Miss P!

We had a play date with sweet Karsyn today! I can't wait until Karsyn and her momma move to town too so we can hang out all the time!



Miss P has been constantly making us laugh with her good dance moves! Hope this brings a smile to each of you as it always does to me!

Julee,

When I was 2 and my sisters were 3 and 8 my 6 1/2 year old brother died after a nearly 5 year battle with leukemia. It was a devastating, life altering tragedy for my family. In so many of the most important ways we were never the same.

When I graduated from nursing school I landed my dream job on the pediatric bone marrow transplant unit the largest transplant center in the world. It didn't take me long to gain a new understanding if the depth of my parents loss. I asked my mom many times how she did it? How in the world did she survive losing her only son, watching him suffer, feeling so helpless? How did she get out of bed? How did she put one foot in front of the other? Each and every time I asked I got the same immediate and confident aanswer. How did you make it mama? You and your sisters she replied. She called us her blessed distractions. She said it was impossible to not know joy with the three of us, especially me and my 3 year old sis because we were so young and had no real sense of what had happened.

Your darling girl is just that and more for you. Drink her deliciousness in Julee for she is your blessed distraction. She is a gift to you from Matt and a part of the long ordained plan for your life. She is beautiful Julee. See Matt in her. Find joy in her. Let her perfect presence fill the emptiness.

Continued prayers for peace!

She really is too beautiful!!! I think she looks so much like you both! Love her hair ... my daughter is 3 1/2 and I think Preslee has more hair than her. :)

Cory said...

Wow! Such a pro walker already! That is awesome. My little girl was that way. She is 8 now, but at the end of her 9th month, on a Superbowl day, she started walking. So amazing to see the little little ones just toddling around! Preslee is precious!

Hi Julee, I never comment but i've been reading your blog for a while now. You and Preslee have been on my heart everyday since Matt's accident. I just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you both. My mother passed away tragically when I was only 20 months old. Like Preslee will, I grew up with only pictures and stories of my mom. One thing I wish people had done back when my mom first passed was to make a book or journal, just with pictures, thoughts, and facts about her. Just a thought, but it may be something you want to consider for Preslee. It can be something she can look through whenever she wants or needs to, and you can too. Wishing you comfort, peace, and lots of smiles from your sweet girl. Lisa

Michelle said...

Tiffany said...

Tammie said...

ADORABLE... Love how she is so percise with her moves.HA Thinking of you both.

Ashley Bills said...

Hey Julee, are you still here in Little Rock? My little girl was born 11/16/11 and from reading your blog, she and Preslee are A LOT alike...it's weird. Anyway, I am a member of a fabulous moms group here. We have wonderful playdates all the time. Or, if you just ever want to meet and let our little girls meet and play, that would be nice. I have a blog, too. It was actually inspired by you and what happened to Matt. It's http://bloggingbills.blogspot.com/
It's a work in progress! My email address is butterflybills@yahoo.com. Please feel free to contact me if you and Preslee need another friend!!!

Hi Julee,

I just said my daily prayer for you and your family. My prayer for peace. My prayer for comfort. My prayer for joy in the most unexpected on moments. I pray for you every day. And as I have said every time I have posted since Matt died, above anything else I pray that you feel the peace that comes in the moment my prayer passes my lips and raises heavenward.

Julee I am praying for peace.

She is just beautiful!

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I have not read your blog in the past couple of weeks and am just shocked to read what has happened. My hear aches for you. I am so happy you know God and realize things happen in his time. God bless you, Preslee, and your families. I cannot imagine what you must be going through.

My first child died at birth. I wanted to die. God was the only thing that got me through that horrible time as well and knowing others have gone through the same loss.

I know exactly what you mean when you talk about triggers. It will eventually get better.

I always said that I will never get over the death of my little Jake but I will get through it.

Dina said...

You don't know me but I've followed your blog for awhile now. I was just sitting here watching tv when you and Preslee came to mind and I said a prayer for you and than had to stop by to let you know God loves you and His comfort and peace will walk you through. Big ((((hugs)))))

Auntie Mip said...

Thinking of you tonight in Preslee's first Halloween. Knowing how much you must ache for Matt. How different it was all supposed to be. Imagining the simultaneous joy of watching Preslee in her costume and wanting to share it all with Matt and then the heartbreaking and horrific realization that he is not here. Thinking of you and praying you through it all. Praying for peace. Praying for grace.

Carmen Gathmann said...

Stopping by just to say hi...you are always in my thoughts and prayers. Praying that Jesus will grant you strength, comfort and peace. Big ((hugs)) to you!!

Penny said...

Still praying for you....

Auntie Mip said...

Julee,

It is a cozy Friday night and my thoughts turn to you. I wonder how you are doing. Much of the country, the world is focused on the tragedy on the East Coast. It is horrifying! I donated $10 in Matt's name to the Red Cross tonight. I know that you must fear as time passes that Matt will be forgotten. This is just my simple way of saying I remember.

I am still praying Julee. Still begging for that peace to embrace you and hold you close so the hurt doesn't hurt so damn much!

God Bless you!

mom7 said...

Still here and praying for you and Preslee. I think of you daily and pray for comfort and peace. Just so you know, you are thought of!

lindsay said...

I just want to simply say that I'm praying for you and your beautiful daughter. I heard about your story and I hope you feel the peace and comfort from being lifted in countless thoughts and prayer.

How cute is she! Love those little kiddo dance moves. Too sweet!

JJC said...

Have been reading your blog from before Preslee was even known about, and have been praying for you along the way. Praying for you today as you cross the one m onth mark. Praying that you give in to the grief as you need but are able to smile and maybe even laugh at some good memories that cross your mind today.

Couple of ways that I'm changed from "meeting" Matt thru your blog....

I take more pictures of myself with my children rather than hiding from the lens until I lose that extra weight, fix my hair, put on cute clothes, etc.

While re-reading your blog one night, I saw a recordable book that I'm assuming Matt gave Preslee on her 1st valentines day. What a great idea! Planning to give my children those for Christmas and have asked our parents to record one, too.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you all. Much love.

Jen said...

Julee, I just wanted you to know that you were on my mind today. Praying for you.
