On The Brightside....

NOTHING like a month after the fact that teaches you just

HOW MUCH

the LORD supports and sustains you through the experience of losing a loved one! This last week has been hard. Pictures that once brought comfort now bring wincing with the pain of missing my Little D. I want to hold him so bad it hurts. We all do. I think I thought that my faith and knowledge of where my boy is and the peace he feels would help me bypass all of the REGULAR grieving process. NOT SO. However, we are going through it. All of us. Some days a lot better than others. The others....well, there is a lot of crying and pressing forward out of necessity. It is good to grieve. We have to. How could we not mourn the loss of a piece of heaven in our home and one of the sources of absolute light in our lives?!

ON THE BRIGHT SIDE (cause we all need one now).....

We are whisking away on vacation. I am not going to tell you all the details...YET. Oh, you will know. I just can't run the risk of certain little eyeballs beholding the joy that awaits.

I will tell you that it starts with Me, Jake & Mallory driving to Vegas on Friday. We will be staying with our DEAR DEAR Norris'. Oh I almost cry and giggle at the same time everytime I think about that part! Ryan will fly in on Tuesday for a work meeting that will last until Wednesday. Then......


Tsk Tsk! You will have to wait! And don't you who know spoil it! Do you hear?!

One thing is sure. You will be privvy to the info on Wednesday. Are you excited?!

You've been on my mind a lot lately. I know how hard this time is...the time when the funeral is over, the cards and letters have stopped pouring in, people have gone back to their lives...leaving you bewildered about how on earth you're supposed to carry on like the most life-changing experience in the world has not just taken place in your home. What now? Now is when you have to get on your knees and plead for the Holy Ghost to be with you, rather than having him there as a gift. For me, that was the hard part. So glad you're getting away for some fun. You're an inspiration!

We know this process will be so hard for a while, and you do have to grieve... It's all part of it. We love you all so much and we hope you have a BLAST on vacation. Your dad and I leave for our cruise next Thursday, so I'm really excited... YEA!!
