Mom,
There are no words that can describe how much I am missing you right now. At least there are no words in this language.

Father God,
If you would be willing to ease the hurt in my heart tonight even just a little I will be thankful. I'm thankful for the dreams that I have with her in them. Even the one about the Walmart deal with coupons and the Cashews. When I woke and realized what I had been dreaming about it even made me smile for a moment. For those moments she was a part of my present world.


living here but longing to be Home

Wasn't worth it

It wasn't worth it. I felt like I couldn't get out of my own tracks this morning. I decided to take a cat nap on Alysa's bed while the kids were playing and Katelyn was napping. Mind you, it wasn't restful because Alysa and Tyler kept coming it to talk to me or to help them with this and that. I knew that they had gotten into the play dough because Alysa brought some to me because she could not get it out of the container. I knew they would probably make a mess. I was just so tired I didn't care.



Well now the kids are all napping and instead of being able to take a nap myself... after I finish writing this....I will be cleaning this! Good thing that I hadn't just mopped my kitchen floor.

Changing so fast






Katelyn has been changing so fast in the last couple weeks that I wanted to give a quick update.



About a week after learning to sit on her own she was standing up in her crib. Her forward crawling skills have reached the advanced level. And already she is starting to take steps while holding on to furniture. AHHHHH and Nana guess what - tonight we discovered a first tooth! HOORAY!!




She has been such a joy to watch grow and a comfort in these past months.




Though I did not post on the 29th of June I did not forget what day is was. I though a lot about our sweet Olivia.



Two years sweet baby girl - I have missed you every day. You and Grammie Peters are together again. My life is forever changed because you are my daughter. My angel on earth who now lives with the angels in Heaven.
