PostHeaderIcon RIP Trent and Pudge

Well Blogger ate my first posting~I am supposing some higher power is saying not to write so much...so now it's gonna be the cliff note version. December has been bittersweet. It's the month my grandmother passed away (this year marks the 15th I have been w/o her). And 2 friends of my children were killed in a tragic 1 car accident early in the month. One of the young men (Trent Mann) graduated last year and Pudge Urda was graduating this year. Pudge's mama is my DD homeroom and Math teacher. They had a double funeral service that was held in the school's gym. To say that it was standing room only would be a big understatement. I have spent alot of my Christmas being very thankful for the ability to hug and love on my kiddos esp knowing there are 2 mama's out there with ♥'s aching and families missing these young men.
Both my kids took it hard..my son because he was much closer in age and hung out with them. My DD because she realized that eventhough her brother drove her nuts, she never wanted to lose him.
This video was made by a young lady by the name of Jordan Miller. Pudge is the one you see in the frame. Trent is the slender one.



On a much different note, I am picking my one word for the year~starting the Art Journal Caravan over at Scrapbookgraphics again and getting things sorted to have a fabulous year.
I will come back later and post some holiday photos and get back into gear with Project 365.
Till next time.

So sorry to hear about your loss and the loss of those kids in your community. Losing a loved one is always so hard and especially this time of year. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers!

there's not a day that goes by I don't think of these boys~what's really gonna be hard is Homecoming at their school~they don't have theres until mid Jan since they don't have football and then graduation because the school is small and there are no anonymous kids~it's truly like family.

About Me

My Photo
Balinda (RebelChick)
Just an everyday girl trying to find my way in the world to live life fiercely and passionately. I was a signature tagger for several years but art journaling has replaced that passion and it feeds my soul creativiely and spiritually. I also homeschool my DD, scrapbook, play around in photography, spoil my cats and drive my hubby insane on a daily basis. My faith in the Lord helps me juggle all these blessings. I keep this blog because it makes me happy. Sometimes I blog a lot and other times it collects a little dust. Thanks for visiting and being my friend.♥
