Mail For You….

A tear silently rolled down my cheek as I opened a letter that was addressed to my son today. I looked at my husband and said, “I’m sure he could care less about his Medicaid and everything going on in this world today because he is free of all the chaos and why would the State want to send a letter in the mail for him to vote? Do they not know that almost four years ago our precious son went to Heaven? Does the State not realize that they didn’t care about him alive so why would they care now that he is gone?”

This, of course, is not the first time that Brandon has received mail after his death.  Actually, receiving his mail was just one of the hardest things I faced after he passed.  Everyone is different and grieves in their on way.  I have said that before because I know that fourth year mark (month and date) is coming soon and I can’t help but continue to wonder what Heaven must be like. It has to be glorious!

Brandon enjoyed his dad, grandparents, and I, as we read to him.  Anything we would get in the mail that had his name on it, he would get excited.  Even if was a letter from the State or the Government.  Ha ha! He would always roll his big blue eyes cause he knew my voice was flaring up as I read to him and he knew they were cheating him out of something.  That’s why I am sure he chuckled as he seen he got a letter today to Vote! I wish he could vote from Heaven!

I guess my encouragement for today is to enjoy the mail as it comes to you daily.

Your loved ones, here and after, will at some point, shed a silent tear as they receive your mail because at one time or another, I am sure there is/was a story behind getting mail for you….

Love & Blessings

About Tonya Aycock

Hi, my name is Tonya. I am a wife and mom of two children (Brandon & Brently). I am a born again Christian. My passion is raising awareness for my boys and making sure they have the very best that I can give them. I love singing. I was in a Southern Gospel Group for about three years, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I think most of all, besides the singing, I enjoyed meeting people and sharing my testimony of how God has brought me through. I love playing guitar and hearing my sweet husband play music and sing to our boys. I enjoy making crafts and designing floral arrangements. I love camping. I am always up for a new adventure! I enjoy working in my yard and anything outdoors. I love my home. I like taking pictures of God’s beautiful creation. The hummingbirds, Canadian geese, turtles, and deer are beautiful! I never dreamed that I would enjoy the country as much as I do. I have always been a city kind of girl, so let’s just say I am adjusting to the country's life well. Haha! Another exciting thing about my husband and myself is that we have always wanted to open a restaurant. Maybe one day… who knows…. I created this blog to share the in’s and out’s of daily living of being a mom of children with special needs, how life can change in an instant, losing a child, finding real friendships that live the same kind of life that I do that truly understand, and much more. I love to talk about my faith as I learn how to cope through life (good and bad) together. I want to always put complete control in my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, because without Him, I am nothing. My prayer is that I can somehow help someone by sharing my story. It is most definitely easier said than done, and I fail daily, but striving to make things work in a world that doesn’t understand is just one of the reasons I am here, writing and sharing my story and trying to be the best me as I can and being the best mother that my children will love and respect and see me survive and thrive as I watch them surviving two thriving in life. But, most of all that they see Jesus in me. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 God has a plan for my life and my family as well and for who is reading this right now. I can only hope and pray that I am doing what He has called me to do…… Being a wife, mom, advocate of special needs, a friend, encourager, but most of all… a servant of His. This has been and continues to be a unique life raising my SuPeR HeRo children dancing in the rain of the beautiful, messy life!
