That is what I said right before I took this photo.
Their relationship makes me happy today.
Life has been extremely busy for our family the past few months. Starting next week everything slows down and I am taking a break and regrouping for the rest of the summer (more on that in a later post).
Until then, we are making the final preparation for the Love Rocks Run, which is happening this Saturday, and making sure these two are loved and cared for.
If you would have asked me this time last year about these two I would have rolled my eyes and asked you if you wanted a dog.
Over the past month something amazing has happened in our house, Alice and Linus have become best friends. Watching this relationship blossom has been so beautiful, especially because I never thought it would happen.
Today over at Portland Moms Blog I share about their relationship and how this little girl has successfully tamed our wild beast.
I had big plans to write a post during naptime today and then I saw the laundry that needed to be folded.
Naptime is over and we are now in the midst of family time, Tom just got home. It’s beautiful here in Oregon so I think there is a walk to the park in our future. I can’t wait for the day I say that we will be walking to Anna and Abby’s Yard.
Today I have a post over at Portland Moms Blog so lets just pretend I wrote that at naptime.
I’m not going to lie, I’m struggling. My heart hurts so bad. I hold on and find joy in my days for Alice and Tom but in the quiet moments, like nap time and in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep, I sit paralyzed with my reality.
I miss Anna and Abigail so much.
No sugar-coating or telling you that time heals ~ my heart hurts the same today as it did on Oct. 21, 2013 when the sun came up and my girls were gone. Actually, I think my heart hurts worse today ~ it’s been so long since I’ve held them.
This is a very long road.
I’m working through it all, taking care of myself and trying to balance my life so that Alice and Tom get the best of me. I won’t lie though, it’s hard, very hard.
I sat down to share that I wrote another post for Portland Moms Blog today. This is what came out instead.
