A new interesting idea... at least to me.

How do you start a new blog? I have no idea!! Life goes by so fast that I don't know where it's going. I don't know how we got from there to here. Some parts of my life I love, others I hate. But either way, we just keep going.

I feel as though this part of my life began on March 9, 2002. My beautiful, charming, amazing daughter went to heaven on that day. And now my life is in two sections... "before Joanna's accident" and "after Joanna's accident". And how I miss my girl. I can't talk about it. I life in denial. :o) Sometimes that's how it has to be. It's been a long almost 9 years, yet it brought me to tears yesterday when I thought of taking my other amazing kids to Hastings. I couldn't. The last time I was there, she was with me. It brought me to tears this morning when I woke up to find, this my reality. I feel like it's been forever since I saw her amazing smile, forever since she called me "Mama", forever since I heard her adorable laugh, forever since my world was okay and complete.

And yet, I have so many reasons to smile and be happy. My reasons are simple, AmyJ, Mason, and Cable.

These three kids are the most amazing, beautiful, fun, exciting, funny kids. My life would be so sad without them. Every single day, I am thankful for them.
