Last summer I was pregnant.
Last summer we took the kiddos to a drive-in movie.
Last summer we played in the water.
Last summer we went to camp.
Last summer I had never felt grief.
This summer we will do a lot of the same things…
play in the water
go to camp (it is Owen’s first year & he is so excited)
eat ice cream
go on vacation
cuddle in bed in the mornings after daddy leaves for work
And as far as our grief? Today I am leaning on the scripture that says…
“”So with you, now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.” John 16:22

Cami, I pray that every day your grief will be more bearable and that you will take joy in knowing you will see Lulu again. What a blessing that we can have that hope in Christ.
Wishing you many blessings,
“So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while.” – 1 Peter 1:6 (NLT)
Cami, I’m loving reading your process here in your blog. We continue to grieve with you, and look forward to seeing your Lulu again soon.
