Five & a Half Weeks Later


It is hard to believe that six weeks have almost passed since we lost our girls.

Time feels like it has stood still and yet at the same time has flown by.


A good way to describe how I'm feeling:

I miss them every day and know I wont be able to see them again in this life, which is hard...Slipped Away by Avril Lavigne.

I can't just give up living because I'm sad because life goes on and I need to enjoy every moment...Climb by Miley Cyrus.

This happened to me because the Lord loves me, and I am grateful for this trial as it is helping me become closer to Him...As Many as I Love, I Rebuke and Chasten Elder D Todd Christofferson.

And, just so you have proof that I am doing "okay"...

...I thought I'd give you a quick look.

I tried to do a more smiley one, but my eyes looked super swollen and squinty, so this is the best I could do. :)

Keep it up, you are doing great. I still think about you and your family daily. You are being so strong!

Aw Sierra. While time will never heal this particular wound there is something nice about putting time between tragedy and the present. I think of your sweet girls and your family often and pray for you always.

Sierra, you are keeping an amazing perspective on this! You're so right about not giving up and enjoying life. You have a wonderful husband and a beautiful little boy that appreciates your willingness to keep going. You'll be able to help others, I'm sure, because of this trial. I miss you and I wish I could be there!
