Two Years

Two years ago today we said goodbye to our precious son…

To think that we haven’t held him and squeezed him and kissed him and watched him learn and listened to his voice in two years takes my breath. It stings because life has kept going...even on the days when we want to stay under the covers and want time to freeze, it still keeps going. It’s just wrong that Cooper has been gone from us for two whole years. It’s wrong that he has a baby sister and he’s not here to have to share his toys with her. It’s wrong that our “family” pictures will never be of our entire family.

Two years ago today, we said goodbye to our son, but we know it's not forever.

There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t miss Coopie. There isn’t a thing we do that we don’t stop and wish he was with us. He is a constant in our thoughts and in our hearts. He will always be a part of our family, just not here with us. But we know one day we'll be together in Heaven and everything will be made perfect.

Here we are two years later, and just like everyone else, we have good days and bad days. We have happy days and sad days. There are still moments and days that are harder than others.

Having made it the past two years, I feel like there’s a lot I could say, but I just don’t have the gumption to say it today… except for:
We miss our boy...and God is good.

Psalm 18:1 (The Message)
“I love you, GOD— you make me strong.”
