by the way...

I got just one little, teensy weeny problem with this whole thing. See, Alissa has gotten all kinds of jewelry to remember Anna. Braclets and necklaces and charms and beads and this and that and all other forms of smarmy parmy remember-y things.

Well? What about me? One penant. That's it. And yes, I wear it everyday, thank you very much.

And, in case you don't really know me, let me tell you that if I were saying this out loud, and you were listening to me, you would first look at me with a mortified look, until you saw the smile the erupted across my face a the end of the last sentance, and then you would realize that I was really joking. Then you would give me a courtesey laugh, or a timid smile, or a cursory grin, or, a glare of death. Whichever suited your mood at the moment.

That was all. Just that one thought. Love you all. Oh, and thanks for the cards. We're still getting them and loving them lots.


  1. You are hilarious! Thank God for humor and sarcasm. I have a feeling that God has a great sense of humor. God bless you and hope you are feeling better!

  2. love it....enjoy that pendant.

  3. Love you Matt! Still praying for you daily (at least).

  4. I love it!! Thanks for the smile!! I was thinking, as I was reading your post...they do have really nice digital photo frame key chains. That's not too much bling for you is it?!?!
    Praying for you and thinking of you often!! Love you all!!

  5. Nice. You are amazing! I am so glad God has given you such a wonderful sense of humor. It feels like His light in the midst of your pain, and it's washes over your face in a big smile and then moves on to ours. Thank you for being real. Your story continues to be a testimony of faith and of God's amazing love in the darkest times. I continue to pray each night for you guys....all of you for you to be comforted in your grief by the love of God
