We Never Forget

Courtney would have been twenty-three today. So much has happened in that time, but we never forget that for today, we had hope for her. My daughter and son-in-law were great parents, but they were not destined to hold her here on Earth for very long. I will always be grateful for the courage and faithfullness of my children in caring for my granddaughter during her nine and a half years here. She lives with God and we never forget her.

*Light* to Courtney's memory, Kacey...

Sounds like your diet is going good so far. Slow but steady usually does it, maybe 1 pound a week, 2 if you're walking a LOT...

I'd send my hubbie to the doctor for a blood test, and get a presecription to to up his testosterone levels -- and quilt a little bit less !! hee-hee...

That's one of the best benefits of a good marriage!

Hope you have a good weekend, Kacey !

I believe the angels that come into our lives are with us always.
I feel the spirits of my brothers with me daily as I go about my work.
That's a wonderful family pic. Courtney will always be in your hearts and on your minds.
Have a great weekend.

Hi on Saturday, Kacey ! How are you today ?

I already blew my diet yesterday... sigh. Okay, today is a new day... I know WHAT to do, it's just doing it that seems to require a more disciplined mind set than I have rght now... Maybe I'll have to take a polaroid picture -- that might just be scary enough to keep me in line !

How much weight do you still want to lose ? Is Hubby sticking to his diet as well ? Sometimes encouragement helps, even if the fridge just has celery sticks and chicken breasts in it !

You commented 8 times on my blog last month - thank you !!! (I'm doing the Sunday 'thank you's and apreciation' again tomorrow...)

They say the light that shines the shortest burns twice as bright. It may be somewhat cliche, but I think it relates here. That's such a great family picture too.

Dear Kacey,

Thank you for sharing the beautiful story of Courtney's life and the memory of her which lives as strong as ever. She was a true gift to your family.
