Three Months


It's hard to believe that Ethan has been with the Lord for three months as of today. My heart is usually very heavy when the 5th of each month arrives. But today was a nice family and church day. Ethan was on our minds a lot, as he is everyday, but I had a peaceful day. This is the first "anniversary" of his passing that has been not only bearable, but actually enjoyable. Afterall, Ethan is surrounded in His Glory...in a place we can only imagine.

Please keep us in prayer. We need it to make it through these next few months as we approach birthdays, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Specifically, please pray for Evan and his grief. He dearly misses his Ethan. Pray for Josh and his new job. I can't imagine how hard it is to start a new job (with more responsibility) and still be only weeks into losing a child. And lastly, please pray for me, as I journey this new season of life. It's been tough. I know God is good, and He will see my family and I through.

I hope to post more often now that we have moved into our house and have internet.

God bless you all!

Shannon, Cameron and I think about you guys often. Cameron told me to hurry up and read this before he started to cry I told him that it's okay to cry and let go, it means we loved him. I will continue to pray for you and your boys!! Love and hugs friend!

Oh Nicole, I love you guys!!

Cameron: There is no shame or anything bad about crying. You may have heard the boys at school say boys can't cry. This simply isn't true. God gave men and women the ability to cry so that we can cope and get through really hard stuff...like death. You have mine and your mommy's permission to cry! It's okay to be sad and miss Ethan. It's very sad that he's not here anymore. But just know that he is in heaven with Jesus, and he is looking down with love upon all of us! Love, Miss Shannon :o)
