Being Grateful

My house burned down in June. We lost everything we owned. I cried for a week and then told myself to move on… I still cry sometimes though.

Today it was raining all day. We were stuck in our house the rental all day. It bothers me that I don’t have all the little momentos I was saving – hospital bracelets,  hand and foot prints, a list  Zach’s first words and funny sayings, his first drawing of a smiley face, homemade Christmas decorations… you get the point.

My home videos of Zach as a baby, his first “army” crawl, first Christmas, myself pregnant with Ben, Ben’s first baby moments… destroyed. I can play them back in my mind  but for Zach and Ben, they will never see those. Sad.

On the other hand, my boys are fine. Both alive, healthy and so happy. Nothing else matters. Their smiles and the sound of their laugh reminds me that life is good perfect.

Here are 2 stories of Zach receiving a replacement trophy from the SF Giants. 🙂 He was so excited!
