one foot in front of the other.

Today is a new day.

I woke up without tears in my eyes this morning...

...after receiving the phone call from the medical examiners office on Saturday, today's focus is to contact a funeral home to make arrangements for my daughter. We decide to have her cremated. My sister will be helping me with the process since I stay with her during the day while my husband is at work. I definitely cannot handle that on my own.

Yesterday she had a little bbq in the afternoon in her backyard. I watched my little nieces playing in the spinklers and just marvelled at how happy they were just running around in water. Kids enjoy the simple things. I'm learning to appreciate the simple things again that I'd gotten in the habit of overlooking because I've always been in search for something bigger and better. I'm learning how to take it slow...and I'm enjoying it. One of my favorite parts of the day is waking up, looking to my right and seeing my husbands face...I love that man.
