This week has been immensely difficult for my family and I, and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the warm messages and the little things you have done to brighten my day. It really mean't so much and helped me get through one of those most difficult times in my life.
Friends near and far sent food, flowers, and special gifts that really made me smile. Something I didn't think I'd do much of that day or the days before and after.
The hardest part was re-living those moments again and I mentally could not get past the timeline. I knew on 12th at noon they left for their hike, 4pm they were supposed to be back, 6ish they called a rescue team, and in the early morning hours they passed. Then I just replayed everything that happened to me on the 13th starting with the phone call and how I spent the remainder of my day. I didn't sleep much nor did I totally feel there. I constantly just imagined them hiking and then got upset thinking about their final hours.
I really hope that each year it gets easier. I know people say it does, and I'm sure the first year is the hardest, but my situation is so different. I lost three people at one time very tragically.
I hope God continues to bless my family with miracles and happiness. I know he placed baby Scarlett in my life at this very moment because I needed her to get me through this. A baby was not in our plan for another year or so and I am glad that God had a different plan. She brings us so much happiness, that it hurts at times. I cannot feel more blessed to have gotten this special gift from above. I know that she has impacted everyone's lives for the better.
Again, thank you, from the bottom of my heart for all of the support in every shape and form that you have sent it. My family feels the prayers and we are so grateful for the love during this time.
Please continue to keep us in your prayers. Love you all, so much!
