Remembering to Pay it Forward

How can it have been a year aleady? It seems like it was just yesterday and a million years, all at the same time. It’s weird how that happens.

There is still this missing piece in our lives. And it’s so hard to fill it. Because what we want, we can’t have.

But we’ve gotten through the long list of firsts TOGETHER  …birthdays,  celebrations,  weddings, events, back to school, holidays, new babies, etc and we’ve included her along the way. Some obvious and some not-so-obvious. …
