Little did I know when I was looking for an avengers cake in 2012 that just over 1 month later, Jack would suddenly die and never get to celebrate another birthday again.
Never did I think I would see the day that I would be living without my son but I am. Never did I think that an everyday cold and virus could kill a child but it can. Be extra vigilant with your children as we enter the winter months, I wish I knew then what I know now.
Jack loved his birthday party that ...year and I am lucky that I have these memories. I am lucky that in my broken heart and head, I know my son knew that I loved him and that I would do anything for him. I am lucky that I showered him with love, attention and affection and I took the time every day to show and tell him that he was loved.
In 2012, I had no idea how my life was about to change, life is so precious and like mine, your life could be changed overnight too. No matter how busy you get, always take the time to show and tell your children that they are loved. As I know all too well, tomorrow is never guaranteed.
