13 years ago...


With thanksgiving past and then Hallowe'en just over and new babies being born and then snow and Christmas (yikes) starting to peak around the corner ...I realize that I needed to see pictures of Graham because their is always a hole in me and even though the pain is easier to handle most times, it does catch up to me.

My previous post I listed the "5 things I would be doing 10 years ago" that was a stumper for me and so I found these pictures and this is what my boys were doing "13" years ago..{savour this}


1. lac pelletier fishing, 2. racing Freddy the turtle, 3. CATS, 4. all dressed up, 5. sheets of crisp snow, 6. nintendo and ninja turtles

How fortunate I am to have these times to treasure...(too precious)

Very precious pictures Donna. It's sometimes so hard to recall all those "not big" moments in our lives. Those fleeting minutes we spent with ones that are no longer with us and the ones that are growing older so fast before our eyes. Thank goodness for our pictures that we can take out, reminisce and bring back those special moments to the front of our memories. Nintendo and Ninja turtles! Sounds very familiar! Great pictures Donna! Thank you so much for sharing.

Great pics, Donna! When I am racing around after my kids and picking at them continuously about cleaning their rooms, feeding the dog....I think about you - how lucky I am to have both of my kids with me and how I need to treasure every moment, even the frustrating ones! You are a brave woman with all you've been through, Donna. Sharla

beautiful post....one filled with love. i can feel the love that you have for your boys and i thank you for sharing it. i love to see the photos of your moments together. moments of laughter, love, and joy as a family...it is so precious. however, whether the photos are from 13 years ago or yesterday the theme is still the same...one of togetherness and love as a family. the strength of the human spirit is awe inspiring...and you are proof of it...with every smile that crosses your face and with every tear that may fall you inspire me with your strength and endurance to keep moving forward while you honour the life of your sweet child. {hugs to you my friend}

First of all I had the same ninja turtle chair or maybe my brother did, brought back some memories of my child hood. Donna your a very strong woman and I admire your strength. thank you for sharing this blog. Sometimes in life I get caught up in the smaller things in life and forget the really important things. Have a good day Donna
