“And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.  There are some, down the road between hither and yon, that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.  But on you will go though the weather be foul . . .”
Dr. Seuss

Spring is here.  The days are sunnier.  I feel quite the opposite of sunny.  This journey of life and grief always brings dark dark days.  At times I wish I could just disappear into the darkness.  I cannot.  So, I put on my sunglasses and follow these 2 out into the big world.

  1. Im sorry you are having such a rough time. Xo

  2. I hope in some small way it helps to know that others truly care about you and your family. You and Evan have borne so much that would be unbearable to so many. We who love you pray for sunnier days ahead, soon.

  3. Dahlin’. I’m thinking of you and praying for better days.
    Love, Amy

  4. Dear Lanie –
    Sunny days can make our dark moods more difficult. Maybe, it’s the disconnect or our sense of failure about not being able to enjoy what others believe to be good. Putting on sunglasses is a reasonable response and your two little ones look, oh, so cute in theirs! Cherish them and laugh with them, as I know you do.
    Love, Cornelia

  5. I feel your pain Lanie, it is so hard to keep the mental energy up to be happy and upbeat with the kids all the time. I often feel guilty for not being “happy enough.” I hope I do a good job of faking it :). Thinking of you always!

  6. Hopefully the sun will shine brightly soon if even for a day.

    Love you, Evan and the kids,


  7. thinking of you and sending happy thoughts your way – love you!

  8. It’s great to hear your voice and see pics of those adorable faces. Hope your spring is sunny — we’re thinking of you!

  9. Hopefully seeing those little cuties with their sunglasses helps you to allow a small ray of sunshine back in on a day when it seems dismal to you…
