Jeff’s birthday is Wednesday. I brought this up to Travis last night as he splashed in the tub. He said, “But Dad died?” I said, “Yes, but it’s still his birthday and he would be turning 46.” He asked if we could have a party and cake for Dad. I told him we could do something special. We could make one of Dad’s favorite cakes – spice cake or strawberry. Travis voted strawberry.  🙂

We’re doing okay, all in all. Sometimes my mind will drift and I’ll see flashes of the past year, like each moment is a photo that someone is tossing in the air randomly. Deeeep breath. Choose happy.
