Five Years

It's been five years since Burke was born. Five years of this little space in our family, a pause. Our lives right now are a whirlwind, spinning us from day to day without much time for the details (let alone blogging opportunities). It's all we can do to get showered, keep everyone in clean clothes and make it to our destinations on time. This morning as I was rounding up the kids, distracted by this aching pause, Bennett asked me why I was sad. I told him I missed his big brother and we took a couple minutes to talk about Burke.

At the end of our small chat, he told me: "Well, don't be sad, mom. We will all love Burke, even when we are big. 'Cause he is part of our family."

And so he is. And so we will.
