We were teased with a taste of Spring! You could just feel it and hear it! It didn't last long, and we are having another round of cold weather. I know after talking to my relatives in Illinois, I have nothing to complain about....they are still having single digit temperatures.....can't imagine having that kind of weather for an extended period of time!
Spring was one of mine and Pete's favorite times of the year! We could sit on the porch for hours and talk about our dreams for the garden and flowers and of course, the anticipation of the return of our beloved hummingbirds....those little guys kept us entertained for hours.
I miss him so much....always....but there are certain times, it just hits you like you have been run over by a truck.....and you never know for sure what triggers those feelings or when they are going to come. With Jennifer's birthday and the anniversary of her death coming up, these feelings just seem to be stronger. I always had Pete to help get me through the bad days. I just take it day by day and do what I can to keep their memory alive and to do something for others. Kimberly and I have been working hard on items for the Jennifer Project bags....so glad that we are still keeping this project alive after eight years. Jennifer spent so much time in the hospital, I know that she would love this project. I will choose a bush or tree and plant it in her memory.
Spring will soon be here and I am looking forward to the dark and dreary days of winter turning into beautiful colors and sounds. God is good and He is good ALL the time!
