The baby is here!! (Not mine silly!!)

Cat had her baby today. She is beautiful so I thought I would get some pictures up. No name at this point. It has changed several times.

Problems with posting... you can see the baby on my facebook account. Just look under my name now. DW

7 years ago today...

Seven years ago today I was playing with my baby girl at our new home. My husband was at work and life was going as planned. Seven years ago today my life changed when my husband died. And now that it has been 7 years, I have to say that although it is not the life I had chosen, this is the life I want. I am happy with my two kids and my husband. Yes, I still miss Tad and wonder what life would have been like with him but I don't wish it were that way. I have grown as a woman and mother, daughter and friend during this process and although it sucked (and often still does) I am a better person. I have learned that you only get one shot at this thing called life. Again, accidents happen. Like a good friend told me "It's like stepping in dog shit. It's an accident."

So as for today, another year, another July 6th, I am here. Sad and sifting through memories but I am here and loving every minute of what I get (at least I am trying).

I promise not to be one of those people who only post crappy things so when I get back home I will post some really great pictures of my amazing kids!!
