Around the holidays my sister in law Ashly's brother Skyler came to visit us. We didn't know what was going on when he started to roll out some street design plans. He's a developer for ivory homes and said that one aspect of his job is to name new streets of developing neighborhoods. He said that a new little neighborhood was going in just walking distance from our home. He said it was going to be beautiful and that he couldn't think of a better name than lila lane. Our sweet little girl will have a street named after her. How wonderful. We were so very touched.
Happy fortieth birthday to my sweet sister. I love you so much. I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful and caring sister.
I had a surprise party for Kelli with some of her friends. It was so fun that i actually pulled off a complete surprise. I do feel bad because the only way I thought of getting her to my house without her suspecting was to tell her that I was having a really hard time and that I needed my sister. Of course she came out to comfort me but instead found a party waiting. We had a fun time and got to celebrate this wonderful girl.
Happy birthday kel

- the day she discovered canee (candy) and was so desperate for a candy cane that she pulled out a chair and climbed onto the cabinet to find one. Once I caught her she innocently looked up at me with a mouth full of candy and said canee?
- how every beautiful princess we see is lila. How on Christmas morning her cousin had on pajamas that had a princess on it and Ruby immediately pointed to it and said Lila.
- how when ruby gets frustrated she calls me honey in the same tone that I say to Quinn when I'm frustrated.
- how her little mind is starting to put together words, like yesterday when at church she looked right up at me and said "don't mommy"
So 2015, you are here. There is not much I can do about that. I pray that this year is full of healing. Of moments of peace. I pray that a new child my come into our home, a new spirit to love. I hope that a renewed strength to my heart is given and the passing days will lessen the sharp pain in my chest. I hope moments of clarity are abundant with communication between my soul and my daughters. I wish to continue. To put one foot in front of the other and to press forward.
