Not Forgotten

I am just having a rough day. Sad, blue, depressed. I just am.

I miss Joey. I feel lonely. I feel empty and low.

I know that I won't always feel this way and when I do, I try to acknowledge that and then let myself feel whatever it is I'm feeling.

Still it's hard for me.

But I am never really alone.

Besides a loving Heavenly Father who watches over me and loves me, I am blessed with little angels throughout my life.

Last night I received evidence of that in the form of a package filled with scrapbook supplies. Apparently ScrapSupply hosted a special event in which members nominated people to receive a special care package. I have no idea who nominated me or why, but I must tell you how much it made me feel loved. I think it's important to feel significant and to feel like we matter, especially when we are struggling. I cannot tell you how many times I have had a shoulder to lean on offered me. I hope you know that I am so very grateful, that I'm doing my share of leaning, and that your support means the world to me.

Thank you so very much!


  1. I think it is OK to feel this way from time to time, you are doing great, but you are still mourning and that is OK. you can feel lonely, sad and even angry, you have every right too even with the knowing that he is in a better place. You are his mom and you are allowed to feel this way.
    I truly admire you Jen and the way you are cooping with your grief. Wanted to wish you a happy and peaceful new year.


  2. I know the feeling - when everything is supposed to be happy and your not. That empty chair is a lot to deal with, especially around the holidays! I always admire you and your honesty about it.
    What a great surprise you received just when you needed it :)

  6. Thinking of you and your sweet family this holiday season. :)

    That looks like an awesome suprise package...congrats! It's always nice when something good happens unexpectedly.

    And, ahem, if you need to hang out with a slightly loopy local gal, well, I'm not so far away. ;)
