"When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure."

Today has been a sad day for us. My dad let me know that my cousin had passed away last night. We kind of knew it was coming so it was not a sudden thing but that didn't take the pain away from losing a cousin. I had not see J in quite some time but the memories are there! I will always remember her for her amazing smile and a laugh that was contagious! I rememeber high heels were broken at her wedding, play times at my grandparents house, road trips to see my aunt and uncle and my cousin was there at times and so many other things! She was an amazing lady and like I said could light up the room with her spunk, smile and laugh! She will be missed and life ended to early for her but we know she is with her Jesus. We celebrate J's life and all she was and the life she lived. She truly was a blessing and a ray of life!
Please be praying for my aunt, uncle, her brother, sister and 4 children as they walk through this difficult journey. Please also pray for the rest of our family as well.
We were able to celebrate life in a different way today. My friends had their baby Z about 10 days ago. I was able to sneak over to the hospital the day after she was born but Ben really wanted to see her! We went over there today and had a great time! I asked Ben on the way if he was going to hold her and he said he would. He never had been an infant guy (he has always said he will be fine with our babies) so it surprised me that he said yes. When it came time our friend A asked if he wanted to hold her and Ben said, "no, because I don't want to hurt her!" After Ben was reassured that he would not hurt her he agreed! He LOVED it and kept staring at her! I think he got so cozy that it looked like he would fall asleep himself!
