Today is my youngest son's birthday. His first birthday celebration since DH/daddy passed away. It was an extremely difficult week leading up to this big day....I did not realize that it was probably due to the birthday. I thought I was just on the usual roller coaster of emotions. So bad I was sick to my stomach the way I felt the day he passed and week of the funeral. I thought how am I ever going to survive this if I keep having setbacks that bring me back to the day he passed away. I just wish I could smile a genuine smile, the way I used to on their birthdays. I want to be happy, at least on their special days....our children deserve happiness. I ask God for help everyday....most times I think where is God to help me with this awful pain ...then I remind myself that God is helping- the weight of my loss is too much to work on 'happiness'. God is helping me get through the day and make sure I am their to help meet the needs of my children. Happiness will come later....God is helping me get up everyday and survive.
