A Better Day

Thanks everyone for your prayers. I feel them working. I am doing better today than yesterday. I know that could change any minute, but right now I am feeling ok.

Joel, Rafe and I visited Sydney's grave this morning. I wanted to make sure all her flowers were in place after all the rain and wind. Everything still looked perfect. I took some of the roses to hopefully dry and press. I am planning on making a scrapbook for Sydney and want to have the roses in it. I am so thankful that I have so many items and memories that I will be able to put in her book. I never thought I would have twenty days of memories.

Love to all,


  1. My heart aches for you, I pray for you and your family everyday. I have followed your sweet baby girls story on here and facebook. I can not say that i know how your feeling right now, but as I read your blogs and post, i cry with you. You are so strong and I know that Sydney is watching over you right now. I pray that your loss will get a little bit easier to bare everyday. Never forget that your sweet daughter is safe and watching over you, she is never truly gone. I will never forget your family and your strength. You will remain in my prayers.


  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with you "ALL"!!

  3. Lindsey,
    My prayers for you won't stop. I know that it feels like a part of you is missing but I pray that God give you the peace to know that that part of you is with Him in Heaven. Sydney Grace will always live on in the hearts of everyone she touched, including mine. I'm here for you if you ever need anything. All my love and prayers,

  4. I am happy that you are feeling the comfort of our loving God today. While it may change at any moment, just realize that He is still there. He is also sad that His child is grieving. He hurts when we hurt. He understands and loves you so much. Whether His arms are around you or He is carrying you, He is constantly with you and surrounding you with love.

  5. You are a wonderful testimony to all who have come across your story. I found it on Facebook a few days before your sweet girl went to be with the Lord, it touched my heart and my prayers are with you. You are witnessing what our Mighty God can do, He is "nigh unto those of a broken heart". What a blessing your short time with her will continue to be until you see her again in paradise!!
    None of us know how long we have with our children. May we cherish every monent!!
