January 22, 2013 – Sad that Amanda isn’t here …

I have no words for tonight except that when I was downstairs in the crawl space re-arranging the boxes from the Christmas decorations, I saw a big bucket that had/have her stuffies in them.  I did give stuffies to some of her friends but if you knew Amanda, she was always collecting them.  My favs are her build a bears.  I have 3 sitting in front of her bedroom door.  Will take a pic when I get there.  It’s sad to see them without their owner.  It’s sad to not have Amanda with me in my house.  I guess this is one of my sad nights.  I miss her so much. I find that when I have a strong night (as I had a radio interview tonight talking about Amanda and her mental health concerns) I sometimes crash.  But I did hear that the interview sounded good.  I never really know because it feels to me that I am just babbling.  

Tonight I saw Evander Holyfield’s tweet about Amanda’s Legacy Foundation.  That gives me goosebumps.  How far we have gone Amanda in the past 3 1/2 months.  Holy sh*t (oops) .. Holy

poop!!  Image

 

There’s the tweet above.  Anyways, I am sad so I am going to cry a bit. Maybe eat some chocolate. 

Niters and hugz to both my children and my BBB xoxo

    I have Loved music since when i was 15
    Albums were handed down to me by my older sisters.
    My family was in the Home Stereo business.
    That song is actually a Welsh Lullaby, if I remember correctly.
    He would play it to his daughter to help her go to sleep in the
    1970’s I think.
    Music Is Everything To Me.
    I hope all the info I typed is correct, as I have been up for 19 hours
    or so. Soo busy at work. lots of overtime.

    Thinking of You and Amanda Every Day Carol.

  7. I look at my daughter’s stuffies thinking I have to box them up soon too. I know it’s not the same, but the grief comes in waves of memories knowing the day they first arrived in the home with the joy, smiles and laughter that no longer exist. It will be a job for me in the next few weeks to take a photo, box up and label for another time. I join you in your tears privately each night as I continue to support your battle late in the evenings when I can’t sleep, but look so forward to your positivity, cause and courage.

    I think of You and Amanda Every Single day.
    It doesn’t break my heart, it slowly tears it apart.
    What a beautiful child this world lost.
    Amanda will Always Be Remembered And Loved.
    I also love the poems that someone wrote about Amanda.
