OH! What a celebration it was!




I have been searching for the words for almost 2 weeks now. I still haven't found them. I don't think I ever will. I still cry every.single.day for Tuesday and her family. I can't even imagine how they do it. Scratch that. I can! They are amazing people. All of them. JK, Charley, Spencer, Axel, and Piper. And it doesn't stop there! The extended family! They are all awesome. With each other and with God, they will get through this. Jess, you are absolutely amazing! I love you!


I am sure you are all wondering how I know Jess. While I was pregnant I went on line looking for support. Mental. Emotional. Just support. I found this AMAZING group of women. I only posted a few times, but read along often. After Sean and Owen were born, I found I needed them more and more. I started posting every day. Two times a day. Three times a day. OK...The truth is A LOT..and I will leave it at that. I met Jess, Tuesday and Piper on a trip to Roanoke, Va. in June of 2007. There were 4 of us there for the weekend. My feelings for JK were validated that weekend. She is an amazing woman. Even though this was the only time I met Jess in person, I still felt pretty close to her.

Please continue to pray for the Whitt family. That they will find peace in this. After meeting them, I KNOW they will get through this, and they are stronger as a family for having to go through this.

Please go to Jess' blog to read her last post. She has an amazing way with words.
You can also go here and here to read more great recaps of the weekend in CO and see some great pictures.

That is a fantastic picture of all of the balloons! I haven't seen any besides this one that show all of them in the air like that.

So right and such a beautiful way you described Jess :)

What a wonderful post Terri! I love it! The Whitt's will forever be in our hearts. I haven't seen Ryan so sad over a death, so it shows me how much Tuesday touched our lives.
