In grief, we miss our loved ones. And rightfully so, they were and still are an important part of our lives.
Part of my journey has been reflecting on those memories. Sometimes, they bring me joy, sometimes they bring me to tears. The tears come because I would like to have more current memories, and I realize this side of heaven, I will need to live with the memories I do have. Here on my blog, I have shared memories of my son and husband, and I will continue to share them. If you would like to read them, the links are listed below:

As important as it is to reflect on those past memories, my daughter has often said, "let's start some new memories." We have been doing our best to make sure that we start new memories as well. For the third year now, we have had our very own "October Fest." We share a meal of chili, cornbread, salad, and apple crisp. This year, we added a crafting portion to our event and decorated pumpkins with sharpie markers. This was fun, and we laughed through the process. Here is a photo of our completed pumpkins:
