Colorado Trip 2014

June 6, 2014

Some of you may have read about Bella being the flower girl at my sister’s wedding last week, but I wanted to briefly share here about our trip home. We had such a good time. Truly. Everyone was so kind and sweet.

There were times someone would sit with me and just talk on and on about themselves, their kids, grandkids, etc – and I would think, “Are we going to pretend my sons didn’t ever exist?” Then at the end, I’d get a squeeze and a whisper of, “I won’t say much because I don’t want to upset you but I have prayed for you and those sweet boys every day.”

And I realized – they didn’t know what to say either. Just like I don’t. We are all simply bumbling through this together, trying not to hurt anyone more and some times we accidentally do because we stay silent.

It taught me a good lesson from how it feels to be on the outside looking in – and to be less assuming and more searching.

Here are some pics from our trip! You can click on any to start the gallery scroll – a feature WordPress has I didn’t know about. I’m not sure how it will look on a phone/tablet so bear with me as I publish and edit.

    Hugs, it will never get easier. Hopefully with time people will be more comfortable telling you they prayed for you and your sweet family.

    Excellent. Your point is worthwhile and not often mentioned. Sometimes it's caring and not uncaring that makes us flub. What's the DADDY LONG-LEGS picture for? (I can't seem to get the show moving.)
