243 days

It has been harder this past week, than it has been in a long time.  For some reason all of us are struggling with our grief this week.

It's hard to believe that it's seven months today since Aaron died.  Time is going so fast, but at the same time the days are so long - all 243 of them.   The weekends are especially long as we try to fill in the time without Aaron and Noah.

We have so many beautiful home videos of both of them.  Sometimes they make us cry, but most of the time they make us laugh and smile.  This is one of my favourites.  It was taken when Noah was really well and alert and aware. I loved those years.

Don't mind my chatting half way through the video. I'm not even sure who I'm talking to - obviously someone who was comfortable enough to just walk into our house - I think it may have been my sister Nicki.

I also love how I'm telling Aaron off towards the end of the video - it was typical us :)  I'm glad he listened and kept making Noah laugh.


  1. What a precious memory. I smiled through the whole video. Such precious memories for you and you boys!!!!
    I can't even imagine how hard this has been for you and your sons.
    Heavenly Father will help you through the most difficult times, but it will never go away, I mean the sorrow and pain.
    Just know that thousands of people are praying for you and your boys. Of course you have your mom and dad, and family.

  2. That video is so precious. I couldn't help but smile and tear up all at the same time. You can only imagine that they are both giggling and enjoying each others company in heaven now. God Bless your family!

  3. That also gave me a big grin :) Such joy.

  4. Thank you for sharing such lovely memories! What a blessing that you have such happy times to remember, and help bring light to the days that are hard.

    Sending prayers and love from the States...

  5. Lovely and precious video Lisa. Sorry to hear that you have had a bad week. Grief is/can be hard to deal with. My father died nearly 8 years after a long illness. My mother died October 2009, well, all of a sudden Friday night I was just so overcome with grief, my poor husband walked in from work and I was bawling, have been emotional off and on ever since. It will be a million times worse for you loosing a son and husband. My heart goes out to you. God Bless you Lisa and your dear boys.

  6. its so wonderful, you have these videos!!!!
    YOU always make me cry......
    many love from Germany

  7. I miss both of them very very much. I'm sorry you've had such a hard week. xoxo

  11. So sorry you've had a rough week. But I'm so glad you have videos to remind you of the good times.

    My cousin and his wife lost their baby last year; Caeli has been updating her blog and referenced this talk. Check it out, I think you'll find it relevant.
