We get sad about Andy still, but not as often. We've learned to step around the sadness and find ways to distract ourselves from it. It's all we can do. Being sad doesn't change anything, and neither does crying about it, or being angry about it. We've accepted it and we are trying to move past it.
Our family dynamic is tough, but I know all family life is difficult no matter what. Life is just difficult in general for everyone. I know that Andy enjoys swimming and music, so we try to give him those things to make him happy. I also have to have a life outside of my kids or I can't be happy. So, I've really shifted my focus to try to keep everyone in a happier space.
