A new year

It's a new year again. I can't believe how fast these past years have went. You'd think I'd say that these past 2 years since Carleigh have been horrible, you know, with her not being here and all, but they haven't. Aside from grieving, they've been pretty good. We've had a lot of good times as a family. 2008, 2009, and 2010 brought us 3 beautiful daughters. I'm pretty happy about that. I just wish we didn't have to say goodbye to one of them.

I just mentioned the other day at Anthony's parents' church that if Carleigh was here we'd have 3 girls under 3. It'd be so fun to tell people that we have 3 under 3, but we can't without making people think we're off our rockers seeing how they'd only see two.

New year's resolutions? I don't do them, but I have hope that 2011 will be a great year. For us and for many others.

So here's to the new year......may it be everything we want it to be.

This was a rather bittersweet year for a lot of people it seems. You are right though, over all it was a great year. I'm sure that 2011 will have even more blessings and good times in store!

I'm so grateful to the Lord for your beautiful daughters. I'm glad you were able to make memories of Carleigh's life, though I know that doesn't discount the fact that she passed away. I pray 2011 brings good things for all of you as you honor all your daughters. xoxoxo

I am new to your blog. This May will be the 2nd anniversary of when my daughter went to be with Jesus. I love finding others blogs who are going through this with CHrist. It gives me such hope that God is the only way to heal from such grief! I too am looking toward a year of great things God has in store, Thank you for your faith!
