Heavy Hearts

Apologies for no paper doll page this week. Although I have several sketches, my heart is not in it at this time, and I will not be able to finish and post a fashion page.

Tomorrow evening – October 26 at about 6:00 – marks the first anniversary of the loss of our beautiful daughter Allison in a tragic bicycle accident. We have been missing Allison with a constant hole in our hearts. It has been a rough year filled with grief and sadness, but also hope, kindness, and love. We have families and friends who give us constant love and support. We have journals and pictures and memories of Allison. We know we will see our daughter again.

I tried to think of something profound to say, but others are more eloquent at expressing comfort and love in times of grief. I have learned that as I reach the depth of sorrow, the atonement of Christ can lift me and help to heal the broken heart.
