A Month to be Thankful: Day 18

Day 18: Thankful for the Time with Kyle

well, if you don't know, november 18th is always a hard day. i woke up this morning and thought of that morning 18 years ago as i found out my little brother had passed away from his battle to cancer. losing a family member is never easy, but when you have the comfort and love of God, it makes it a bit more bearable. and while it is still hard today and kyle only lived three short years, i am still so thankful for the time we had with him.

kyle lived for three and a half years and about a year or so of that battled with neuroblastoma. however, those three short little years were filled with some of the greatest memories, of which i will never forget. and one thing about kyle that i will never forget... his smile.

kyle could light up a room. and his personality, smile, and fun memories of him still do today. i smiled and laughed as i read my dad's facebook status of some of his favorite memories of him. he was some kid. so, as the day comes to an end, i am thankful for the time we had with kyle. while it was too short and hard, it was also so wonderful in many ways. and thankful that i know he is with the lord - no more pain. no more suffering.
