We are back home and I am loving it. Jake and I just finished watching Hidalgo and sharing some pieces of Pineapple Upside Down Cake that we made together with the pineapple we brought back from Hawaii. It was delicious. And our time together was even sweeter. I am so in love with my husband! He is such a great friend and supporter of me. He is so fun to be around and every day that passes I am so thankful that we are together.

Having a spouse to walk through difficult times is a blessing. We couldn't make it without our faith in Christ most importantly, but I also could not imagine walking through the loss of Molly without the support and tender love of my best friend. I am so thankful that I do not have to walk this valley alone.

To update: we are back from our trip to Hawaii and will spend the rest of this week at home. On Saturday we will head towards Estes Park to spend a glorious week in the mountains with my family for our annual reunion. Before we get to Estes, we'll stop at Brainard Lake for a picnic lunch with my parents and younger sister, Laura. Then we'll head to the Ranch we'll be staying at. I am looking forward to next week for several reasons. For one, I have volunteered myself as the head chef for the week and am excited about cooking up all sorts of things and serving my family through my passion of cooking. Another reason I am excited about the week is getting to see my family again. The last time I saw them was after Molly died and I am in need of hugs, talks over coffee, and extra shoulders to cry on. Not to say that Jake hasn't done a great job at those things. :)

We're doing well. We have our good days and our hard days and sometimes we have really hard days, the kind where you feel like the world can manage just fine without you there and where Heaven has more appeal than ever before. But we come out of those days with fresh perspective and of course, Hope. We send kisses, love, snuggles, and balloons to our sweet pea, Molly, as often as we get a chance to. We miss her even more than yesterday.

Mommy and Daddy love you Molly Ann Mutz!! You are a beautiful and treasured gift and we are so thankful for you each and every day!! We can't wait to hold you and love on you!!

Sweet Becca,

I'm happy to hear you had a wonderful time away from home relaxing with your husband!

I have waited a couple of days to comment b/c I am struggling with the words to seems every time I write you I always say the same thing. But know that your continued healing is always in my prayers.

I thank you for your openness in your blogs. I have found my own faith challeneged and strengthened through your's and Molly's story. I hope you don't mind, but I have shared your story on my blog by placing links to your parents' notes. I know that many lives have been, and will continue to be, changed for the glory of God's Kingdom through Molly. I simply want to share the amazing Love and Hope of Christ that has been shown through Molly, you, and your entire family.

I don't know you, but found your blog. My prayers are with you and think you are such a brave woman to share your journey. I know a woman who went through a similar experience and perhaps you can find some bit of encouragement from her site. Blessings to you and your family!

Hey girl, I have loved keeping up with your blog. You are so great at expressing your thoughts. I think it's because of you that I felt inspired to start blogging! Praying for you,
