I can not believe its almost Christmas. When my son died January 31, 2009 I had to have people tell me to breath. I couldn't even imagine living without him. Yet its almost a year and not a day goes by I don't think about him. When i opened this room I didnt know what to expect. I guess part of me wanted to be the strength of this room little did I know that all of you have been my strength. God gave me a few gifts and one of them is encouraging people. But, all of you have encouraged me. Your strength, your support your willingness to be open about such a tragic loss. For that I am grateful to all of you. I would like to express my sympathy to all of you for your loss and as the holiday approaches would like to open up some discussion on how your coping through the holidays, any family traditions you have and any ideas you have on how to remember our children who have passed. I pray for each of you for whatever your believes are that you find peace in your life and that you live life to the full. May your hearts not be harden by tragedy but may your hearts be open to still continue to give and feel love. "It's not waiting for the storm to pass...... It's learning to dance in the rain"
