2 Days to Conference Time!

First of all...I am soooo excited for Thursday...I feel different emotions. I am wondering if the relief of getting some sort of help will make me cry the whole time. I feel like I am going to walk into the conference and start crying. I picture myself sobbing through the registration...how embarrassing am I. Second of all, I just can't wait to hear what people say... and to relate to others that have experienced a loss like this... and to work with specialists that are trained to help people through the loss of a child. I am contemplating bringing Riesse...I am not sure I can stay the better part of 3 days without her...I hope it works...but things like this have a way of doing that.

Thank you to everyone that keeps asking about the car wash... fortunately our tax refund came just in time to pay the fee. I think someone bigger is watching out for me...heck I'll just say it...Thank You, God for taking care of this for me.

I can't wait to show pictures and explain how it changes me or helps me. I know there are many people that can't attend this year...maybe the pictures will give them the strength and will to do it next year.

Hey Beth...it's Kevin.

Good luck at the conference. I'm glad that you are able to go to something like this. I think it will help to be around so many other people who have been through similar losses. It doesn't make the hurt go away, but there is solidarity in knowing you aren't alone.

I have Celine Dion's song, Fly, on my iPod. I was listening to it the other day in the car, by myself, and couldn't stop blubbering. I think about Amberlee all the time. Well...anyway, just wanted to let you know that I'm still thinking about her even though I'm the worst at calling and seeing how you guys are doing.
