Missing my Daddy

It's hard to believe that my sweet Daddy has been gone already almost 4 months. I wish I could say it's gotten easier. It hasn't. Quite frankly, it sucks! It's like I live it over and over again. There are many nights like last night that I cry while falling asleep. The reality of it just hits all at once, and I have vivid flashbacks of his last 24 hours on Earth. I know this will be a difficult season as we prepare to celebrate Asher's first birthay. There is no doubt in anyone's mind that Daddy would have been here celebrating with bells on! He adored Asher! ...and I adored him!

I know what you really want... pictures of Asher. We went to the park one day
last week. He loved the swings!

Major Life Change

Today was a bittersweet day. It was my last day working at Lifecare Center of Collegedale. I've been there for the last 2 years. In that time, I've grown to love a lot of the patients and employees. Even though it's far from perfect, it holds a special place in my heart. That job brought us to our home here in Tennessee, welcomed the birth of our first child, and sympathized with the loss of my dad. Now, I'll be starting Monday 2/25 at my new job as a home health speech therapist. It's all in efforts to spend more time with Asher. I'm nervous about the change, but I'm excited about what is in store!

You know there's nothing like some girlfriends and a glass of wine. That's exactly what I got to enjoy this weekend. Asher and I went on a one night road trip to Tuscaloosa to see Katie and Katy. They were my two best buds at community college. Even though it had been (I'm ashamed to say) 2 years since we last saw each other, it was like we never missed a day. Mark teases me that I have more "best" friends than anyone he knows. Man, I'm blessed!
