The chain link

'Tis said memories are golden
Well that maybe true.
But we never wanted memories
We only wanted you.
If tears could build a stairway
And heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk a path to heaven
And bring you home again.
Our family chain is broken
And nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

Young & Happy

My house was full and so alive..5 extra kids and laughter and chatter...life, young and happy.

Color amung the greys

Today as i walked out my front door I was so suprised to see how beautiful my walk way flowers were. It was cold and damp and autum..kind of how I have felt for months..and here were these vibrant colors and spurt of growth amungst the dreariness. Not being a huge flower grower I realised I had tenderly watered and cared for these plants since May and they responded with color and vivid brightness..amazing

So Tenderhearted

At 16 I could never imagine having a loss so great that if affects your complete life..and every loss there after seems so great and reopens the floodgate or emotions.Nick has struggled so greatly with the loss of his Dad yet he continues to daily talk about him. When something great happens he gives credit to Bill for looking out for us or being there. Cory wrecked his truck over the summer and what could have been a deadly accident ended up very minor in comparison. Nick first comment was "Dad was there with him, protecting him......just like he did when he was alive."
Today Nick went to see his girlfriend, Taylor, off as she is moving to Montana. She is such a sweet girl and so much like Nick as she loves sports and has a wonderful attitude. I know Nick is really struggling with the loss...as she left today he called and asked if he could come home. His tears were those of heartbreak and loss. I brought him home and told him how much I loved him. And then I cried all the way to work. I know that heartbreak..that loss...probably 10x's more immense but still it is a very hard loss at any stage or age. I hate to see my kids hurt and cry...I know we all go thru it but it still is tough and I cant fix it...but i am always there and he knows that.
