missing

I was awoken this morning, Trey's 4th Birthday, by an alert on my phone.  The sound of the thunder and rain had me believing that I would be looking at some sort of weather warning.  As it turns out, it was an Amber Alert, meaning a child is missing.

I tried to go back to sleep but the significance of the day ping ponged through my mind.  It seems like 4 years ago all of these memories were a blur.  When these special anniversaries come around there is a constant movie, a play by play of sorts, that provides the soundtrack to these days.

I found it ironic that, on a day that I am missing my child the most, I am awake because of an alert about a missing child.
