July 17 – The hardest thing ….

I finally got up enough energy, courage and strength.  I have finally opened the door to Amanda’s room!!!  I would say that from October 10th to present, I have only entered her room 4 times.  All 4 times I cried.  I am not sure what allowed me to do it except that a voice inside me told me it was time.  Her room is alive with her favourite stuffies.  🙂    Many of you may be wondering or thinking … I wonder what the room looks like.  When it is time, I will add a picture.  Right now, it’s not time yet.

To Michael Bell .. thank you for sharing your words today.  Pink, #10, Amanda.  You are the greatest …

To the Keefe family .. Hang in there and Stay Strong!!  We are all with you and will help as much as we can.  The Amanda Snowflake Army is yours for the asking.

To everyone else .. Thanks for being there for me through all my moods and sleepness nights.

Last night was a 4 a.m. morning/night, it’s off to bed.

Hugz … xoxo

    Working up the courage to enter Amanda’s room must have been very difficult, however, I can’t help but imagine that keeping her door closed must have been difficult also. I think that entering her room must give you a deeper sense of her presence, of her essence.

    Carol, I hope that when you share with us a picture of her room, you will also show us the memory blanket. I am really looking forward to see that!

    I think about Amanda and your family every day. I also hope that all the culprits will be found and that they will get their comeuppance.

    I am so sorry that you have been put in this position Carol. I cannot even fathom the pain you have been left to deal with. I pray for you everyday. I also pray that justice is served and the culprits are found. Shame on these pathetic low-lives that feel the need to destroy and damage other people’s lives for what, their own amusement? How sick. God is watching. Sending you healing love always! ❤

    I wouldn’t know if the pain of entering Amandas room will ever go away. I can only hope for you that with the passage of time, it will get a little bit easier and being in her room will give you some kind of connection to Amanda and bring you some kind of comfort. ❤

    Carol, I think this quote is beautiful, and I hope it has meaning for you, as there is not much else I want to say as I ponder the difficulty in entering Amanda’s room.

    Opening the door to Amanda’s room would be a very hard thing to do, ( and It is OK to cry )
    Doing that shows that you are ‘getting stronger’ And I for one
    will continue to be here to help support you in every way I can.
