Life Goes On

With everything that has happened in the last 8 months, life unfortunately just keeps going on.  A lot of the time I wish I could just get everything to stop for a few months so I can just deal with what has happened, without worrying about the every day things as well.

Unfortunately that can't happen, so I try to just continue doing things that I used to love, hoping that in time I will feel like my old self again.  Now that I'm working I hardly go to the gym anymore because I just don't have the energy to go after work, but I still try to go at least a couple of times a week, when I am feeling up to it. I used to love going to the gym and would go up to six times a week, but now I go more because I know that exercise makes me feel better physically as well as emotionally, even when I don't feel like doing it.

Most of the day my thoughts are consumed with Aaron and Noah, but every now and then I realise that I've been doing something and actually enjoying it, without constantly thinking about them.  Sometimes I can be in class at the gym and will be enjoying the music or talking to my gym buddies, but then I can look down and will see my necklace which has Aaron and Noah's names on it, or will see my engagement and wedding ring, and then am lost again in my thoughts of Aaron and Noah.

Often on the way home from the gym, Kobe and I call into the cemetery to visit Aaron and Noah's graves.   When I look down and see my sneakers it often hits me how strange my life is at the moment, as I'm trying to do 'normal' every day things, but feel anything but normal. 

Unfortunately life continues to go on, and I'm trying my hardest to be a part of it and feel normal again, even if it means just going to the gym a couple of times a week when all I can think about is that Noah and Aaron are no longer here with me. 


  1. You don't know me, but I had linked to your blog from NieNie's blog. Anyway, this post made me thing of another post with similary thoughts and I felt like maybe I should pass it on:
    Maybe it will be of help. Take care!

  2. keep your faithand in time you will see the light at the end of the tunnel,you will never be the same again as you were ,but you will be enriched.

  3. Dear Lisa, You're such a strong woman. Going to the gym, it's great that you did it. I can imagine that the only thing you want is sitting on the couch. But you are such a strong woman, working, taking care of you're kids, doing work in you're house and even going to the gym, it's great. Thinking of you every day(and reading you're blog) here in the Netherlands.(sorry for my English)

  4. Oh I love you... thinking of you every day and wishing I could help carry the heart ache...

  5. I can't remember how I found your blog- but I've been reading for awhile now. I just wanted you to know that I think of you every single day. My heart breaks for you- as I read about your memories and your sadness at loosing your son and husband. I wish I could do more- but all I can do is pray for you. We don't know each other- but we are sisters in the gospel. You have a beautiful family and your boys are so blessed to have you as their mother. You inspire me to be better and to try harder. Thank you.

  6. You are doing everything you can. In time, the Lord will do the rest.



We are so grateful for everyone's love and support, and appreciate your comments xoxo
