I recently was going through pictures I have taken through the years of Big Brother and came across this one from last year at Easter time.
I love this picture as it is the first time we ever actually did an Easter Egg hunt with him. Tobei drew picture hints of all locations and we put the starter one just outside Big Brother’s door. At each location he would find a treat or a toy and a new picture leading him to the next location. He had a wonderful time on his hunt and was so excited each time he found a new clue. Memories that will remain with me forever.
We are very lucky to be in the position we are. We are healthy, our children are healthy and Tobei has a secure job. Not everyone is as lucky as us. On a forum that I belong to I followed a mother as she went through something no parent should have to experience. Her daughter got very ill and ended up in hospital. On the fourth day in the hospital her daughter died and doctors and nurses were able to revive her. I cried very ugly cries as I felt only a small percentage of the pain this mother felt. Her daughter ended up staying in the hospital for a month. 3 weeks of that she was in a coma and they were not sure if she would ever come out of the coma. She did and is now home with her family but they still face a very bumpy road with surgeries ahead and they still are not sure if this precious little girl will live a full life. My heart breaks for this family and my thoughts are always with them.
