2 Years

 It has been 2 years since AmyLynne passed away.  2 years of birthdays, weddings, babies being born, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween.  2 years of the cold of winter and the heat of summer.  2 years of new school clothes, old shoes, and haircuts.  2 years of laundry, cleaning the bathroom, and doing dishes.  2 years of fights and making-up.  2 years of vacations.  2 years of family reunions.  2 years of gum sitting in my purse.  2 years of memories.

AmyLynne would be 10 years old today, how different would she look? Would she be taller? How many more teeth would she have lost? Would she still hate her hair brushed? I know Toby would still be a big part of her heart!!!

It is hard for me to think of her in Heaven, it is easier to think of my grandma helping me along and helping to make right choices, but I know AmyLynne is there watching and waiting to see what we make for this Sunday's treat.

Those 2 years of memories will soon be 3 then 4 and so on.  This month has been difficult, because it marks "years" not just A  year but 2 years so we have now made it through years without her and as hard as it will be we will make it for years to come.

Hold your children, love them, enjoy the years to come!!
