Our Reality

Danielle is a mother of two gorgeous kids & married to her best friend. She is a grieving mother trying her best to write through her pain.

The whole world isn't bad, some people just need a little love and comfort.

Our days are different.

Righley is my 8 year old boy. He is 8 and Presley was 3, when we lost her.

Righley can go weeks and just seem okay, but then there are those days that have happened more frequently lately than ever.

This morning we woke up like any other day. I had a dream about Presley the night before, but it wasn't a life changing dream. It was just a normal dream where I didn't let go of her, and we were doing "normal every day" things.

I took Righley to school this morning, which doesn't happen as often as I like. On our way to school, we heard Presley's song. It was the song that I used to sing to her when she was little, and it was the song I walked down the aisle to Lance.

As soon as the song came on, Righley started singing it. Before he got out of the car, he said, "I hope Presley heard us sing to her." I just replied, "me too." I waited until I was out of the school parking lot before I had tears rolling down my face. It was like a water fall. The one morning I decided to wear makeup, in seconds it was gone.

The sad thing is that this is our reality. We remember Presley through memories, and I'm not sure if any of us know how to grieve. Although I know everyone has different ways of grieving and not even one person is always the same... It's still hard to figure it all out.

My days are always different, but now more than ever... my days are filled with daily doses of waterfalls.

It wasn't until I was almost to work when I realized I had a notification on Facebook, and Carrie who actually sang at my wedding that exact same song had posted her sweet girl singing the same song.

It's crazy how little things can be a reminder than Presley is still here in a way. She reaches us in ways that we can't understand, but hopefully one day we can all make sense to things that happen to us.

People all over the world is grieving, and I think it's okay to know when you are. The whole world isn't bad, some people just need a little love and comfort.

Presley,

I love you way way more.

Presley

Born July 20th, 2013. Presley Grace was my mini-me from day one. She was full of love, laughter, and could light up any room she went into. Everyone that knew her loved her, and even people who didn't know her still loved her.

On May 13th, 2017, Presley was in a tragic accident where she lost her life. We only had three years with our sweet girl. This blog is to help myself, and hopefully others who are grieving as well.
