The Emotionally Draining Anniversaries & Holidays

So, for those of you who follow this blog consistently, you have probably noticed how often there seems to be an "anniversary" for little Joshua.  Joshua was born on the 1st of December...so every 1st of the month is an anniversary.  Joshua passed away on the 13th of February...so two weeks after his birthday, we have his angel day. 

This alone has been a lot to handle, but lets add in the other holidays/anniversaries that have happened in between:  Easter, Mother's Day, designing the headstone, the headstone being placed, family trips, etc.  Basically, there have been a lot of days that remind me of him not being here....

Now, we have Memorial Day coming up.  Sometimes, I just feel drained with all the emotion that comes with these anniversaries/holidays.  I just don't know where it is going to come from this weekend. I guess we will just wait and see...

  1. I have been thinking about you guys a lot as we approach Memorial Day. I can only imagine how tough the first year without Joushua is... Each week you are presented with a new "first". I will continue to pray that the ache of his absence gets a little easier to live with and hopefully future years will not carry quite the same sting as you will not have to do it for the first time each year. We will be blowing bubbles for Kylie on Memorial Day and we are blowing them for Joshua too. I bet he would have liked bubbles and hopefully a few find their way to him. Hugs.

Joshua Kent Ipson was born December 1, 2012 with a very complicated combination of congenital heart defects. After 2 1/2 months of fighting for his life, he passed away on February 13, 2013. We invite you to share our experiences as we grieve his loss, rejoice in God's plan, & keep Joshua's message of hope alive.
