Never take for granted...

Looking back at some of my favorite pictures of my sweet punky makes me happy. I can remember the moment I can remember everything about how amazing my baby girl was. It saddens me I can no longer have those moments today or tomorrow, but at least we did have the time we had! Gabi taught us so much about life, the thing I have learned throughout this entire experience is just how precious life is and to live in the moment...Give thanks for everyday we have together. Sorry I know I keep saying this over and over, but I cannot express enough just how important it is. So as you start your week off think about what kind of difference you can make in your kiddos lives. Think about the things you would want them to know if you could not see them again. It is a terrible thought, I know, but so can the end result if you choose to not share those feelings. That is one thing Jason and I know we did right with Gabi, she knew and felt every ounce of our love. We were there every step of the way, we fought with her just as she fought to be with us!

Gabi is sporting new shades that sissy bought her! She sure knew how to work the camera:)

Pink and Squishy!!!

Aww, love the glasses.

As you guys know, it will always be hard. I am sure that you will never "get over it" and it will never be easy, but with time the difficulty of dealing with her loss day by day will lessen a little bit. She's your baby and always will be and these are hard times.

We really need to get together so I can see Kinsley before she goes to college, I miss her! Hang in there through this tough time and hug Kins as much as possible. Love, Laurie

You have taught me a lot, and in turn blessed my girls! Love to you!

Thanks for the reminders! I think we all need reminders now and then to not take our loved ones for granted. Love her cool shades pic!

I think it is alright that you repeat yourself. Some people can't hear it enough. I think it is hard for some to understand the importance of each day, especially when they have never dealt with a tragedy. I too, have no worries about Ava feeling the love Nate, Kaden and I had (and still have) for her. Remembering is a great gift to give them.
