Thinking of Linda

I went back to work last Wednesday. I felt ready to be at work. My co-workers from the Chief on down were very supportive and helped put me at ease. I was exhausted by the fourth day which was Saturday. That morning while driving to work I had to fight not break down and start crying. I know it is alright to cry, but once I get started it is hard to stop and I can not be crying at work. I was so glad that my first week back at work was behind me.

Last night on Monday I had a voicemail on the home phone from Linda's father John. It was late so I waited until today to call him. It was great talking to him. He mentioned the "Making Everlasting Memories" web site that the funeral home made for Linda. I looked up the web site today and it was so beautiful, it brought me to tears. Paige heard me crying at the computer and was a little concerned. I told her that I was fine I was just so impressed with the website.

I encourage anyone that follows Linda's blog to check out this website. Just type in Making Everlasting Memories and then a place will pop up where you can type in Linda's name.

Before I end this I would like to thank everyone for their support and prayers. I would also like to post that we were able to find the necklace of Linda's that Reanna was looking for. I know that she is truly happy.

Getting back to work helped me tremendously after losing Brian. I needed to have some structure. You definetely feel like you're in a fishbowl. Everyone not knowing what to say...

Thanks for the weblink. I think Linda would appreciate you keeping us all up to date on how you are.

Stay strong. Its tough. I know!

Sabastian - I've not checked here as often as I used to but I need to tell you I thought of Linda last weekend and had the best time. I rode my motorcycle both days on the weekend and thought of her as enjoyed the beauty of the ocean as I was riding the coast.

Sun protection is important, especially when you have fair skin like i do. I found this color changing bracelet by SolarActive that changes color in the sun when the UV rays hit it. This is one of the ways i stay sun aware and sun safe. The bracelet seems to change colors faster or slower depending on how much UV the sun is emitting that day.
They have color change tshirts and color changing beads as well. I got it at the SolarActive website here: http://www.solaractiveintl.com I always recommend my friends to get products like these since they really help to be sun aware. Thanks for the blog and keep up the good work I love reading! You are so inspirational! :)
