These two start preschool next week, which means I'm going to have six hours a week with just one child at home. I'm not quite sure I'll know what to do with myself. 😉
In the beginning, I tried to cling on to everything I could that was related to life before the accident. I was so scared of the changes that were taking place. I remember just the changing of the seasons about did me in. I'm so grateful now for the many lessons I learned while the storm was raging. Though I miss my daughter, grief has molded and shaped me into a completely different person. And I can see it happening to many of you, too. ❤️ If today you find yourself in the middle of the storm, hold on. The storm will eventually let up, and I have no doubt you can walk out the other side a better person. Just be patient with yourself and remember you can do hard things. //@happihabits
I'm grateful that Danielle from @todaysthebestday asked me to share one of the lessons I learned from losing Preslee. (Click on the link in my bio to read the post) If you don't already follow @todaysthebestday , you definitely should! I appreciate her openness with infertility and enjoy her motivational mothers series. She's a mom who keeps it real and we need a little more of that around here. 💕
On our walk to school this morning, a girl walked a few feet in front of us. As I stared at her new clothes and back pack, my thoughts suddenly turned to Preslee. I've been doing everything I could to avoid these thoughts this year, but in that moment, tears began to fall before I could even realize what was happening. It hurt to think there should be an extra 3rd grader walking next to me this year. 💔 It's always hardest to experience grief when you least expect it. Sending love to all the parents who feel the sting of their missing child this week.
And he's off! He was a little nervous to go all day, but couldn't wait to eat lunch out of his new Cars 3 lunch box. His teacher spoke to him through song... his worst nightmare,🤣 but I have no doubt he's going to rock 1st grade in a new school. Love ya Sledgehammer, I hope it's a great year.
I recently received a message telling me that I've had four children since losing Preslee, it's pretty much time to stop sulking. Sharing my thoughts and response on the blog. I'm so extremely grateful for my tribe. Though I do receive negative comments, the good outweighs the bad by a million miles. Love to all of you! 😘
She's nearly 10 months old and times like these are limited. She still lights up when Ledge walks into the room and I can't help but think how much we're going to miss him when school starts next week. 💙
We're pretty much unpacked, and spent the weekend doing some remodeling. One of our neighbors insisted our kids call her Nana when she learned we didn't have family close by, we've been showered with more plates of cookies than we can count, and the North Salt Lake version of Taylor from Stars Hallow (Where are my Gilmore Girls Fans at?) lives a street over and rides his bike past my house daily. It's pretty great to feel like we're exactly where we need to be at the right time. ❤️#home
