Oh the Holidays...

Oh how the holidays wreck havoc on one's soul. At Thanksgiving, I gave thanks to God for our family, both here and in heaven (or heaven forbid.....elsewhere), thanks for Ashley getting a job at Disney, thanks for my husband, he is such a good man, thanks for having had our little Bri for 28 months, thanks for our entire family, the list goes on and on. Yet, there's still that place in my heart that is empty. I know Bri will be celebrating the upcoming Season of Advent with the Best and I just have to keep the vision of that in my head and heart.


  1. Thinking of you Brenda and Jerry at this Season of Christ Birth!

  2. Your post put tears in my eyes. I'm praying for your peace and joy. I love your picture of Brianna on your home page. It makes me smile everytime I see it or think about it. What a special girl.

  3. Brenda, I just met u at the German restaraunt in Niceville,FL. Having 3 kids of my own I feel so sad for you, but I know you have faith and I feel that is why you have taken this so well. Please stay strong and faithful and I wish the best for you and your family, stay strong!
