Latest Journal Update


Hello all! 

It is a beautiful sunny Friday here, and I thought I would write a quick update.  I start a new job on Monday, that I am really excited about.  I am excited to get to work, and do something to make a positive change in the world, but obviously, it is bittersweet, because it is one more step towards "normal" (whatever that means).  I am sure Mari would be proud of the positive strides we are making: finding joy, going salsa dancing with friends, treating ourselves well.  Jamie and I miss her so much, but find a lot of laughter in the Mari isms--the funny stories, cute videos, and memories of the life we led with our girl.

We are working on getting a paver stone placed in Mari's memory at her favorite place in the world, the Seattle Children's Play Garden.  We may put a bench or something as well, so that we have a beautiful place to go and reflect. 

We are so thankful for all of the prayers and good wishes.  We carry Mari with us, every single step of the way.
