Happy Mother’s Day 5/9/21

Happy Mother’s day! All great women in my life. My mother’s mom passed away when I was 4, but I still remember how kind she was. My dad’s mom lived until I was a senior in HS. She was kind, quiet, and loved books. I still have a couple children books that she gave me…

Zoo Day 5/2/21

My husband and I enjoyed a peaceful afternoon at the Houston Zoo. I always think of Robbie when we are at the zoo. I can picture him with his camera having fun taking pictures. He would have enjoyed the new baby elephant and the new sloth on display.

Virtual Grief Group 4/28/21

I decided to try something new, so I joined a virtual grief group run by a grief author that I like. He has online grief courses, weekly zoom meetings, message boards, and various grief resources for a monthly cost. I am going to try it for a month and see how it goes. I am…

Wisconsin! 4/18/21

We are finally planning a trip to Wisconsin after COVID prevented our travel last summer. I never realized when we put Robbie by my parents how difficult it would be to not be able to visit his grave. If all goes well, we will be there for his birthday and then go off the grid…

4 Years ago Lynn and Robbie 4/16/21

4 years ago today, Lynn and Robbie had fun playing with his new camera. They were shooting pictures and then running back to the camera to look at them. Fun memories ❤️ I really miss seeing the kids happy and laughing together. It still seems like Robbie should walk through our front door.

Jack Hanna 4/7/21

When Robbie was sick, Jack Hanna sent him a letter, signed a hat for him, and sent him a DVD of the Columbus Zoo. It is sad to learn that Jack Hanna has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Robbie wore the hat often when he visited the Houston Zoo and loved getting a letter from him.

Happy Easter 4/3/21

My husband and I visited the Natural Science Museum and Butterfly center this weekend. There was a Rice paper butterfly that kept landing on me, so we felt like Robbie was with us. ❤

Thinking of my Dad 3/31/21

Thinking of my dad today. It is hard to believe that he has been gone 18 years this week due to cancer. We were blessed with loving parents. Many wonderful memories. ❤

Grief Setback 3/28/21

I have been fighting grief all week. After feeling so peaceful, I took one step back into reality after a week by the ocean, and was overcome with grief. The extreme sadness of being back in our house without Robbie. The quiet that I used to wish for when the kids were little is too…
