The Good Things

I love having a house filled with flowers.
Sweet synchronicities.
Having a couple of days to just be with Zar and Ella, no work, no appointments.
Getting to see people I haven't seen for years, and have missed.
Knowing I am loved and supported by so many people.
Wow, nothing else seems to matter!
Feeling so close to Heaven, as part of me is there.

For the first time in four years, I'm not worried about Charlotte.

You are wonderful Erin. It does feel awesome to know that she is ok. I am glad that you and Zar will get some alone time now that things are winding down a little bit. If you decide that life is a little too quiet- call me- I love you.

Hi there, my name is Lacey, I'm a friend of Julie's. I have little Jaxson, i don't know if she told you about him. I want to express my condolences for the loss of your sweet girl. I wanted to ask you if it was ok that I repost your poems that you wrote. They are so beautiful, and i have a lot of friends of medically fragile children that it would hit home with. You can just send me a comment or my email is laceyrugg@hotmail.com
Thinking of your family, Lacey

Thank you for making us laugh and cry as we caught a glimpse of the precious Charlotte we knew briefly. Her funeral was beautifully done and the beads were a perfect touch to her farewell party.

I know it's been offered by many, but if you need anything, let us know. We love you guys.
