Beyond a Year

December 7, 2011 Grace's 1st HEAVENday

As this day of remembering comes to an end I am overflowing with gratitude to all of you who have
eased our hurt by sharing your love and compassion with us. I could hardly keep up with the facebook messages today! Each time we have faced one of these tough days you have been there to hold us up. How do we ever repay that kind of love? THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!

I just wanted to share a couple pictures with you....

The completed tree...

Today we looked at pictures and watched a lot of videos. We visited with Gammy and Auntie Susie. Auntie Alisa spent the entire day as we leaned on each other. Joe, our girls, my Mom, Grandpa, Sisters and many cousins met to decorate the tree this afternoon. The kids played there together and even made snow angels. Grandpa brought candy canes for a special treat to enjoy on the way home. We ate chinese food and tacos for our meals today (Gracie's top favorite foods). We looked though Graces treasure chest recalling memories both wonderful and difficult. My parents joined us for supper and then we watched more videos. We thought of heaven and wondered what Grace is doing today.

And we thanked God for each of you.
