seven months...

It's been seven months since Courtney took her last breath. 

Where has the time gone? 

The days fly by so fast. I feel like I am trying to gather leaves in the fall as the wind blows them from the trees. Running, jumping, lunging to grab that moment in time before it's forever gone. 

I thought about Courtney all day today. 

Not a tear has fallen. I have felt such a peace today. I smiled and talked about her with friends and family. There were Courtney stories shared all day. Our spicy little number left behind quite a legacy of laughter and joy. 

I can't help but feel happiness when I think of my daughter. I know the tears will come, grieving takes time. But for this day, the seven moth anniversary of Courtney's death, there was joy.

I love you girly. I miss your face. I know you are experiencing nothing but joy and the eternal love of Jesus. I am so happy to know where you are, that your safe, loved and no longer feeling pain or fear. 

Until we meet again my, sing, dance and praise your Beloved Lord. 

help pay off medical debt from caring for our beautiful Courtney  

Our new goal is $3,209.00 which will eliminate the balance on a credit card used for Courtney's PT, OT and Feeding therapies and supplies used over the last five years. We have raised $720 of it so far. Only $2489.00 to go to pay this first one off. If we can raise the full amount, we can pay it off and be that much closer to our larger goal. One thing at a time. Thank you so much for your help. 

The entire medical debt is extensive, now approx. $67,3000. It's a lot and will take years to whittle down. Anything helps. Anything. So, I will keep it at the bottom of my posts for awhile. You all have already given so much to our family. Our prayers are with you and we are so very grateful. We can never repay that kindness. So thank you...just thank you. If you would like our mailing address, please just email me at and I will send it.
