Warmth in the cold

Okay- I am entering the blogging world~ I have been following some friends blogs and decided it looked fun and theraputic!
Fitting for today because, today marks 3 yrs since Chelsea's accident. Hard to believe it has been that long, but in ways it seems longer. Our lives are similiar in ways, and yet very different in others. The heartache remains the same, but the sting is not as great. I thought about going to the temple today but stayed home instead. As I watch the snow fall, I am grateful to be in the warmth of my home. As I think of Chelsea, I feel the warmth of knowing families are forever and that I will see her again. How I miss that girl!
I am not sure if the kids realized the date today, and I did not want to remind them if they didn't. It is a day of reflection, and a reminder of how quickly our lives can change. It was a very typical day, until a phone call from a friend came, telling me Chelsea was in an accident, and I needed to call another number for more info. From that moment our lives turned upside down. I wish I could say I have grown from the experiences, but I can say I have learned things, and contiue to do so. The biggest of those things learned is FAITH! There is a lot of action, and power behind that word, but most importantly is trust, as we follow our lives path. There can be warmth in the storms of life :) I am thinking of you today and always Chelsea Love mom
