Matt and I were together for 10 wonderful years - met in 1998, married in 2002, until his untimely death on November 15, 2008. We have two beautiful, healthy children - Jacob (born 5/04) and Sydney (born 5/07)... the most precious gifts he could have ever given me.

Hugs and Kisses

My sister has been in town visiting this week. She has been such a huge help - cleaning the house, doing the laundry, and being an extra set of eyes and hands (and ears). Last night, I took the opportunity to run some errands, sans children, and have a little time to myself. She played with them, got them ready for bed, tucked them in, and when she asked Jacob for a kiss goodnight, this was his response:

"I only have one kiss left, and I'm saving it for my mommy."

Does it get any sweeter than that? How does he come up with this stuff?!

Sydney is my other little love bug. When we were in California, she told me she loved me for the first time, and she's been saying it ever since. She loves giving me and her brother kisses and hugs, and big sweet smiles.

My children fill my heart with such joy and love. I am the luckiest mommy in the world!

I stumbled across your blog through Matt's (through My Charming Kids) and it touches me. My sister-in-law in Keene, NY also lost her husband due to bizzare tragic circumstances this past fall, and she is also the mom of two small kids. What a year it has been.

You are amazing. Keep your head up.

I'm new here, by way of Matt & Liz's blog.

I don't know what to say, other than I'm so sorry. I can only imagine what you're going through, and my heart aches at the mere thought.

Just wanted to send my hugs and prayers for comfort and strength.
