Its amazing how small little reminders that Cooper is not here hurt a lot. This morning at a doctor's appointment I had to hand over my insurance card that reads:
1. Matthew A.
3. Matthew D.
Where's my number 4?
Then I was reading a magazine that had a picture a mother had sent in of her three year old little boy Cooper working on a craft. (Cooper would have been three on May 20th) And I can not tell you how many little boys named Cooper I know of now. I thought I had picked an somewhat original name. The worst was last year on what would have been Cooper's 2nd birthday watching my oldest son having fun playing ice hockey with a little boy named Cooper.
I know the pain will never go away but seriously can life just cool it with the reminders!
