I'll Be Back

I just wanted to write a quick blip to let you all know that I will be back.  I know you've been waiting awhile for stories and the in-depth works of what happened in this house from January to mid-March and I do wish to share that with you all.  Writing helps me remember and savor those times & I feel God has put it on my heart to write more.

There were many times I wanted to write about things while Owen was still here but  I'd sit down and know that if I got started I'd be here a little while and couldn't bear to have my attention away from him for that long.  I kept feeling that there wasn't enough time, that Owen's time was precious and he deserved all of my time I could give him.  So I waited.

This morning something hit me so hard that I knew I had to write about it but I'm not sure I'll post it today or not.  We will see.  But I did want to let you all know that I appreciate you following Owen, and supporting our family and I wanted be sure to let you know I'm not done writing.  This blog was initally started to follow our family.  I got the idea from one of our nurses in Gainesville who keeps a family blog so she doesn't have to call everyone in the family everytime her daughter has a first. Plus its a great way to document things like that.  I imagined that we'd keep this blog as our family grew.  So many of you came to this blog specifically for Owen, but I hope that you will stick around to see how God works in our lives after Owen.

I just wanted you to know I'll be back & I'm not sure when the notion to write will strike me but stay tuned & check back if you don't get alerts.

  2. Jerica, I think of you and I pray for you every day. I've often thought, or maybe hoped, that the pain "we" feel, the tears that are cried, is somehow God's way of relieving your heartache, a way of sharing your pain through this all. I hope it works that way. Maybe that's the explanation to why it never "hit" you yesterday that a week had passed. God had others remember for you. HE knew it was for the best, maybe.
    Anyways, I am relieved you are going to continue your blog. I have wondered and hoped you would. No matter how long it takes you, and whatever you decide to share (or not to share), I will always be back to follow your story, your journey. Your family, especially you as a mother, will always have a special place in my heart. You will forever be in my thoughts and my prayers. God Bless You!
