4 Years Now

The years keep coming, and we keep on surviving.
Not only do we survive, we thrive,
and grow, and create, and love,
and laugh, and play,
and remember.

I never thought it would be possible,
but it is happening.
Step by weary step,
day by endless day,
year after transforming year.
We live and remember,
with excruciating gratitude,
our Gus.

Love you, Mel! I can't believe it's been 4 years. Gus is so sweet, and I will always remember him, too.

Thank you for these beautiful words. I found your blog through the story you shared on Mormon Mommy Wars. This week is my baby boy's second angelversary. He died of SIDS when he was four months old. Thank you for being a strength to others and for putting in words how I am feeling during this difficult time of year.
