Friday night Robert and I and Andrew (of course Bug) went for a long walk.. we walk from our house to the Ocean and back. We walked by the new Library so we decided to sneak in and see if we could see the tiles we had made for my Mom and my brother in law Shayne. We were told that they were not together but close to each other... we were so happy to see they were right next to each other. I don't know if someone moved them after we asked or what.. but we are thrilled and I know Mom and Shayne are. Here are some photos I took... you have to understand they are soooo much prettier in person. Click the photo below and it will take you to the slideshow.

We then continued to walk to the beach and I took a couple more photos.. There was a event on the beach where they were seeing how far your dog could jump and land in a huge pool of water. Of course everyone that walked by us would ask if we were going to enter Bug in the event. : )

It was nice to go outside enjoy the air, and feel like things were normal for a little while.. Have a great Weekend.

I thought of you today.
But that is nothing new.
I thought of you Yesterday.
And will tomorrow too. 
I think of you in silence
and make no outward

For what it meant to lose
you, only those who love you

Remembering you is easy.
I do it everyday
Its the heartache of losing you
that will never go away!

Love and miss you!

I am still here....

Please continue to keep me and my siblings and family on your prayer list... we are all having such a rough time..  We miss mom so much.. and it is really hard to imagine her physical presence not here.

I know where she is... I know she is so much happier than she has been in her entire life...  but I still miss her.  I am having a hard time talking to anyone .. so I have been just staying home.

I had a coffee event this weekend that we promised we would do and I did the first day and could not hardly make it through it.  Robert did today and I stayed in bed most of the day.

Please hang in there... I know that I will return to my old self... I am just struggling right now.. 

I wanted to thank so many people but I don't want to do it on this post.. I want it to be when my mind is clear.  I truly have been blessed with the most wonderful people in my life,  I thank you for that.

Love ..

I am heading home....

I will be heading home in the morning... it has been a very long three months...  I am having mixed emotions... I am so very happy to be going home to my wonderful husband I have dearly missed him. I am anxious to see the beautiful calming ocean. 

I am sad to be leaving my mom's house for the last time, leaving my siblings... leaving my daughter and her babies..... just leaving

Has it really been a week ..

I cant believe that mom has been gone a week.. we all miss her so much.  We are going through mom's things... and in some way it just doesn't seem right.

Please keep us in your prayers.. mom was the glue for this family.  Thank you everyone... thank you for all your notes and prayers, phone calls, cards.  Thank you.
