From the heart of Cassi

Celebrating a beautiful marriage!!

August 21st would have been our 19 year wedding anniversary.  SO in honor of our love and relationship I wanted to share the last anniversary letter I received from you. Babe, My goodness, 17 years.  What a beautiful accomplishment.  Six and half years of dating and 17 married and we get to do it all…

I want to live like that!!!

As I prepared my heart and mind for the one year anniversary of my loves entrance into Heaven I had spent the two days before August 13th alone praying, reading, reflecting.  I spent many hours rereading the cards, letters, messages that hundreds of family and friends sent me over the year. God impressed several things…

The power of the written word

In a day and age of texting, emails, tweets and Facebook messaging the written word does not seem to be as popular.  I like a lot of the world  text, tweet, blog, Facebook and all that stuff but I do still love to receive a written word in the form of a card or letter. …

He is still the man of my dreams…

After struggling to fall asleep Thursday night, I think I laid in bed for an hour until after midnight and then once I was good and asleep I heard a little voice come through my door saying, “Mommy I pee peed in my bed”, it was 1 AM and I was forced to get up…

That which does not kill you makes you STRONGER!!

I sit hear on this Monday morning reflecting on the past several months and I think about that popular saying, “that which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”  I think to myself that what I have gone through since Todd’s passing has definitely by far been the hardest thing I have walked through in my…
