This is what we gave my parents for Christmas and we also made one for ourselves. I wouldn't have given it to anyone but my Mom said she wanted one. I was quite amazed at how big this book turned out. It's the blog from day one to Wyatt's birthday this year. I was very shocked to see how thick it ended up being. I couldn't believe I had written that much because seriously, I really don't enjoy writing and I don't feel like writing is something I'm very good at. It ended up being 266 pages long. Wow! It's amazing what grief will do.
As I look at this book I see the thousands of tears that were shed as I wrote and posted each post and each picture. I look at this book and see what it has done for me to help me through the journey of grief. I look at this book and marvel at all the amazing people I've meet through the blog. I look at this book and see the love that people have shown me and my family. I look at this book and see my little boy that my heart aches for and will until the day I die. I look at this book and wonder how much longer I will continue to write. I look at this book and wonder if anyone will ever read it. I look at this book and wonder if someday it might help Tyler, Emily or Hayley as they miss their little brother and go through their moments of grief. I look at this book and hope my kids know how much I love their little brother and I how much I equally love them. I look at this book and see what a blessing it has been for me. I look at this book and see the many tender mercies that I've been blessed with. I look at this book and hope that anyone that might read it will know the deep love and gratitude I have for Jesus Christ and for the incredible amount of hope he gives me. And most of all I look at this book and hope anyone that sees it will know how much I love Wyatt and how I will always miss him.
