Mad times!

Mad times! When the boys we little and life was so crazy and filled with questions, washing, tight hugs, kindy, lunches, school things, hats, shoes, dirt, dishes, sticky hands, funny kisses, hair cuts, toys and fun! These three were my world, I was a full time stay at home mum, I still am and they still are. And when looking at this photo I grieve, not only for Sam, my middle boy taken to soon by cancer but for these other two little guys. I guess all parents grieve for a time gone by, of little people sitting on your lap of all that demanding attention they deserve. I have mentioned this before, but it just grabs me when I see my boys so happy playing together. James is now a teenager and I am not the only girl in his life! Each stage in their lives is wonderful and I love how amazing my kids are now, with all they have been through. But I do miss the crazy times, don’t get me wrong, loving the now time, but look at those three and their happy faces! Three boys!

Love and support.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it stirs so many emotions and touches people in a way that can sometimes be amazing. Our small community came together when Sam was diagnosed, I was overwhelmed with the support and love we received, I am still so very grateful for this love, it made me stronger, then and now to know that so many people were there for us. Some people said how amazed they were with how I handled this horrible time in our lives, well without the help and support from our community, I would have been a mess. This is Sam in his beautiful handmade quilt, patches from all our close friends and family, they quickly whipped this up while he was in hospital for his first chemo. This quilt travelled to every hospital stay, appointment and outing we had. He was always wrapped up in love. It is so special, that now that he is gone I sleep under it every night, it is on my bed to remind me not only of my cheeky boy but of the love and support from our dearest, I thank you xx
