How I Wish...

Big things happen in mid-June for our family.  In mid-June 2002, Scott proposed to me.  Exactly two years later, Jack was conceived.  Exactly two years after that, Logan was born.  Two years after that we finally completed our adoption dossier for China.  And two years after that, on June 10, 2010, Des and Bri legally became members of our family. 

Here it is...mid-June two years later...I can't imagine what huge life-altering event might happen this month.  Hmmm, I think I'll buy a lottery ticket...

I'm not a very spiritual person, but the fact that my brother's birth date (in mid-June) coincides with all these amazing family events has not escaped me.  He died too young, many years ago.  I grieve for him all the time and for the relationships he and my children would have had.  Daily, Jack asks me 5 million questions about cars (what is X's top speed, is A faster than B, etc.) and I think to myself "this would have been Uncle Matt's territory!"  How I wish Jack could just call him up and ask him inane car questions...  How I wish Logan could go camping with him...  How I wish Bri could teach him Ethiopian dance moves...  How I wish Des could play hide and seek with him...

Matt, if you are reading this somehow, know that you are loved and missed.  Also, know that I'm buying a lottery ticket for your birthday and I would love a huge present!  ;)

  1. Well, I love that shot...and I know Matt is dearly missed.

    P.S. June 10th is my birthday. :)


Yeah! I love comments! Feel free to leave me one (or two or three).
But remember what your mama said..."If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
