Days 16-20

Day 16 – a song that makes you cry (or nearly)

Well, I mentioned on Day 1 that the song He Will Carry Me can get me a little teary. I think that any of the songs on Carleigh’s playlist below have the potential to make me cry. It would just depend on how I am feeling at that moment.

Day 17 – an art piece (drawing, sculpture, painting, etc) that moves you

I love the drawings that Maryline made for me of Carleigh. There’s just something really special about having your child sketched with love.


A couple other drawings that I’ve seen before that I really love are the ones of Jesus holding babies. These ones definitely make me tear up! I can only imagine that this is how it could be up there in Heaven.

Day 18 – my wedding

Anthony and I got married on October 1, 2005. We got married in the church that I grew up in and is just a stone’s throw from my parent’s house. The day was beautiful and everything went pretty much how we planned.

We had a Roman themed wedding but I put my own twists on it so it was modern too. We had around 300 guests and it was such a fun time.

Day 19 – a talent of yours

I think this one is hard for me to narrow down because there are lots of things that I consider myself good at but not one that I really choose to focus on. So I guess I really don’t have an answer for this one.

Day 20 – a hobby of yours and how it changed since your loss

One of my hobbies is scrapbooking. I don’t scrapbook much anymore now. I have made 2 scrapbooks for Carleigh and I did enjoy creating them for her. Scrapbooking can take a lot of time and time is something I just don’t have a lot of anymore so I can’t do it like I used to even though I enjoy it a lot. I have decided to make a first year scrapbook for any children we may have since I made one for Kyndra and then for any photos after the first year I’ll create photobooks. I like the idea of creating something for each of my children so this makes the most sense to me.

Your wedding photos are BEAUTIFUL! The pictures of Jesus with babies makes me cry, too. Somehow my heart can feel glad and broken at the same time. I'm a scrapbooker too! I'm starting a pregnancy scrapbook at a weekend retreat next month, and I can't wait to get my hands in that paper again. :)

I have always loved those pics of Jesus holding the babies. I wanted the first one you showed in our Dreams of You Memory Books and even emailed the artist to request permission. But, she never replied. Those are my favorite pics, though...the idea of Jesus embracing my children....just amazing and so comforting. I loved Maryline's drawings, too. And...oh my word...your wedding pics!!! Soooooo beautiful!!! I love them!!!! And, your joy is evident.

Thanks for sharing this.

Love you!

Votre mariage était magnifique...
(Joyeux anniversaire de mariage avec un peu de retard!).
On ne regarde pas de la même façon les albums faient avec les mains... Maintenant, j'intègre des dessins de mes enfants aux différents âges et je trouve sympa de voir leurs évolutions
