I'm a mother of 3 who started blogging as a way to share our many adventures and to expand beyond the everyday "mommy world". While there IS so much more to us mommies than the title, there is very little that doesn't in some way or another lead us back to or influence our children...if anything. So, I hope you enjoy following our family's randomness, because as all moms know- you can never anticipate what tomorrow will bring! Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day! :)

Miss You More Than I Can Say

I've been thinking about Matt so much today and by extension, my nephews. How I miss them all!

Matty, I wanted to call you today and say, "Man, your nephews and niece looked so cute today. How are MY nephews doing? Oh! And I ran into your friend, Bobby!" I think you would have liked hearing that. I sure do miss you, Bro. You are forever in my heart and I will treasure the short time I had with you on this earth. I find comfort in knowing that this parting isn't permanent. I carry you with me wherever I go and await the day when we're together again. Love, Deedubber

"Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other
That we are still
Call me by my old familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way you always used
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we always enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was
Let it be spoken without effort
Without the ghost of a shadow in it
Life means all that it ever meant
It is the same as it ever was
There is absolute unbroken continuity
What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner
All is well.
Nothing is past; nothing is lost
One brief moment and all will be as it was before."

I'm back!

Well, if I ever figure out how to successfully import all my blog posts from Wordpress, I'll be thrilled. In the meantime, I decided I should go ahead and start posting to this one anyway. Those who were following my wordpress blog, sorry to switch on you like this but (even though I'm still trying to get used to blogger's format) there are things I like better on this side. For instance, blogger has monetize options that aren't available to wordpress users until you have at least 25,000 views per month...and then they split profit with you. I'm nowhere close to that number (yet ;) ) and although I'm not blogging for profit, I figured if I'm gonna be blogging anyway it wouldn't hurt to at least have the opportunity available. Plus, Blogger has some really cool templates and designs! So, please bear with me as I move back to blogger and learn how to navigate my way around. Hopefully this transition will be painless for all of us. Thanks for following!

P.S.- If any of you seasoned blogger's bloggers (funny, huh?) have some advice for me on how to import, I'm all ears!
