One year ago..

today, my Mom and best friend went to Heaven. Somedays it seems like it was yesterday and others it feels like years ago. This loss has been almost unbearable at times and I still have a hard time accepting it. Despite all of her pain and suffering I would give anything to have her back but I have to learn to accept that she is happy and healthy and looking down on us and our sweet girls. Oh how I wish they could know her. This year has been filled with so many ups and downs for us. Sophie and Ella are what keep me going and functioning everyday when I would rather be curled up in a hole somewhere. Without them and Tadd I do not know how I could go on without her. I know that God gave me my precious baby and Ella to remind me that life can go on even if it feels like it's not supposed to. Please contine to pray for us and for Julie and her girls that we can all continue to cope without Mom (and Dad). I know God is helping us through this time even if it feels so hard. Thank you all for your continued prayers and support during this tough year, they are still very needed. Love, Elizabeth

Hey..I think I've missed a few of your entries lately, so I'm catching back up....

My mom's one year anniversary is coming up in October (the 11th)...and we will close on selling her house the very next week. Talk about stress! I'm here if you ever want to rant out an email in the middle of the night or meet up for a playdate sometime. I know all to well about wanting to be in that hole and not come out! I'm thinking of you!
