Blog Birthday

As I have mentioned before, July 19th, 2009 marks the one year birthday of this blog. It has been fun and therapeutic. I can read over the entries I have posted and see that I am getting better. It had to happen.

I still have questions, some that I don't want answers to. Will I always think of Peyton a hundred times a day? How can I not, he's my baby boy (even though he was 16 when he left this earth). How can I, as God brings abundant blessings to fill my life. Like I said, I don't want the answer. I'm not ready for the answer.

Thank you for all the prayers, support and comments. When I get a new comment, I usually read through it very fast, I am very self-conscious even though there is no one else in the room with me, just your words. Later, I read them again and they sound totally new and different to me. You have blessed me.

Here's a mini-Peyton story. I hope it makes you smile, poor Tom. I had heard this story the day it happened, but as Tom and I were getting dog food last night, he was remembering it.

Tom & Peyton were in Wal-Mart getting dog food. We have a large yellow lab/retriever mix and another outside dog. We buy dog food (or kibble, as Tom likes to call it) in the 50 lbs bags. Peyton picks up a bag and lets it drop into the shopping cart. The bag bursts and dog food is showering the floor. Tom looks at the spilling dog food and then looks at Peyton. Peyton is nowhere to be found. He bailed on his dad, making Tom look responsible for the mess.

Thanks again for your support. I am ready to see what this next year brings. As you can see, I changed the layout of the blog. I don't know if I am going to keep it this way or not. I wanted to try something new.

Your story is so cute. It gives us a glimpse of what Peyton was like. My brother Blake would do things like that! He was the fun one of our family. The rest of us are pretty dull, but we are working on it. Happy Blog Anniversary! You have a wonderful blog.

The funny thing about that story is I can just see the look on Tom's face! hahaha He's so laid back, I'm sure he just shook his head. =)
