For many of you, today is best known as April Fools. A day to prank and joke. I will admit, I love a good laugh. Probably more than I should. But for me today is about so much more. Today is the first day of April and Donate Life Month. Which for someone who has been on the liver transplant list for 5 years now, is kind of a big day.
As I watched the boys play, tears welling up in my eyes. Just when I needed a laugh he says, "lets take pictures of our funny faces!"
Alex wasn't up for the selfies, but I thought to myself, I just want to have a photo of the two of us
together, just in case. I tried to really smile, but the though chilled me to my bones.
And Even David humored me with a few! These are my favorite. In the 15 years we have been together I could could photos of us on two hands. And for those of you who know him, this is his best shot at a smile.
Things have been slow around here, I know. I've been going though so much and instead of just getting it out, which was the whole purpose of this blog in the first place, I have been holding it in. I'm ready to start really enjoying life again. And I ready to get back to sharing my journey here with the world. Starting right now.
I'm going to get dressed and get my boys from school. Hug them tight, kiss their cute faces and tell them just how much I love them. What I love most, is that they will let me do it without wiping away my kisses and squirming out of my hugs. Enjoy it while I can right!?
