I have started writing our story about Audrey's diagnosis and everything that has happened since then. It is going slow because I sometimes choose not to write based on - I don't want to cry and feel like garbage. I do have a few pages (totally rough and not edited) and I will eventually add more. But retelling the story brings up so many emotions and fears about the future.

I think it is so awesome you are writing it down. I am sure it is hard to relive it, but you never know when you can use it to help someone else. Or as just a reminder to you how much you were blessed in a completely difficult time. There are so many things I wish I had written down but didn't and it isn't the same when you try to go back years to remember just how you felt. I wish I was better at keeping a journal. My blog is kind of my journal-or at least my scrapbook. And I know you read it and thank you for leaving comments. :) It lets me know even though I am a slacker at keeping in touch, you still love me. :) I wish there were more days in the week and that the extra ones could be used to travel up to Asheville to visit! I will find the time soon I hope!!!!

It is hard to remember hard times--writing helps you clarify your thoughts and see things you learned that you had might never thought of before--you would never have chosen to go thru this but it will give you invaluable gifts for the future--That is what the Atonement does--makes these horrible experiences not only bearable, but refining and in the end, blessings.
