If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!

This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

Thoughtful Thursday (A day early)

Tomorrow - DH, Bear, The Comedian and I will be celebrating Thanksgiving. I am so glad there is a day that brings us all together to be grateful AND to say those gratitudes out loud.

Last Week On THOUGHTFUL THURSDAYS: The Comedian's idle stream-of-concsiousness thoughts on... just about anything!... The Comedian shared profound thoughts about hunting season.

This week, she has been a bit cranky (molars? growth spurt? having internal conflict about turning four?) I cannot say for sure, but instead of documenting her disgust with all things "too loud for her ears", we have a guest speaker.

Please welcome Bear as she shares her view on... An Early Winter.

We are getting ready for school on a particully bitter morning. (Try to imagine January in November - Brrr!)

Bear: (grumpily) - "Nooooo. I don't want to wear a hat. I dooon't want to wear mittens. It's too cold out."

Me: "Yes. I totally agree with you. It is very cold out. But that is exactly why you need to wear your hat and your mittens."

Bear: (riding in the car, still stewing about the weather) "I don't want it to be Winter. I want it to be Spring again!"

Me: "Yeah! Me too. Wouldn't that be great!"

Bear: (suddenly inspired and in great spirits with a lift in her voice) "I know. I'm going to call God. I'm going to tell him to change Winter back into Spring!"

(Silence. Apparently - it was final. She had a plan and was satisfied.)

Me: (unable to resist because I know how literal she is and will in NO way get my sarcasm) "Great. Super. Just let me know how that works out, allright?"

Bear: (exiting the car at school) "Ok. Yup! I'll tell you what he says."
