- 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...

This week on i ♥ faces, the theme is laughter.
After my husband passed away, I was looking through some photos to find for a slide show to play at his funeral. I came across a series of about 6 photos that I took of him one day in 2007. I had totally forgotten about these photos and they are now amongst my favorite.
My husband had been sitting on the patio and when he noticed me aiming the camera at him he broke out into a laugh. My husband had one of those kind of laughs that you just couldn't help but laugh along with him. He used to fake laugh to get me laughing (which in turn would make me choke [I always choke when I laugh, I don't know why!] and then he would say "you're allergic to fun!") but in these photos, he's showing his true self, the guy I love, the guy I miss.
Oh, how I can't wait to see this face again!
