But my Little is my spitting image at 9 years old.
These are my eyes.. this is my nose even today!
It is absolutely unreal to look at another face and see yourself looking back at you.
It blows me away frankly.
Here is The Little's photo from this past September.
The past few years have been very hard on me since the spinal surgery and the appearance of more damage to the spine since then.
Pain can just take everything out of you and it took a big toll on me and on my heart.
I literally had to change my life and as a result lost many friends who could not understand my silence, etc. In reality I had little left over to give to people.
But other friends and family hung in there come hell or high water understanding how bad my situation really was for me and I thank God for them.
My heart is now squared away and I am getting back on track once again.
I am in the process of undergoing more tests, MRI's and etc. to evaluate. But right now the pain is extremely minimal for me and I am back up and walking.
It has been a few years of up and down.
Actually, I had little clue of how much time has passed and the last few years seem like one big year to me.
Time indeed flies by and I just did not notice much at all.
I hope everyone had a beautiful holiday season filled with meaning, love and light.
