I apologize for not keeping this updated as often as I wanted to. Life has been very crazy here at our house. I was really sick for a few days and thankfully I am way better now. Plus add to that chasing after the kids and all the other activities that we are involved in. This is the start of a whole new month as well as the start to the month of remembering where we were two years ago. Some of them I just want to forget about and pretend none of them ever happened and that I am going to wake up soon and she will be here. But that's not going to happen and so we continue to hold on to Jesus. He has brought us this far in this journey I know he will continue to carry us until we are reunited with her again. Oh, what a day that will be. I just added this song this morning called, Sing To Jesus. One of the verses in the song says this; Come you weary and he will give you rest, Come you who mourn, lay on his breast, Christ who died risen in Paradise, Giver of mercy, Giver of life. I love to think that when we are sad that we can just lay on his breast and he will comfort us. He gave Lindsay the life she had here on earth and now he has given her a life with no more pain, no more sorrow, no more tears, and her heart is whole. As much as I want her here with us so bad, I wouldn't want her here if she was suffering and hurting. Lindsay, We miss you so much and we love you more than you know.

The walk is coming up very soon and we are so excited to get to go this year. We still need to raise as much money as we can. If you would like to help here are the links to our walk pages;

On May 19, 2010 we will be putting the Lindsay Bear Baskets together at our MOPS group. I am so excited to get them put together and delivered. Last week I did some inventory of all the stuff we have. We have 91 bears and 44 baskets. We are still in need of a few things to put them together. We need; Life is good socks, note cards, gift cards (Starbucks, McDonalds, Subway, CVS). I will be sure and update when we are done and add some pictures for you.
A few prayer requests before I end this post. Please be praying for my brothers wife Jenny who will soon give birth to there 2nd baby. She is being watched very closely during this pregnancy. My Aunt Jeanne will be having her surgery on May 17. Pray for peace for her, my Uncle Mark and my cousins Jeff and Megan. My sister Julie is also expecting in November and my sister in law Alyssa. Alyssa is Jon's brother Aaron's wife. Lots of babies coming this year.

We thank you for continuing to follow Lindsay's blog and for praying for us. We love you all.

On the 29th I was sitting with Garrett's mom and I realized that it was the day that I came to Boston with Brian and Ethan. That was her second surgery. That day will have such an imprint in my heart. It was the last day I got to see Lindsay! I remember being excited to get there to see her. I look back now and hate that we left. But I can't go back and change that now.
We are excited for the Walk-a-thon and to help raise money for the hospital. We had such a good time last year and are looking forward to be able to do it again this year WITH you guys.
Lindsay Bear, we miss you very much. Lately you seem to be the talk of the house. Ethan randomly talks about you. Last week he wanted to know if you were coming with him and Emma to sleep at Pop and Granny's house. I wish that you could do that with them. But I know that you are with them all the time. We love you so much and can't wait for the day when we get to see you again. Emma saw a Ce-Ce butterfly yesterday. She loved that, so keep sending them :) We love you big girl~

Many days I talk to the Lord and for awhile ask if He would allow Lindsay to be back here with us. Then the Lord reminds me she is whole and not suffering with the weak heart and she is happy, playing with Him. I, too, wouldn't want her here suffering. Looking forward to being able to be together for all eternity. I believe it is coming soon.
Also love it when Emma talks about Ce-Ce coming to play or that she could go to heaven to play with her for the day and come back here at night. I'm so happy that Emma still remembers and that she is happy that Ce-Ce is in heaven and wants to go there too.
Looking forward to walking in the walk-a-thon in June and being together as we help those who so graciously and loving helped Lindsay and our family.
Granny misses you, Lindsay girl, and looking to be there soon.
Love you all,
