We’re Invited

As I have mentioned, I have been having some difficult times. I miss Peyton so much. I know Tom & I are so much better than we were last year at this time. Looking through pictures for the football program started me thinking. This year is not going to be easy. The Senior year is full of sentimental stuff. I know Peyton is not missing out on anything, but we are. There is not going to be a Senior year to share with him. He does have lots of friends that will be sharing with us and I thank God for them.

We were asked today if we would help with Project Graduation. This is an event that makes sure the graduates are celebrating their graduation in a safe manner, no drinking etc. Parents raise money all year for the event and we are ready to help. There will be some tears during the planning and preparation, but we will be better off helping rather than standing on the sidelines.

Speaking of sidelines, a few weeks ago Tom was asked by the football coach to come along on the Senior float trip. Tom called Coach last night and accepted the invite. They will be floating down some water in Oklahoma; I'm not sure of the name of it. I think he is excited.

These last few days, satan wanted me to think people were forgetting Peyton. I told myself over and over this was not true, but sometimes it overwhelmed me. I thank God we are included in these activities. We are so blessed to live where we live, in a caring community surrounded by people who love us and love our son.

What a great idea for your husband to go on the float trip and for you both to help with the seniors! You have a bunch of thoughtful people around you.

Thanks so much for your sweet comments, prayers, and advice. I really appreciate it. It is amazing to me how a split second can change everything. I know that he is in Heaven. I just wish I could talk to him one more time. I know that Heaven is so awesome and he is there fishing somewhere.
