The fist day of spring....For most people spring is a new beginning, new things coming to life...Grass is turning green the bulbs are coming out the earth, buds on the trees. We can open our windows and let all the fresh air into our homes listen to the birds singing. People coming out of hibernation walking there dogs riding there bikes ....it truly is a magical time of the year for most.....I wish I could feel all the good things that everyone else feels the fist day of spring, but for me it is a very sad day. 5 years ago today my son took his life....I miss him everyday, but today is just a ugly reminder that another year has gone bye that he hasn't been in my life. for 28 years it was David and I against the world, I was a teenager when I had him he was born prematurely and with that came some mild brain damage he had cerebral palsy. Every day was a fight for him.. but it never broke his spirit. He went through life with teasing from other kids stares from other people....He didn't let it get him down, he was always happy and friendly with everyone.
I guess the happiness went out of him that day!
RIP my dear David.
