Empathy and Sadness

Yesterday was a hard day for you, which meant that it became a hard day for me. It was one of the only times in your life that I can truly say that you were unbelievably sad. I sat and held you for awhile as I began to realize that this was the first time that you had truly felt a loss. For some reason in your 5 year old mind you thought we were going to keep Oaklen forever. I am so proud of you for being such a sweetheart to your cousin this past week. With your cooperation and help with him it made me realize that perhaps someday it wouldn't be too hard to add another Deets to our family. Bronson, I pray that you continue to be a sweet and kind boy throughout your life. You make me so proud.
