The spot with missing frosting made a great place to put a candle. Thanks for helping, Ambria. Unfortunately, Mariah was under the weather so she wasn't able to enjoy the pre-party frosting eating festivities, but she was feeling good enough to open her presents at the party.
I miss my best friend. I miss laying next to him on the couch. I miss watching reality tv with him. I miss talking with him about... everything of importance, or unimportance, or nothing at all. I miss laughing together at random things. I miss watching him play with the girls. I miss eating dinner together. I miss going on dates. I miss the other side of the unity candle.
Life is full of mountains and valleys and I am so blessed to have my three girls, Mariah (11), Ambria (8), and Ashlyn (5) to share joys and sorrows with. Oh, and an added bonus in life--donuts! They are delicious.
