Good Friday

Easter/Spring time this year is really tough for Mark and I. It's such a "God thing" we are leaving for Disney on Easter Sunday. Earlier this week Mark and I had an accidental date night. (Funny story-we were supposed to meet some friends for his friends b-day, so we thought. We had the wrong night. We went ahead and had dinner together...first date night in a while....oops) The alone time sparked conversation about Ryder. Conversation that doesn't really happen a lot. We have both been having so many thoughts lately.

This time last year is so vivid in my memory. I remember being REALLY pregnant. I remember traveling to see my family. I remember Mark's g-ma getting to see my belly since she was brought from the nursing home for Easter. I think it's hard because I don't remember much from the hospital/birth experience so the last few weeks leading up the the birth is all the memories I feel like I have.

Mark says each year this time will get easier. I hope so. I do believe him....I just wish it was easier now, easier already. 


  1. Thinking about you, my friend! I hope you are SO EXCITED about your Disney Trip!! Can't wait to see pictures and hear stories. Disney has the ability to melt your cares away, it really does. Enjoy the magic!

  2. I can't imagine all the emotions, but like you've said I'm sure it gets easier with time. IWe will be running a marathon here in town to remember a friends 7month old who passed. It's on his 1 yr birthday next month and our friends are definitely having those memories that you are, of everything they can remember and all the emotions. I really hope your trip will help bring back all good things for you :)

  3. Thinking about you all! Have a wonderful time at the happiest place on earth!

  4. Praying for you! Hope you have a GREAT time at Disney!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
