My New Blog Title

As the days go by and I often find myself  in quiet moments reflecting about Porter, I keep going back to what this life is really all about.  What is my purpose here personally?  What relationships have I formed?  What have I done for my fellowman?  What is most important in this life to accomplish while here with our mortal body?    I drive down the street and nothing seems to matter- the stores, the gas stations, the restaurants, running errands, cars, the everyday hum-drum, etc.  It's all just stuff.  My perspective has changed so much.  Life just feels so different now.

I appreciate and love my daughter so much.  She decided to help me with a little refreshing uplift of my blog.  I was chatting with her about the old title of my blog and how I felt like it should say "All Good Things Come...To An End".  She said it sounded depressing.  I was partly teasing with her of course but we tossed around the idea of a new title and have come up with the one you see in the heading, "You'll Always Have My Heart"  A friend gave me a beautiful statue titled Heart of Gold, when Porter passed away.  The caption on it reads "You'll Always Have My Heart" and instantly I cried.  I knew this was to be my new blog title.  Each one of my children hold a special place in my heart.


***ATTENTION!***
In the course of my daughter rearranging and playing with my blog background, she deleted all my friends! THE NERVE! (this is Kali) If you were lost along the way, please leave a comment with your blog so my dear, sweet momma can find you!***

LOVE the name.
I have always related to the saying about "our children are our hearts outside of our body"
Beautiful.

I thought about you quite a lot during conference. There seemed to be a number of stories about people who lose their loved ones, specifically their children.
I just can't imagine.

I have three dear friends who all had to say goodbye to their babies. I've seen the Savior pick them up & carry them until they could balance on their feet again.
I know you're being held, but I'm still thinking of you.

I went through a few blog title changes a while ago too. I never would have thought, but it feels wonderful when it finally fits perfectly. Kudos to you for allowing yourself to adjust as your heart needs. That alone will bring more SONshine and Spirit into your re-focused purpose.

What a good example you are my friend :) Kali too :)

I'm so sorry for your loss. I found your blog through Mormon Mommy Blogs. Your story has touched my heart. I have three young boys. I can't imagine having to bury one of them. Please know that your tragedy has changed my life. I plan to hug my little babies much tighter tonight. I'm sorry you don't have yours, but know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
