I don't need the calendar to remind me of this day.  My heart knows it is coming, my subconscious tells my entire being that it is here.  Without thinking it is in my mind and the countdown begins to remind me of the worst day of my life.  
I don't need anyone to tell me of all my blessings, I truly know.  I am strong, I put on a good face, I will always miss my girls.

I love you girls.  Always and forever.

Red White and Blue Craft

As I was reading a blog this morning I came across these mason jars on Holy Craft

I knew I wanted to try them out.  I did not have any painters tape on hand, so the lines are not perfect, and if I tried it again I would use a stencil for the stars and not free hand them.  But over all I really like how they look.  

So even though she doesn't know me, thanks to "Holy Craft" for the idea.

Love you girls

Life continues

Since I fell off the face of the earth, ummm not really, just the computer desk, life has continued.   We returned from the beach this month.   Such a relaxing break from everyday life.   I love sitting and watching the waves, I can loose track of time just watching.  

We replaced the flowers on the crosses Sunday Morning, the anniversary of our loss.  

We had a wonderful thunderstorm about 3 am this morning, love the rain, we need it for sure.

Happy Birthday Megan

As always we spent Megan's birthday at the beach.  We celebrated with lighted balloons and champagne on the beach.  This year we celebrated her 25th birthday.  It is still such a struggle for me.  I try to hide it, and I do a good job, but I still cry.  I miss her so very much. 
I know she is thrilled that she gets us all together for a family vacation.  Family times were important to her. 
We took sand castle lessons again this year.  Such fun!  I love playing in the sand.
I love you girls

Happy Fathers Day

I am so blessed to have four amazing men in my life to honor on this day.  My husband, who has always put his children first, and taught them right from wrong and how to love.  Next my father - in -law, who showed me what a Dad is.  Next my son, who I have watched grow from a boy to a man and become a wonderful Daddy to his children, and my son-in-law who is the best Daddy to four of my grandchildren.  They are all such wonderful men and Dad's.  And I know that is not something that happens for everyone.  I am so blessed that my children and my grandchildren have a reason to celebrate today.

I love you girls.

We had a wonderful day yesterday on the beach.  Last night we wrote messages on balloons that I put light sticks in so they would "glow" and we released them.  It was a super way to celebrate Megan's birthday.  Then we all sat together and looked at photos of Megan and Kendall and talked about memories. 
I am so blessed to have these times with my family.

I love you girls
