I like to believe with the changing of every season Jenna makes her little presence known in our world.

As of late, dandelions have invaded our backyard.

Beautiful, whimsical dandelions.

Too bad we have to cut the grass ;) I was actually enjoying the tall grass, wildflowers and dandelions back there.

This little metal sign is something that my hubby got me a while back for her garden. It reminds me of a quote I included into the Year of the Babylost Calendar in Jenna’s memory.

“Smile because she lived. Dance because she was mine.”

I saw the first one accidentally while feeding my little man, and had to have a second look. There were two. Days later they were seriously all over the backyard.

Right after he ate that day, we walked outside and made a wish and blew the dandelion petals/ seeds (?) everywhere.

I can’t remember what I wished for but I think I got what I wanted all along… to feel her close.

She doesn’t feel dead to me. She just feels gone, alive but far, far away.

Sweet Jenna.

    Hello Fran,

    I didn’t want to bother you with yet another email as we continue to stumble in our process of grieving and building a website…

    …but thought you’d think it was kind of fun that I added your link to our website, so people can know for certain that our project is already stirring, and that we are collaborating with a lovely professional who is also on her own journey of healing and love. :) Specifically, it’s at this link I added: http://birthingpains.blogspot.com/p/pictures.html. God is moving!! Oh, and I think we’re going to go with the Genesis hosting…
