Missing Him.

Today is the seven year anniversary of the passing of my brother Kurt. It was the worst day of my life. I never want to feel the pain, the fear, and the helplessness that I felt that July 20th in 2002. Because it was an accident I felt and feel as though he was ripped from my life, that I never really got to say goodbye, and that I've never really had closure. I have peace only because I know that one day we will be re-united, that he is with my Dad and the rest of my family that has gone before, and because I have my family to keep me grounded and happy in the moments that I feel blue and helpless. I miss him everyday. In little ways. Like when dh and I are doing something fun and we look at each other quietly and say Kurt would have loved this. It's watching my oldest son grow and knowing that he is part me and Mike, but very very much Kurt. It's incredible, heartwarming and heartbreaking for me all at once. It's knowing that my sister and I have forged a bond even stronger since his passing and that we are always there for each other. I feel for my Mom because I don't always have the words, for my children because two of them have fading memories and one of them has none, except what I tell him. So today big brother, I miss you, I love you, and I honor you. R.I.P. till we meet again. xo

A New Layout and a R.A.K!!!

O.k. so I've MIA these past few weeks with only a couple of posts here and there. Well good news for me. I finally put my scrap space back together after moving, which means I actually have somewhere to scrap where I can see and FIND my supplies. I made this layout the other night on my footstool in front of my t.v. It was a little cramped.
It's about my son, starting grade six. Now he's about to go into junior high! I'm freaking out just a little.
So let's get to it. The R.A.K. I've got a few goodies here for all you scrapin' gals. O.k. you can enter if your a guy too, but I'm pretty sure that I don't get any on my blog;)
This is what you will win: 2 pks Wild Asparagus flowers, 3 pks Mini Me Prima flowers ass. colours, gems, Clear Shapes and Rhinestone Frames both by CTMH, pink and silver metal flowers with brads, Gelly Roll pen in my favorite colour-clear star:), DCWV glitter stack 8x8(48 sheets) Nana's Kids, the chipboard shapes & alpha's to go with it. 106 pieces Nana's Kids DCWV, and of course the album; 8x8 post bound DCWV Nana's Kids album to put all your beautiful creations in, and a few other little random goodies along the way. So that's it. Now all you have to do is leave me a comment and I will randomly draw a winner Friday evening. If you feel like spreading the word to those who would like a chance to win, please do. Have a wonderful day!
