nor will I ever be in the same place I was just 2 short weeks ago.
trials change us.
for awhile, I won't be quite as carefree,
the sun won't shine as brightly.
someday it will stop:
that sick, sinking feeling deep in my gut
that comes every time I think of Wyatt
I wish, with all of my heart,
I could reach into Brittany and Ili's minds
and remove the pain.
I know from experience, that
I will find a place to put all of this;
it is a place that forces me to rely on my faith....more than ever
and I will be stronger than before
and a little more pragmatic
and hopefully, tempered and resilient and more faithful...
to face the next trial
because the next trial will come
and oh how I hope it comes to me and not to my loved ones, because that is so much harder to take.
my dear Wyatt,
I miss you. I love you. You are, and always will be, an important part of our family. You must be a most valiant spirit, far beyond that of my own. You came to exceptional parents; Papa and I will remain with them until we all, anxiously, meet you again.
I want you to know that your short time here served a purpose in my life. You touched me deeply. You made my goal, to live again with my family and Father in Heaven, very personal. I rededicate myself to that goal and promise you I will live the best life I can, so that I can be with you again.
I married my high school sweetheart 34 years ago in the LDS Temple. I have 4 children (3 married, and a 14 year old) and 6 grandchildren. I lived my entire life in California, until 6 years ago. I now reside in San Antonio, Texas. The most important thing to me is my family; I have invested the most in them and it has paid great dividends. I love doing anything creative that beautifies my surroundings and I love nature. I minored in Art and majored in Interior Design at BYU, yet, my profession is a Tax Preparer.
