something to think about

i was on facebook earlier today and one of my friends had said jokingly "if youre looking for something to cry about read this.." so i clicked on it. it was a blog of someone that one of her friends follows. a blog about a family. a family that is going through a trial. youll have to read it to get the full affect. its (if you love to read, you will love this story more, its kind of long). their story made me think about things. think about what we are really here on this earth for. it touched my heart. it will make you cry guaranteed. it will also make you run to your husband/wife/children and tell them how much you love them.

there is short mormon message out now that also touches my heart. i was able to watch this when i was home for my surgery. then chris and i went to the temple the other day and they had it playing in the visitors center. so we watched it. you can watch it here this story will also make you think twice about life. i especially love this story because she talks about how looks are not everything.

just thought id share these touching stories with you because i needed to hear them today. i have not been super nice to chris today. (im sorry babe!)


  1. James and I read that blog the other night; such a sad story. And so is the one about the Nielsons. Things like that really do make you stop and think, huh? Have you seen this other one from Mormon Messages? (copy and paste it) It's so sad but such a great lesson is taught! But we all have bad days too and I'm sure that Chris knows without a doubt that you love him :) You guys are cute!

I'm going to start by saying I'm on heavy doses of Lortab and Tylenol. I'm seriously having a hard time making complete sentences but I want this to be out so you know what happened. From the beginning of this journey, Chris and I have felt like this has been such a "team" trial. We've had so much support and so many prayers offered on our behalf and that it's such a devastation to everyone that this happened. You are my team and I want you to be in on everything.

I honestly can't believe I'm sitting down at the computer and starting to write this out, again. Trying to explain what just happened, again. Trying to find the words to describe accurately how I feel. So here's my best.

I had felt her move very gently only three times on Wednesday so when I woke up on Thursday I went straight for the sugary cereal in hopes that would wake Charlotte up and get her moving. I ate and waited. I grabbed a cold water, drank half and …

Two, Four + Six years

Today is kinda a big day. Everything is hitting today. Our sweet Conor would have been two years old a week ago, Owen turned four and in a couple weeks Chris and I have been married for six years. That's a lot of anniversaries. Some great to remember and celebrate and some not. Everybody has those.

Our little buddy Conor would be TWO! See that muffin top down there? That's Conor not Cafe Rio, well maybe a little of both. Conor leaves some strange memories. Although we lost him, his soul, his body, I don't miss him. It that terrible or what?

After his early surprise delivery I was shocked, there's no doubt about that, but I almost immediately felt like he was a big, grown, man taking care of me. Owen didn't realize what was happening, well none of us did. He didn't ask about him everyday, he was just too young to understand. It just didn't seem like the end of the world. Everyone can handle a certain amount of pain and heartbreak right? Compared to Charlotte…

1 Year

It's officially been an entire year since I last held my chunky baby. Some days are doable and some are as if we lost her yesterday. The mysterious thing about grief is comes in waves. Sometimes just small tidal waves brushing the shore full of heartache and sometimes 40 foot waves of rage, anger and depression. You never know which is coming and when. Sometimes it comes from a small argument with a sister and quickly spirals into grief.. arguments are rarely ever about what it started as. I had a break down the other day, I can't even remember what sparked it but it was harsh. It was brutal. I've come to realize that I will grieve as long as I live. That as long as I miss her and as long as I love her I will grieve.

We want her so badly and my mind can't seem to stop from thinking that. I know I can't have her here, but that's all I think about. When I look at my friends babies, at dinner, at the movies, I want her there with us. She would be the same age as t…
