This Has Been Our Road . . .

Missing Joey a lot the past couple of days. Funny how I will be just fine and then an intense wave of pain will wash over me, and I just feel devastated all over again. Working through it. Possibly going to take the kids to the cemetary this weekend. The "Moving Wall" has come to Utah for the first time and I thought it would be good to visit.

I wanted to use the Little Yellow Bicycle's "Pack Your Bags" line to write about some of my feelings. We have been on a special kind of journey with losing our son. And even though these are travel-related products, they fit my mood perfectly. I find it cathartic to write about my feelings when I feel like this (I also give myself permission not to when I don't feel like talking about it).

Thank you for letting me share my thoughts today. I'm sure I will be fine. I just have good days and bad days. Thankfully I think we all have more good days than bad days, which is a very good thing!


  1. Aspen is watching Junior's giants right now. It reminds me of your family! Mom the scrapbooker, Dad the crazy computer guy, Junior the master builder, Sister the awesome and little man (Jimbo). Makes me miss you and the kids a ton!!! Especially Joey!

  2. What an amazing layout. It's awesome that you give yourself the freedom to let your feelings out when you need to. I know that there will never come a time that you won't miss Joey, but I hope that one day remembering him won't be as painful for you. Huge hugs coming your way...

  3. Beautiful layout Jen! Your details always inspire me! I've been thinking of you a lot lately. I was on my way to an early morning meeting at church on sunday and you and joey flashed through my mind. I'm saying little prayers for you girl. Wish we lived closer!! ((hugs))
