8 Months

Today it is eight months since Aaron passed away. In a week and a half it's a year since Noah passed away.   A year!  Where did that year go!? It's hard to believe it and it gets harder every day to live without them. 

For Aaron's funeral Jalen and I put together some photos from Aaron's life to music, so we could play it in the foyer while people were coming in.   It was so hard to quickly come up with some songs but we knew we had to choose an Oasis one as they were Aaron's favourite band.   We chose the song 'Perfect' because the message is what Aaron always wanted his students to remember - that they should believe in themselves no matter what.  The last song we chose - 'Without You' was popular at the time and was exactly how we were feeling - that we couldn't live without him.

Thank you to Kim who helped me convert the clip out so I can finally share it on here. It's not great quality, but I wanted to share it on here so the boys can watch it whenever they want.  It's quite long but has some great photos from Aaron's early years (when the boys say he looks like a girl :) and lots with his students from school.

Thank you so much to everyone who has voted for my blog in the top 25 Australian Mum blogs competition.   I'm blown away by how much support we have.  I'm currently coming third.  There is no prize - just recognition for being one of the top 25 Aussie Mum blogs (who were nominated - I'm sure there are so many more that deserve to be there but haven't been nominated).

There is still ten days to go until the competition is finished, so please keep voting.  You can vote once every 24 hours.  You can vote by going here or to the link at the top of my blog.


  1. What a wonderful video, Lisa. You and Jay did a great job. A true love story...I was touched!

  3. What a beautiful video!!! You are an amazing woman!!

  4. You are actually Number one now Lisa, right where you deserve to be, inspiring us all. Keep on trucking lovely. xxx

  5. Beautiful video, Lisa. Thanks for sharing.

  6. 8 months and nearly 1 year... I don't know what to say about that. Maybe what you said 'crazy'. That kind of sums up all the feelings. x

  7. Time is a strange thing hey. Feel so much for you Lisa and love ya. I ALWAYS think of Aaron when I hear Oasis, think of him with a lot of things actually. He definitely isnt going to fade away xx (damn I cant see the verification code... tears!)

  8. I put those songs on my playlist, and I just cry whenever I am in the car, and an Oasis song comes on.
    Last night, I knew today was eight months since Aaron left us, and I couldn't sleep, because I was thinking about Noah and everything that happened on that day, at the beach and how happy he was.
    I still am in total shock about it.
    Time has seemed to have stood still.
    Know that my arms are wrapped around your heart always.
    I love you more than you will ever know, and Zi miss Aaron so much.
    Where has that year gone since Noah slipped away?
    Love Mum.

  9. So many emotions. So much love so very evident in every photo. Miss him so much.

  10. This is SO beautiful and precious, Lisa! Wow! What a guy! Those who knew your man were indeed blessed, as those who know you are... Praying for you all continuously! With love in Christ... Naomi G.


  11. How beautiful that you got time on this earth with Noah and Aaron. Two special and really lovely fellas. I think about you every day and your precious eternal family. What a wonderful reunion of souls it will be one day.

  12. I pray for you that with time things will get easier. I can't even imagine what it must be like for you, but know that there are some sad things that happen in our lives that are very hard to deal with and I know that feeling. You are an amazing person and an amazing mum. All you can really do is keep going one day at a time. Sending you love and light.

  13. Darn - work blocked the clip, I will be sure to watch it at home where I can have a good cry.

    I just went to vote today and you are #1!!!! woohoo!

    I carry you in my heart today.....

  14. We don't know each other, I'm only a reader of your blog. But it looks like I know you, because you're such a good writer, and you have lovely pictures. When I saw your video, there was a smile on my face, he was such a lovely man. The last song, I was was crying, for your lost.
    You're such a strong woman, I'm praying for you and your sons!
