Hasn't Been a Great Day...

>> Sunday, November 15, 2009

or week... or month... or year, for that matter. I'm more than a little depressed at the moment. I spent the majority of the day digging through drawers and closets looking for my teaching license. I need to find it and send a copy to Lenoir Rhyne to finish up my application, and the best I could find was the old one that expired last summer.

I managed to dig up a ton of old memories while rummaging through the house today, but the real kicker was a little memory stick in the nightstand on Jenni's side of the bed. I plugged it into the computer and found that it was literally full of old pictures. Jenni wasn't in most of them. She was usually the one taking the pictures, but remembering all of these times has been... well, we'll just say it's been emotional... maybe it will help to share some of these memories.

 Jenni and I kept Hunter and Ali for a week every summer since we've been married. We might have missed one, I think, but it's a tradition I tried to keep going last summer even without Jenni. This pic was taken at Hickory Dickory Dock just a few weeks after we bought our house in Hickory. Ali was there, too, but she had her head turned away from the camera in every picture so I'm just using this one.

This was taken right after Lindsey's wedding. I don't specifically remember this instance, but I can bet you I started pulling off dress clothes as soon as we got in the car and managed to be back in my t-shirt and basketball shorts attire before we even got home. It that night was like every other night I had to dress up and go somewhere, Jenni was rolling her eyes and laughing at me the whole way home.

Jenni and Maddie... this was at homecoming (Beverly Hills Baptist Church), I think. This picture is insanely blurry, but it is one of the few on the memory stick that Jenni didn't take herself. 

This is Maddie on 9200, playing with Jenni through the glass because she couldn't come in. I'm a little upset that I didn't get Jenni in the photo, but if I recall correctly, this was one of the visits when the doctors had her on high doses of prednisone. If I'm correct, that means Jenni's cheeks were swollen up like a chipmunk's, and she'd have been telling me not to get her in the photo.

This was at one of the beach trips with Matt & Val. I believe this was the trip when Jenni bought a box of cards and we drafted each night we were there. She always claimed to suck, but I believe she won each one of those drafts without much difficulty.

Remember the birthday party from last year that I described a few weeks ago? This was the cake Jenni got for me that night. I was a lucky man until March. Now Jenni's birthday is coming up... not sure what I'll do this year.

Yeah... that didn't really make me feel any better. I think I'll go to bed now. Sweet dreams?

Josh just wanted to let you know that I think of you and your family often. I'm glad your doing ok and futhering some of your interest. I keep up with on your blog . I just want to say that I know your job is tough some times but know that you are touching the lives of those children in many ways. Also the ones you feel you aren't touching today know that you are still planting seeds in them and hopefully one day they will bloom. As the holidays get nearer I know you will go through many emotions lean on GOD and your FAMILY and FRIENDS they will help you through. Like I said I believe you have a very loving and supportive family.
Also here is a suggestion for you to do on Jenni's birthday go visit her grave sight and talk with her awhile. Also you could release a balloon in her honor. Just thought I would mention this . I'm sure you will do something special.
I hope you'all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and May God Bless You and Your Family.
