I tried to get away with not putting grief on my blog. I tried, but have failed. Today was my nephew Joshua's 11th birthday. The birthday boy wasnt' here to celebrate... as many of you know he died tragically July 20 after jumping into the swollen Platte River and accidently drowning. I've tended to try to avoid the sadness, and not subject anyone else to the reality by keeping it out of here since the event, but after reading my dear sister Sally's blog about him I just can't help but give in. Sorry to all - if it is too sad, just click. I wish we could all "just click". Make it just go away. Make the tears go away. Make it all just disappear. I have no explanations - only questions. Sally and Jeff - I'm so sorry.
I am truly grateful for every single smile that little kiddo gave me - I only wish we could have had many more. Love and hugs Sal and Jeff.
