26 to 27

Hey Friends,

Another week has come and gone and there isn't a second that goes by that I don't think of Macie. I miss my sweet baby girl so much it still physically hurts. I long to hold her in my arms and see her sweet smile and hear her hilarious belly laugh. I'm thankful for the videos we took of her and the thousand photos we have and we will cherish her forever. She was everything to us and she was perfect.

At her funeral we showed a video that Chris took the night before. She was belly laughing and it was HILARIOUS and we were trying to get her to do it again. I would like to share it with all of you so I will see if I can figure out how to get it uploaded onto here. She is so cute!!

The auction did very well and I'm so happy about it! Doing Spring-for-SIDS and seeing how great it is doing does bring a smile to my face! I know Macie & Maddie are so proud of what we are accomplishing! Go Team M! Thank you everyone who donated and bid...it was a lot of fun to watch!! :) And a special thank you to Barb because she is an amazing woman for orchestrating the whole thing!

Well one of the days I have been dreading is fast approaching...Thursday. Thursday is my 27th birthday and it is going to be hard. I keep telling myself to be happy that day, but that is easier said than done. Part of me wants to forget it is my birthday (another thing that it is easier said than done) and I’m hoping my husband has something planned to distract me, but we will see. A lot has happened to me in a year and I’m not sure if I want to reflect on it or not. One thing I do know for sure is that I’m not the same person I was when I turned 26 that I am at 27.

Take Care,


  1. Praying for you... Hoping that you get to enjoy your birthday as much as possible! Sending some early birthday love your way! *HUGS*

  2. Lisa,
    Sending prayers and love your way. So glad that the auction was a success and yes those two Angels are pround of you and Kellie. I will be sending extra prayers up for you as you approach the holidays and your birthday.

  3. Happy Birthday on Thursday! I am sure the day wont be as exciting as other birthdays but remember that you daughter would want you to celebrate however you can.

    Praying that things get easier for you!

  4. So glad to hear from you! I pray for you to have strength and healing everyday. I hope your birthday goes well tomorrow.

  5. Tomorrow I will be saying a special prayer that God will especially do something that will lift your spirits..maybe He'll even show you a little glimpse of His Special Angel-Macie- dancing around on streets of gold celebrating Mommy's birthday!! Love to you and Chris!
