Griffin's 4th Birthday

Well, it is here again, Griffin's Birthday. He would have been four today. Four is a big boy, not a baby anymore. Every year it is different, this year I feel sad and angry all at once. Not pretty. Dh and I are having trouble communicating with each other, and I am snapping at the kids :(. I just want to fast forward through the days until Monday (Sunday is Griffin's Angel Day), because I can feel that things are not going to get better.

The first couple weeks of February were pretty rough for us this year. The days leading up to those important dates can be so painful. I would have liked to fast forward through those days, too. I hope the next few days will pass quickly for you.

I'm sorry Anne,
Kai's 4th birthday was not too long ago. I had a hard time, lots of pain and grief. It still happens every year for me. I think we miss them so terribly around these times.
Take it easy on yourself, it sounds like you are really grieving right now.((hugs))
And Happy Birthday to Griffin, and so sorry you had such a short time with him.

Hugs Anne. My thoughts are with you this weekend for Griffin's angel day. I haven't faced a birthday yet - but know it will be tough. Happy Birthday to Griffin.
