Even though I made this layout last month, it really speaks to how I'm feeling today. So, I thought I'd share it now.

I used some scraps of my favorite My Mind's Eye paper and busted out those cute special hearts to use on it.

 I also used up some Crate Paper stickers and added some new Heidi Swapp mist and my favorite little tool, the Tiny Attacher.

The journaling reads..."Somedays it's hard for me to leave my cocoon of a bed. Somedays I end up back here after getting you and your sister off to school. Somedays the memories of your accident overwhelms me and I suffer. Some days it's hard to keep going. But everyday it's worth it. Everyday I thank God that you are still here and He gave me my issues with PTSD instead of taking you. Everyday you are worth it!"

Yesterday was the third anniversary of Mickey's accident. The kids and I stayed at home and hung out. We played, they watched TV and I scrapbooked. It was a nice day. Today, not so much. Today, I'm suffering a bit. But, it's worth it. I love you, Little Man!

Oh Erica, I remember when Mickey had his accident, but I was unaware of the details. Thank you for having the strength to share your memories of this scary event that altered the security of your world. He is a beautiful boy and you are an awesome Mom! He is such a lucky boy in so many ways! HUGS!
