4 years ago today was a Wednesday…and a day that changed our lives forever.

It was the day we met Button for the very first time.

ButtonIt was the day we lost Pa.

me and pa

It seems so long ago and yet, only days.

Pa is still terribly missed but never far from our hearts.  The kids know who he is and that he is in heaven.  They talk to and about him on a daily basis.

Today Button sent a balloon to heaven for him.

It breaks my heart that they never met him in person.  They would have adored him and been adored.

But I know that he still has a place in our family.  And that is a wonderful thing.
