Happy ???? Holidays

Last year on December 9th Gavin passed away in my arms at Duke University Medical Center.  As the anniversary of the day he earned his angel wings approaches, I am finding myself missing him so very much.  I do my best to put on my smile when I hear "Merry Christmas"  or "Happy Holidays".  However, in my heart, I would just rather sit this one out this year.  Unfortunately, that's not an option.  I have two other kids that depend on me.  I have to force a smile for them.  So I will hang my stockings by the chimney with care and hope that Saint Nicholas soon will be here.

I long to be purchasing Christmas toys for my little man.  Instead, in order to keep my mind occupied and to honor Gavin's memory, I will shop for toys for the children forced to be confined to the hospital during Christmas.  If anyone would like to contribute to this toy drive, please contact me and I will make arrangements to pick the toys up.  Email
