There are so many times I tell myself that the pain of loosing Gavin is getting a little better, but then the flood of emotions come where I remember just now much I miss my little boy. He is gone. As odd as it sounds, there are many times I have to remind myself of that. With all the suffering that is being shown on tv from the suffering in Haiti it has once again reminded me and made fresh not only my own loss but all the other families that are dealing with terminal illness of their children. I heard of a few children that have passed away this week, and although I do not know any of them, my heart hurts knowing all too well the intense pain they are feeling at this very moment.
Take time to let your heart break for people who are suffering. So many times we, including myself, choose to just ignore. Somehow it makes it easier for us to say "no" when the cashier at WaWa asks us to donate one dollar to the American Red Cross to help provide aid in Haiti. If we choose to ignore suffering, so many families walking a similar path to ours will never find the love and support we have found.
It's really sad. Today I'm choose to open my eyes and just remember -- remember that even in my own hurt and pain there are so many other's that are suffering.
