3 Months and 2 Years
Today Oliver is three months old. We have spent the last three months soaking up every minute with him. He is a joy beyond what we had ever hoped. And yet I've come to realize that in this life our joys are mixed with sorrow. All day today I've also been thinking about my sister-in-law. It was two years ago today that her oldest son, Tyler, died. To say that Tyler was a sweet kid is an understatement. I can't remember many times when Tyler didn't have a smile on his face. Joy and sorrow mixed together on this day. And gratitude for both Oliver and Tyler.
