Dear Jakey,

Today is simple. I am thankful for you. I am thankful that you chose me as your mom and daddy as your dad and that you spent 4 years, 7 months, and 4 days with us. I have struggled lately thinking that on your next birthday you will be 7. How can that be? 7 is so big and I wish I knew what you would have looked like and how you would have progressed. Sometimes I can’t even picture it. But I am trying to stay in the positive and in the present. And that means missing you and remembering.
