What Might Have Been

This was us eight months ago. Asher was still with us, safely tucked away in my belly. We knew what we were up against then, but were trying our best to revel in every moment the Lord allowed. How I wish we could have frozen time. These were the last pictures we had taken. As I try to prepare for today's pictures, I cannot help but think of what might have been. I cannot help but think of the sweet boys that will be missing from our 2008 family photo. So much joy yet so much sorrow.

This is the most complete family picture we will ever have. Isaac is missing. My four boys have never all met. What a tough reality to live with. Though, I am sure they will know their brothers when they get to meet them.
Why do the simplest things have to hurt so much? Lord please lighten this load, it is becoming much too heavy!
