- 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...

Welcome back to Friday Fragments!
I got this beautiful angel in the mail the other day.
I don't know who it's from.... but THANK YOU to who ever sent it!
(They sent it via Angels For Hope)
Also, Thank you to YaYa for this postcard!
And to my neighbor for this!
(aren't they adorable? read more about them here.)
Where did summer go?
It's been so cold the last couple days. I've had to wear sweaters and fuzzy socks. I refuse to turn the heat on in July. On the upside, the forecast is looking good.
Not Looking Forward To Next Week.
My daughter's 4th angel day and birthday, followed by our 6th wedding anniversary. Usually, we have a BBQ & Balloon Release to 'celebrate' both occasions but no one showed up last year, and this year it won't even be just me and Bear, so I didn't plan one because I don't think I could handle the disappointment.
Pain in the Neck, er, Head.
Yesterday, I suffered the first migraine in 4 years. That was no fun.
Where's My Curves?
I'm thinking of quitting the gym. Not because I don't want to go, but because it's closed whenever I have the opportunity and motivation at the same time. This summer they have decided to close between 1 and 3 pm M-F and they close for the day by 1 pm on the weekend. Early afternoons would be the best time for me to go right now while I'm not working since I have trouble falling asleep at night and as a result do not wake up too early in the morning. I can't really afford to keep paying for it if I'm not going very often.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Start it off with a funny...
