Me - The Busy Bee

Lately things have been a whirlwind. Everything swirling at once, but thankfully in perfect harmony.  There was so much in need of time and attention lately. The main being Aviana's memorial service. Her day was this past Saturday. It was everything we hoped it would be. The perfect day, for the perfect girl ❤

I have post upon post, partially written, or dog piled in my head. They are ready to go, but every time I sat down I would get distracted - by a phone call, a new idea for Aviana's slide show, oops I forgot to put the bookmark order in or invite so and so, maybe Dave would mosey on in and tell me about his workout that day, the list was never-ending. The end result - I could barely string together a single coherent paragraph : (

I guess this post is to say…I'm so excited! I finally have the time to get what's in…out : )

  5. I know that it was beautiful as You and Dave are the best parents. I too check in every day to see how you are. I am so glad that your family is doing good - makes my heart smile. I know that this will be a tough holiday season but know sweet Aviana will be with you, probably eating some pie! Know you are in my daily prayers and please don't forget to check in as we all love you and just need to know you are OK.

    1. Thank you Julie. I know this might sound strange, or not? But the tough holiday seasons seem to be behind us. It was so difficult on all of us as she was before. We always acted as though it was nothing really, going through the motions, but it was anything but deep down.

      We felt good today. A lightness. It's not that we all don't miss her, because we do…it's just that we know she's happier, and much better off now. And that makes all the difference. We had a really nice day and an even nicer dinner at my Uncle and Aunt's house tonight. I think we all feel how free she truly is. I feel truly blessed.

      Thank you so much for your love and prayers!

      Love you!

    1. Hi Cindy ~

      Thank you for being so kind. Thank you for always thinking of our girl. You will never know how much I appreciate you ❤ Your hope was fulfilled. Our day was just as you described. It was a beautiful day today. I hope your day was just the same : )

      I will absolutely be sharing her slideshow on here. I had a couple other pressing posts before I dove into all things memorial. In the meantime though, http://youtu.be/oSNKDQODanA

      By the way, you are always there for me : ) and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

      Love to you,

      Jen
