Music, love and laughter...

My kids picked from 8 different varieties of Pop Tarts for breakfast. We went to church and brunch as a family. The van is getting detailed by Chip as we prepare for a trip to Minnesota this week. The sun is shining. There are flower bouquets in our home- sent from people who are sending thoughts and prayers our way today.
I was moved at the thoughtfulness and kind words from some of my new best friends through my scrapbooking connections. Moved so deeply by Teagan that they created in memory of her today.
I can't help but see how she STILL is such a part of who I am...of who my family is each day...of who I continually hope to share with others. That Teagan continues to touch the hearts of so many long after her death is a sweet gift to Chip and to me in life.
In memory of Teagan and all the fun and love and laughter we shared I just had to add this link. It is one of my favorite memories of Chip and Teagan together...singing and dancing. She knew every word of this song by heart. It was a part of her memorial slideshow. And the first song that Chip and I danced to at our wedding. I love that it has such meaning. Life is good. Even on the most memorable of days.

I was also thinking about you and Tegan the other day when I listened to this song. I think of you now every time I listen to it.Maybe you could listen to it when you have time.

Jody- biggest hugs today!

All I could think of today was that I bet Teagan builds you rainbows, hears your prayers, wipes your tears, watches over her siblings, and soothes your souls.

Hope that brings some comfort...because, through tears, it was meant with love.

sincerely,
Peg Graham

Hello Jody! This is my first time leaving a comment on your blog. I found you via Ava's mummy, Sheye's, blog and I hope you dont mind.

I cant even begin to imagine what it feels like to lose a child but I pray with all my heart that you and Sheye and many others who lost their babies, find peace and happiness like never before. I know your little Tegan is watching over you.

Your posts have been so moving and so real, taking this time of year one day at a time, one moment at a time.

A lesson for us all.
