My girl would have been 11 years old in a few days. I really hate this time of year. I miss her all year long, but her birthday is especially hard. It is comforting to know she's watching over her sister and I. I just wish she were doing it from beside us, and not from Heaven. I'm really hoping her birthday is uneventful, and I can just have quiet family time and reflection. We all deal with loss our own way. I find myself dealing with her birthday differently every year. This year, I sincerely just want calm and quiet. I still haven't decided what, when, or how I'm going to tell Weewee about her sister. I definitely want her to know about her. I'm just not sure of the details yet. I'm hoping I'll know when the time is right, and that God grants me the strength and eloquence to do it in a way, that will be good for Weewee.


I just recently received my subject for our next challenge swap. I had to console myself. Did I mention the bloggers I participate with are fabulous?! Did you know fabulous bloggers come up with amazing subject swap topics?! Did you know an amazing subject could intimidate the heck outta me?! Well, now you know. Consider me completely and utterly intimidated. My goal is to work on it later today, and as often as possible over the next weeks. If I don't,  it will never get done. I honestly have no idea what to write. I'll be consulting my better half again, and praying he's a miracle worker. Again. My Weewee had a sleep over last night with her honorary Nana Cici. I missed her so much. Nana's house is about 30 feet from our house, but it felt like a bazillion miles away. I survived. Kind of. I didn't sleep much. When I knew Weewee would be gone, my first thought was... SLEEP. I should've known that wouldn't happen to the extent I wanted. I was convinced Nan…

I just red how a beautiful, little boy was chasing his frisbee, and was hit and killed by a truck. Tragic. Breaks my heart. My heart goes out to his parents. I pray that God's love and comfort surrounds them. If you can, include red balloons in his honor, in your Mother's Day festivities. His parents ask that the balloons aren't released, as they could harm the environment/marine life. The hash tag #RedBalloonsForRyan can be used to show support. Please, love your children. Life is short. Enjoy your children. Let them be little. Enjoy every moment.
