Monthly Scrapbook Challenge - You didn't have a care

Okay I know this may be hard to read but the layout is Remember When.... You didn't have a care. Whitney "the scrappin queen" from down the street. Gives us a monthly challenge every month. We have to produce a layout using a kit we buy from her for five dollars. We don't have to use everything, just some of it.

I chose to scrap about remembering back when you didn't have a care and the littlest things made you soooo happy. I used pictures from when I was four or five years old. Any way, Mrs. Whitney here you go, put me in the drawing. Maybe I will win this time (hint, hint). I haven't yet. Oh! well....I'm just rambling.

Two Years Ago TODAY!

Two years ago today, I had just come back from the beach. When I received a phone call early on June 23 stating that my nephew had been killed. You really do not know how to react and I can remember asking Kim to repeat what she was saying to me I just could not grasp the concept of "Dustin did not make it". What was that suppose to mean? When it finally sunk in I remember asking where his mother (my sister) was. Anyway, all of this to say that this day will live in my mine forever.

My sister has said "I hope you want forget him". How could she even say that. Dustin, my nephew! My husband and I when we did not have children would spend Christmas eve with my sister's family and help put Santa together and be there when her kids woke up. She always shared her kids with me and for that I am so thankful. How do you forget someone who you love - you don't...but I realized in talking to other people who have lost children that is a real fear. It just does not seem like the world should go on. Your whole world has changed, so should everyone's.

Well you can see his picture in the earlier post. But, today two years ago is when he left without us getting to say "Good Bye" Love you Dustin,
