My sweet friend Laura said it best ‎"If you wanna label something as "strong" in this is the energy it takes to play normal life, the energy it takes to hold in everything until you are in the right place and time... that takes so much energy (and it slowly kills you as it waits for your attention)."


  1. No one should ever HAVE to be that strong. I am sorry that I cant take your pain away but please know my family is lifting your family in prayer. Just remember your lil man would not want his mommy and daddy to suffer. He knows how much you love him so. Peace and Love be with you.

  2. So true..... Strength does not come from joy but from soul wrenching loss, it is the weight of grief that never gets lighter no matter how much time passes, this weight u have to carry and it gets heavier and you have no choice but to carry it which makes you appear "stronger" on the outside as your soul slowly dies trying to gasp for air.

    To you sweet warrior parents, I know a link in your family chain is gone,leaving you forever broken and I know your soul is dying as you try to appear normal and give your child that is with you a "normal" life. I still dont understand whythis happens to such good people and I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I hope you know the lords love which is hard to remember while you are living in "hell". I pray that you find moments of peace where you know HE will make your family whole again just as he has made your lil precious angel whole. Prayers to you and yours. Alexa

  3. As someone once told me as we journeyed down a similar path as yours, "When you're going through hell...keep going." My heart has ached for you since I came across your blog. I have thought of you and your sweet boy constantly and have shed tears in his honor. I am so sorry that you are going through this. I am so sorry that Travis is gone. He seemed like such a joy. I wish that I could give you a big hug and express how sorry that I am. Just know that prayers are being lifted to give you strength.
