Good Grief

The Good Grief concert is this Thursday.  We are definitely going come hell or high water.  They will be showing pictures of our Colum (& our family) (hopefully we sent them in time), & if it's appropriate to cheer, cheer really loud for us and probably everyone else.  If you live in Utah, and want to see a good show while helping out others come check it out and leave with that warm and fuzzy feeling.  Make it a date or a family tradition because they do it every year.  This will be our first time attending.  A new tradition.  I secretly hope that next year I will be lucky enough to be pregnant.... oh, I'm crazy baby hungry!  I'm not crazy though, just a little nuts.


If you see me, come and say hello.  Sometimes, I get a little shy and am not used to the attention, but it makes me really happy to meet people who have been rooting for us, and/or reading my blog.

  7. Oh wow... I just watched the Studio 5 segment about what and who are behind "A Good Grief..." what an awesome idea. That mother reminds me of you; one who is brave enough to share her voice and hopefully it has made you feel stronger by doing that as it did her! I read that you were at the fundraiser on Saturday... my mom and I and my two boys had come down from Salt Lake bearing our cookie bars, carrot cake, and poppyseed bread! Must have missed you... I would have loved to have met you and give you my own personal hug, as I have been following your every blog post :) I hope it was a success!

    1. I ate a cookie bar as soon as I got there! I remember seeing the poppyseed bread also! Thank you so much for doing that for us, bless you and your family for helping. You guys can obviously bake, they were beyond amazing. I would have loved to meet you as well, it will happen :). It was a HUGE success, I was blown away by so many peoples efforts and all for my family.... ok now I'm crying. xoxo

  8. I'm one of the mom's who has been helped by a Good Grief. Last year was our first concert and we'll be there again this year. I will be helping Molly in anyway I can that night. I look forward to meeting you. Although I understand the ache of losing a son (my Gabriel at 17 months) I can't say I would've been as strong as you've been going through so much on top of all the grief. I truly look up to you and your family and hope I have the honor of meeting you on Thursday.

    1. Please, let's meet! I don't know your story but I need a fellow mom-who-lost-a-17mo/old-son friend. I think I'm just realizing how much this concert is going to really mean to me. Water-proof mascara and eyeliner I presume.

    2. I will be watching for you. Your definitely right about the waterproof mascara last year my whole family was crying by the end of the night. It was so awesome though I can't wait to go today. I would love to talk to you and visit from time to time we're only 20 months out from losing Gabe and it's so good to have someone to talk to who understands that grief a mother feels. Also we live in Saratoga Springs so we're not to far from you. Excited to meet you!

  9. We are rooting for you from PA. I check in on your blog nearly every day, say a prayer for you, and hold my blond 18 month old boy extra tight. Colum is just precious and I am so very sorry for your loss. That sounds like what I am supposed to say, but it is more than that...I mean it. I hurt for you as only a Mama can understand. I hope a new baby for you soon, and that you feel your Colum with you always.

  10. I was in UT today for a Drs appt. & I thought about your sweet family so much. I told my mom about your story and we cried together. She too just lost her son, my brother in June. We are rooting for you and your amazing family Kelly!
