Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

our angel

Sweet Austin has started asking about Forrest.  He will see his picture and ask "Who's that?".  I will explain to him that its his brother and he will say "brudder".
The other day we were in Miller's room (nursery for all 3 of my boys) and Austin looks up at the shelf with Forrest's special things on it and notices Forrest's giraffe.  He runs into our room and grabs the other giraffe (I still sleep with Forrest's giraffe and blanket every night) and says mommy's blanket.
We were driving in the car home from bible study and he says "My mommy".  I asked him who else's mommy am I and he says Me Mo's mommy (Miller) and Say tee's mommy (Sadie-the dog).  I tell him I am also Forrest's mommy and ask if he knows who Forrest is.  He says "brudder".
I look forward to telling Austin and Miller stories about their big brother and the huge impact he made on our lives and the lives of so many others.

Today marks 3 years and 4 months since he's been gone.  I miss him like it was yesterday.
