Somedays it is hard to believe that things will ever be different, but someday we will need to remember…

Remember how Nathaniel always loved his rocking horse…

Remember when you only had one

Remember when Alexander wouldn’t smile for the camera…

Remember when life felt absolutely crazy…

Remember when your arms were sore from always holding someone…

And your bellies were sore from always laughing…

Remember the kisses that squished your cheeks and left slobbery marks that you had to wipe off…

I am so glad that I get to help you remember.

(JoAnn, Nathaniel and Alexander 2008 – 2010.)

  3. I wish you could have taken photos like those wonderful ones to help me remember. People always tell you it will all fly by but who ever believes that it actually will. What treasures your pictures are for all who want to remember.
