Joe would never agree to go as bobsledders. He just wouldn’t do it. At one point in the evening, we decided to take some outdoor photos in costume. After the photo-shoot was over, my friend Aubrey noticed some interesting images that appeared. Believe what you want, but I think Joe was a little envious of how great our costumes were and wanted to be apart of our team after all. (Or maybe he was trying to ask AJ – WHAT THE HECK WERE YOU THINKING?)
Thoughts for the week…This weekend marked the 3 month mark. I try not to focus on time, but it always sneaks in and is overwhelming at different times. Everyone deals with things differently, but I hope this will help, or make some people step back and realize what each day offers. Each day…Sometimes in the morning., sometimes at night when I can’t sleep, sometimes when I’m driving…I take a moment and reflect on what has happened during the day – what I’ve done – who I’ve seen / spent time with. Every time I do this I realize I still have a lot to be thankful for and live for. I do laugh everyday and I do smile. The pain of losing Joe is still there and always will be, but when I look back on the last 3 months without Joe – I know I can do this. So thank you to all of you for your love, support and moments that allow me to reflect and know – there are good moments ahead.
A huge thank you a large group of family and friends who gathered this evening to present me and Joe’s family replicas of the block that will be placed at Target Field – Traditions Wall in Joe’s Memory. It is overwhelming and so fitting for Joe. (His mean wife had told him she didn’t want a brick with their name on it last year.) Thank you for making his dream come true.
Alright – off to get some rest. I’m on a working woman these days J. First 3 days were fabulous and I look forward to taking on this week.
Love and hugs –
