I re-read the blog I wrote, and thought, HOLY SMOKES, that was a year ago, and how things have changed!!! Tori has gotten married, and she is expecting our first grandbaby! Im still reeling from all these changes. I get extra time with her this summer because her husband Zack is in bootcamp. So as our bond grows, so does her tummy! Im sure I will be taking pictures as we go. Hannah just finished the 4th grade, and she had the worst year ever. We had so many lessons in courage and perseverance this year it was crazy. My sweet funny Hannah made it through, and I am so very very proud of her.
So this is my first of, hopefully, many random posts from the craziness in my head. Thanks Karen for the bump to do this! Thanks Connie for starting the push about a year ago!!!

I have to find the moments that draw me closer to Hannah, it doesn't come as naturally as it did with tori, maybe because I'm older, maybe because, as i said before, i don't identify as closely with Hannah as tori. i don't know the reasons but i know i have to overcome.
Jason, my husband, has had to travel alot with his business. i have come to realize that maybe this is why it is happening... gods plan to keep me digging in and identifying with hannah on a deeper level. i came to realize this thought pattern tonight when i could either, continue to pout that tori is out again, and jason flew out on business, or use the time to bond with hannah.
She came out to of her bedroom with crayons and coloring books, i know she planned on doing it by herself, but i said, "can i color with you?" her face lit up and she said, "YES!! you can pick any picture you want, from any book!" my heart melted to know it meant so much to her.
