This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

The cake is amazing! You did a great job!!!

I love the pink balloons... and the flowers on the mylar one. Do you save the mylar ones?

And with Tyla's garden in the background of your family pic.. that is so sweet :)

What a great way to remember your baby girl :) I am sure she is smiling down from Heaven.

I love the idea of releasing the balloons so she can enjoy them, too!
I'm reading a book right now (can't recall the title, but Karen Kingsbury is the author) and I read something the other day that I felt was really simple, yet so profound. The man badly missed his wife and on days when the grief was severe he reminded himself that he needed to, "Do the next right thing." He didn't need to fix weeks away, even days away. He just needed to do the next right thing.

Her garden is lovely too.
