Since Joe died, I wanted to return family pictures to those who were in the pictures or had someone in the pictures that was in their part of the family. Anyway, it has taken HOURS to separate all the pictures, some as old as the fifties. People I didn't know, even. I separated them into 8 boxes to send to family members. I kept certain ones for ME because I loved them so. I came across a picture of him when he was 3 and another when he was about 8. His Eagle Scout presentation with his troop leader and his mom and him. I have taken these precious pictures and framed them and hung them on the walls of my bedroom. I absolutely love looking into the eyes of my sweetheart when he was little. It just warms my heart. I decided to keep these in my bedroom because other people might think I'm crazy. When I am in my bedroom, I feel his presence all around me like warm hugs. I look into those tender eyes of this little 8 yr old boy and know that one day back then he was dreaming of finding me.

She compares people and not surprisingly people seem to frequently come up short. How do you console someone but also get them to appreciate the people trying to help them.
