    What a blessing that you do choose to remember.

    Yes, the anniversaries do hit hard, and the season and the angle of the light cannot help triggering the memories. It might be easier with the passing years, but then again there will always be something to set off the grief. Many milestones yet to come with your children in which you will all miss Lauren anew--to say nothing of the moments of significance to the two of you.

    Let me make a suggestion that might be completely off base, and yet may be valid. We'll never know.

    I think it's entirely possible that when Lauren drew the heart with your children's names in it, she did so to include the children in your love, not to leave you out.  That awareness of moms is very strong; it's not an either-or, not a lesser-than.

    Peace to you and yours.
