Happy Birthday to Sam!

Today is Sam’s Birthday.  I’m really trying to make it special.  I have that wonderful fake smile plastered on my face.  At 6 am he wanted presents, so at 6:15 am he got them.  We’ll have cake and ice cream as soon as I run to the store and get some.  He was allowed to hang out and sleep with the big boys last night.  He enjoyed that.  I’m trying, I really am.  I am trying to keep today upbeat, and not think about the fact that Jeff isn’t here to celebrate with us.  I’m trying to not be sad today.

  2. Dear Laura,

    You are doing sooo good, if only you knew. You will look back on this and realize it one day. You are first and foremost a wonderful mom to your kids. They are lucky to have you. Sam deserves a happy time on his birthday even if there are moments of sadness mixed in. Keep that fake smile on and have fun and make everyone laugh. Jeff would want you to and you know that he is right there with you in spirit.

    Love you,
