Well tomorrow it will be 4 years since the drowning of the twins.
We have come so far since that day. From the gloom and doom of what the Dr. said, to a
darling little boy who is proving them all wrong.
We as a family have come to know what life is all about. It's not the type of car we drive, the type of house we live in, not who you know. It is What we have learned about ourself's and what we have learned about how fast live can change.
We have learned that you can keep going long after you think you can't.
We have learned that there are friends, and then there are True friends.
We have learned that no matter how thin we slice it, there are always two sides.
We have learned that heroes are the people who do what has to be donw when it need's to
be donw, regardless of the consequence.
We have learned that no matter how badly your heart is broken the world doesn't stop
for your grief.
We have learned that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
We have learned that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
We have learned that people you care most about in life, are taken from you to soon.
We have learned that it's hard to determine where to draw the line between being nice
and not hurting people's feelings and standing up for what I belive in.
We have learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others, sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
We have learned that it's not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts.
Some of these have been really hard for us to learn, but all I have to do is look at
Bobby for a second, and I know that he has been the Best Teacher WE have ever had.
"Thank you Bobby for teaching us what Love is really all about"
