Those Hard Days..I see those footprints..

On today I sit and wonder how my life would've been without some of the tragic events that I had to deal with.  And living through these events I can say that God has been by my side the whole way and I am so grateful to him for just that.  And I have to remind myself not to sweat the small stuff.

On this day today it has been 10 long years since you were taken away from me, but I will never forget the impact you had on my life and the memories. There is not a day that goes by that I dont think about you or wish that I was just having a really bad dream. So even though your time was cut short you will always be #1 in my heart mommy loves you and misses you dearly and hope to see you in heaven one day son. R.I.P. Bryan Joseph Hawthorne 1/2/00-8/26/01
