2 years

Today - 2 years ago.... we lost my brother.
A father, a son, a brother, a uncle, a nephew - a friend...and now, an angel in heaven.
That photo was taken just 4 weeks before little J was born and we were all at my house for Christmas celebration together. We were all cracking up because mom insisted on having a picture of use 3 in front of a tree or fireplace EVERY year. The ironic thing is my dad does the same at his house. Now, as a mom - I do it too!!
And in some strange, sad turn of events - I absolutely understand why...

You can't control the length of your life. Just the depth.
