I’ve asked them probably ten times to get out of my suitcase lol. They keep sneaking back in. Ollie has buried himself in my freshly folded clothes and Henry has successfully hidden all his slobbery toys beneath my underwear and bras. I’m going to smell like dog all week. Never ending dog hair. I will miss my babies.. But really boys you can’t come!
I was sitting at Johnny’s grave and little brother runs up to me and says:
Noah: It’s been a hard day missing Johnny, huh?
Me: Yeah baby, sure has.
Noah: Here’s a flower to cheer you up.
Made my whole day! 🌸☺️ #itsthelittlethings
With a heavy heart today I remember the 7 brave marines who lost their lives a year ago. I can’t believe it’s been an entire year. I was following one of the marines girlfriends on Instagram and I just couldn’t believe what happened. At the time, I didnt know Amy very well and I had no idea that in no time at all we would be connected forever. I do know that when God took Johnny from me, that he was met at heaven’s gates by some of the very best marines. In time, I became friends with Abbey and Annastasia who also lost their fiancés in the tragedy. I am SO thankful for these friendships, even if the circumstances aren’t ideal. They have helped me through some of my darkest nights. Held me up many days when I could only fall. I wish everyday I could bare this pain for them especially today. They have lost a piece of their hearts forever. My heart just breaks all over knowing how hard this day must be. A whole year. Without their voice. Their touch. Their love. I will never understand why these things happen and how we wake up each day and endure them. These ladies are so strong. Stronger than I could ever be. It feels wrong to say “I’m proud of you for making it this long” but I know how dark some moments have been. Please pray for these families. I hope that through the tears today they can remember the love and the life that was shared. This is not where it ends. Our lives are forever altered by their love and I know somehow, we will see them again. Hang in there my loves. I am here when the tears flow and the words don’t. Love you. Semper fortis. 💔💐⚓️🇺🇸 #rememberthefallen #semper #neverforget @amylizf @abbmalone @mstino23
