief is so annoyingly unpredictable sometimes). I loved having time to work on Benjamin's scrapbook, and read "Breaking Dawn", and cook lots of good food, and talk and talk and talk with my sisters and brothers and parents. Miss you guys!!! Ya'll are the best family in the world!

That should be a song: "Good times in Arizona". I love the ensuing verses: "Good times in Texas", "Good times in Arkansas", "Good times in Utah", "Good times in Florida", "Good times in Hawaii", "Good times in Costa Rica". Sheesh!

I have a sister- who lost a baby preterm as well. It's been a journey for the whole family. I love the way they honor the place in their family for him, Gabriel. Every year on his "angelversary" they do something in his honor and memory. It differs from year to year. One year they walked in the March of Dimes, one year they planted a tree, one year they simply had a picnic. She started a website to help other grieving families... and one thing on her site- are quotes she found helpful while scrapbooking for him.
I just thought you might be interessted.
I don't know if it ever gets easier. I'm sorry for your loss.

We loved being around you and your family! We can't wait for the next time our paths cross. Hopefully very soon!
Love, Jen

Thanks, Laura, for this sweet comment. Just to clarify for the sake of record-keeping, Benjamin was full-term, just over 38 weeks, when he died. I love those ideas your family has to honor your nephew! That is so wonderful. I would love to get one of those ribbons--what a great idea!
