Firsts

We are almost done with the firsts. In a couple weeks it will have been a year since Paula passed away. There have been a lot of trials and blessings along the way. We have been dreading all of the firsts. The first Mothers Day and Christmas and birthdays. The firsts are hard and we have almost made it. I know she is proud of us for doing so well. Good job everybody...we are still a close family and we have grown a lot. There is one thing that remains the same..."CANCER STILL SUCKS!"

Cancer still totally sucks! Every time I hear someone has it, my heart aches for them. It seems like I hear about cancer more and more now, I'm sure it's because I'm so much more aware of it. Kind of like the Aardvark theory.

I'm not looking forward to that 1 year mark. I think for some reason after one year we're not entitled to grieve or something. I know it's not true, but time marches on despite my best effort to keep things at a standstill.

You guys have been amazing. It isn't easy all those firsts...and the seconds wont be either. But you still endure the tough times, embrace the good and find joy. That's what she would want...ALWAYS. Love you guys. Hang in there for the one year mark.

And your right Cancer will Always Suck!!

Keli, I totally feel the same way. After a year, I feel like I should be....more moved on?? I am not. It still hurts as much now as it always has.

I hate to see the time pass. I hate that it has been a whole year without her. I worry that one day, I will look back, and not be able to remember things, times, her voice, her laugh, all those things.

Hi all. You're right Cancer Sucks!! It's hard to believe that it has been a year. Each day I think of Paula, Mom and Dad. I know they are taking care of so many things, including all of us, but I would rather have them here face to face. I am so proud of they way you have all held together. I see the strength of family that Paula taught you magnified many times over, in all your actions. I know you will always hold the testimony of you Mom in your hearts. Her knowledge
and faith are one of her many legacies to you. Each time you make a good decision, or follow through with an extremely difficult task, or show compassion to others, you are honoring all the good things she gave to you. You are her children and she loved and loves you more than life itself. That's why she could go knowing that she will always be you MOM. I love you all and I miss your Mom like crazy. Love to you - Aunt Suz
