It's that time of year when Ty and Jacob take over my blog. It's hard to believe that come Friday (September 5th) it will have been 3 years since we met Jacob and Sunday (the 7th) will have been 3 years since we had to make the heart wrenching decision to take him off life support and lovingly hold him as he passed away. It's even harder to believe that come October 15th, it will have been 4 years since we said hi and bye to Ty.
This is never an easy time of year for me and the weather makes me more emotional. I still do love the cool crisp days and Bee and I will still be participating in our yearly fall activities but it is with a heavy heart. It's bittersweet to be reminded of what happened 3 and 4 years ago.
Last year we decided to have a fundraiser in memory of Ty and Jacob. Just because their lives were short does not mean they can't have an impact that lives on. We raised $1,000 and donated it to world vision. We were able to "buy" animals and fruit trees for families in third world countries. This year we have chosen 4 local charities and want to raise $2,000. I will be posting all the details on Friday and like last year, we will have it open from Jacobs birthday (September 5th) until Ty's birthday (October 15th). Its one thing I do for the boys and their memory. It will kick off 6ish weeks of Ty and Jacob.
