I celebrated our anniversary on October 26,2011. We have been happily married for 8 years. I took an Anniversary card and put it in Nate's mail box and spent an hour or so laying next to him. It was a very hard day. I am the luckiest girl in the world to call Nate my eternal companion.
Parker has starting wrestling and he is really enjoying it! I think it will really help with all the sadness he is going through. Nate and him would wrestle every night, and Parker has expressed to me he misses wrestling. I know I can't make everything go back to normal.. but I can try to put a smile on his face. He had his first meet and he won 3rd place in his division.
We have a mailbox set up where Nate is. I hope and pray that friends and family will put letters in there for Nate. I will periodically empty out the mail box and save those letters and put them in his hope chest. I know that my kids alone will be filling up the mailbox. I would love to see other people's letters in there and I would love to save them and put them in his memory book labeled "Letter's to Nate" His headstone is still a month away from being finished and I am looking forward to it being done. My heart is full and I want to do anything I can to make him proud. He choose me to be his wife and the mother of his children. I am so proud of Nate and all he accomplished. He is a wonderful dad and the best husband any girl could ever ask for. My goal in life is to make him proud and to raise his sweet children the way he would want me to.
