First Father's Day

Holidays can feel bittersweet to lots of people for many reasons. It was not until we lost our son, Asher, that I finally understood how this could be the case. When we had the chance to head out of town to celebrate our anniversary and Cameron's first Father's Day we jumped at the opportunity. At times, particularly celebratory times for the rest of the world our hearts feel heavy. Getting away from the monotony of everyday life is always rejuvenating. Our time spent away allows us to focus on all the good in our lives, especially the love we have for each other and the wonderful life we lead.

Cameron did not spend his first Father's Day the way he had imagined many months ago. However, we did manage to eat a ginormous brunch and spend a lazy morning reading the newspaper in the sunshine. I love sharing my life with this man and watching him become a father makes life all the sweeter!

Cameron loves life, in particular delicious food and smiling!
Riding on a ferry always make you feel like you have really gone somewhere special.

Ohhh... I am so sorry to hear this... but what I love so much is the genuine and overcoming smiles on BOTH of your faces.

I haven't experienced what you have, no, but I have experienced a life turning out to be nothing like I thought it would. I have dealt with sadness and disappointment... but what I find to be most rewarding is the ability to rise above and find meaning and joy and happiness, even when our challenges make it so hard to do.

Thank you so much for sharing this... you both have warmed my heart.

And now, I'll keep going back through your archives so I can learn more about you.
