Halloween Card for my Niece

I started this card before my daughter's accident and came close to throwing it away but I thought maybe it might cheer up my niece who has been struggling with Cindy's death. I know that it doesn't take the pain away, but even if it makes her smile for a second then it's worth it.

My husband is gone for the next 4 days on business, so I thought maybe I'd try and get some cards done. I have a ton of thank you cards that need to be made.

As always, hug your children and let them know everyday how much you love them. God Bless!

My Angel

I wanted to post a message to my online friends to let them know that on September 24th my beautiful daughter was killed in a car accident on her way to school. I'm sorry that it took so long to post this but saying the words meant that it would be real and I just wasn't ready to face that yet.

I have received some emails and I know that I have not responded to them as of yet but please know that I appreciate all of the kind words and prayers. Cindy was only 23 and going to school to be a RN. She was probably the kindest, gentle soul that I know and it's still hard for me to believe that she's not here with me.

Her service was absolutely beautiful and that provided some comfort. I spoke with the pastor for some time during the week before her service. He was very kind and just sat and listened to different stories about Cindy and her life. Alot of those stories were used in her service. That I am very grateful for.

I'm doing better, not good just better. I miss her smile and her "I love you momma's". I know that I'm a strong person and will make it through this but there is one very good lesson to be learned here and I know it's been said a million times. Make the most of each day with your children. Let them know everyday how much you love them. I know I did that with Cindy and I don't doubt for a second that she knew this beyond a shadow of a doubt but I still see people around me that don't. They assume they have all the time in the world and you just never know.
Rest in Peace my sweet baby girl. You were an Angel here on Earth and now your one of God's Angels. I love you so much.
