7 Months Without Her, An Award and Many Thank Yous.....

This I am sure is going to be a long one.

Today marks 7 months since I lost my Hannah. I miss her and love her so very, very much. I also thank her and thank God for the many blessings she has brought into my life. Since today is her day I decided to deliver some boxes, blankets and hats to the hospital. It always feels good to do something in her name. I hope and pray that through these things her life will be a blessing to others as well.

I also wanted to post a couple of pictures of her tree. My mom bought the beautiful garden stone for her.

Next I want to thank Antoinette at Butterfly Kisses to my Angel Alyssa Marie for nominating me for this blog award! She is incredibly sweet and caring. I am also posting two beautiful pictures she sent me. Thank you so much, Antoinette!

Rules of the award.....

1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
2. List who gave the award to you and use a link to her/his blog.
3. List 10 things that make you happy.
4. Pass the award on to other bloggers and visit their blog to let them know about the award.

Ok. 10 things that make me happy.

1. God
2. My family (ALL of them, especially my babies)
3. My dogs (most of the time!) Sophie the Schnauzer and Scooter aka Henry the Yorkie
4. Making other people happy
5. People remembering Hannah
6. Thursday nights with my girls :)
7. My Blog :)
8. Finishing a LONG list of projects!
9. Warm Delights (You know, that microwaveable dessert from Betty Crocker?)
10. Shopping (especially at Michaels, but that usually adds to NOT getting #8 done)

I could pass this award onto a VERY long list of people. There are so many women who inspire me on a daily basis--whether with their words or through their actions. I really would pass this on to ALL of you so if you want it, GRAB IT!

I also have a couple of long overdue Easter Thank Yous!

Thank you, Michelle!

Thank you, Lisette!

Hannah, you have blessed me so very much. You have given me more than I could imagine and have taught me so many things. One day I know we will be together again. I love you!


  1. Ok lots to say,
    First Happy 7 Months sweet Hannah!!

    Second, you deserve an award for everything you ARE doing in her name, those unfortunate parents who will need those memory boxes will cherish them forever

    Third, I love the tree, and I love her stone even truly is beautiful

    and finally fourth...just thinking of you today...7 months is a long time and yet the love you have for her is stronger each day...God bless you

  2. omg that garden stone is just gorgeous! do you mind me asking where she got it? I would love to get one to honor my daughter.

  3. Happy 7 months Hanna. I think what you are doing in her name is wonderful. I love the boxes. You are so talented and creative.

    I love her garden stone, it's beautiful!!! Where did she find that at?

    The award, you deserve it, good for you!

  4. All such beautiful pictures. Hannah's tree and stone are breathtaking. Thinking of you and sending love on Hannah's Day. xo

  5. April was the 7 month mark for us too.
    Hannah's tree is beautiful! And what a precious garden stone from your mom.

  6. Thinking of you and Hannah today and always!

  7. I echo everyone else...the tree is beautiful and I love the stone. I may have to get one for Matthew's tree (which is also a weeping cherry, but I missed its bloom this year--kinda appropriate, I guess).

    I completely agree that you deserve that award! You have taken such heartbreak and done so many positive things with it, even as you still grieve. Very inspirational!!

    Lots of love!!!

  8. Love the colour coordination around Hannah's tree with the stone. It will look lovely when those impatients start blooming like crazy! I think of you both always. :) Hugs and kisses!!

  9. Happy 7 months sweet Hannah!! Thinking of you both. I just love her tree and garden stone! That is simply beautiful. XO

  10. Happy seven months in the arms of Jesus! Katy, you have shown such love to your sweet little Hannah! God has and is using Hannah in amazing ways! Because of Butterfly Mommies, I seem to have found a group of people who are walking the same road that I am on. Today is Eli's two month anniversary in the arms of Jesus. God bless you! Saying a prayer for Mommy and family today! Heaven is so very sweet tonight!Love and hugs!

  11. Sending you hugs. Thinking of you and your sweet hannah.

  12. Doing something in Hannah's name on her seven month anniversary in Heaven is so sweet - I'm glad it made you feel better.I know you miss her so very much. Her memorial tree and area is so pretty! What a sweet place to look at and reflect on your sweet baby.
    God bless!

  13. It's amazing how you can actually see your love for Hannah. It's in everything you touch. Your love overflows for her. She must be so very proud of you. You've taken your love for her and shared it in so many ways. Your love for her helps others heal. Hannah couldn't have a better mommy.

    Happy seven months in heaven sweet baby I miss you and send my hugs to heaven.I can't wait until the day I can watch you hug your mommy. I can't wait too see your smile. I bet it's just as big and bright as your daddys and as pretty as your mommys. I bet your smile could make anybody smile just like your brother. I'm looking forward to the day I can hug you and see your smile. Have fun until i get there.

    Love you
