Yesterday was our first day back to life… more or less. The kids went to school and I went to my husband’s office to sort things out.
We made it through… but not without tears.
What seems to help the most.. is imagining Peter in heaven. This hope of heaven we all have has never been more real for me. I imagine him in perfect peace and perfect love. Perfect health too. I know he’s spent plenty of time with his mother already and that he knows the answers to things he only imagined while here on earth.
Life without Peter seems so overwhelming… so steady me Lord and be my strength. Help me to comfort and guide my children as best I can.
Heal our hearts with your Love.

I would suggest you view it “unstretched” for better image quality.

I wanted to take a moment to thank my wonderful friend Melissa Jill for the family photos she recently took. I cherish her friendship and her photography is a truly a gift the Lord has given her to share with the world!
To see the entire post go to: Pakulis Family Photos
Well… as you now know, life has been back into high gear a bit! It’s been a very sort of surreal time for us. I continue to try stay focused on my family, my photography and certainly my faith. It is truly what sustains me.
I will simply say this… that even with our new situation, I continue to believe. Through this entire journey, I’ve asked many times, has the plan changed Lord? The answer that I always seem to get is that I am to continue to beLIeVE. So unless I hear otherwise…that’s what I do.
