A Mother's Gratitude

The absolute hardest thing about this experience is not the loss of my bestfriend, my companion in all things, but to see my children in pain over the loss of their dad.

I, Adriana, mother of Thomas, wants to thank the kind, generous soul that put a smile on my son's face.

We have been surrounded by so much love. 
So many people have gone above and beyond 
to help us in so many different ways. 
Not a day goes by that love and service is not extended to us in some form...
be it prayers, messages, invites, delicious food and treats, helping me
Last week, my plan had been to ignore Valentine's Day...
but all week long, especially the day of, 
acts of love kept appearing at our doorstep. 
Alex exclaimed, "This is the best day ever!" 

Every time I see a smile of pure joy on my children's faces
a piece of my heart mends.

How thoughtful that the giver also went above and beyond to purchase the Apple Care! That's amazing! And was that an iTunes gift card, too? HOW FUN!! Oh, I bet that felt so good to do for him! I love good people!!

This made me cry -- tears of joy, of course. That's so wonderful. I love that your family is witnessing the love that so many have for you. I hope it is providing you with strength as well. Love you!
