  2. Yikes.......maybe next time I need to preview my comments before posting them so I can do a little spell checking when it's so late at night. That should be "stepping stool"....
    Love, Val

  4. Beautiful they were. I miss the days when my eldest, Heather, and her friends would get all dressed up and out they went for the big dance. Morgan is so beautiful in her own way but different and not at all interested in the whole dance thing so I have to rely on those memories and the ones you have shared with us all tonight. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Haven't visited your sight in awhile. I came here today and read up. WOW, how you have inspired me. I sit here with a smile and tears at the same time. I read back about Daves two year passing. I am reminded how precious life is. The pictures of homecoming and football are great. You and the kids are certainly living life and enjoying it with all the it has to give to you. Your posts show this! Thanks for being awe inspiring to me. Kelli

    Pretty dashing young men in the Meyer house! I know Dave is proud. Of course as a fellow sentamentalist, I would also say, wow...where has the time gone.

    My mom used to say when I was a young man that she could see the "shadow of the 'someday' man" in my face, my eyes or my expressions as I sat between boyhood and the world of men. I see glimpses in Ryan now at 13 and certainly see more than a shadow or hint in the boys I once knew in your house.

    There is a hint of sadness for the sentamentalist as you know Shell, but at the same time it brings a big smile to my face and I am excited to see these growing men take on the world.

    Hope that wasn't too sappy, but it comes out once in awhile :o)

    Love you guys!
    Will, Stacy and the boys

  8. My goodness, they are MEN !!! How handsome, sweet and fun. Looks like a great group too. Love homecoming, neither of my boys school had football so our homecomings were very lame. Missed that. Enjoy these times as hard as it is Chelle because they disappear all too quickly.

    love u.

August Blog Challenge - Day 9

List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how.

Okay, on this blog you've read a lot about my mom and dad.  And Dave, Doug and Kyle.  And Kenny, Zach, Kaitlyn and Kailee.  These people are my family.  Everything I do, I do for them.  It would be impossible for me to adequately describe their influence on me.  And I've talked about them a lot.  So I'm just going to say a word about each of them and what they've taught me - and then I'll go into 10 people outside that circle.

Mom taught me to think of others.  Dad taught me to work hard.  Dave taught me to love unconditionally and out loud.  Doug taught me to never give up and to enjoy each moment.  Kyle taught me to be a mother.  Kenny taught me to embrace the life you have and to laugh.  Zach taught me to think things through and go 100%. Kaitlyn taught me about honesty and that there is always sunshine, even when you can't see it.  Kailee taught me new aspects of faith and faithfulness.

Tattoo

So.
I got a tattoo.  Christine actually wrote on my facebook post, "You??"
Yeah.  Me.

I've been thinking about it for six years.
I finally decided that if after six years, I still wanted it, maybe it was time.

The writing is Dave and Doug's.
Taken from notes they wrote me.
They always signed their notes the same way.

I thought I was doing it in memory of them.
To mark the way they are always on my heart.
To have a visible reminder.
A permanent keepsake,
always with me.

And while it is that.
It is also more.

I didn't realize it,
until afterwards.

It's a marker.
A closing of a chapter.
Closure, if you will.

I don't know how to explain it.
The minute it was finished,
I knew.
I knew something inside me was different.

Dave,
and to a lesser extent,
Doug,
have been part of my every thought
every day
for over 10 years.

Daryl saw the Dali Lama this summer.
One thing he learned:
Interrogate your truth.

I've been thinking about that a lot.

Interrogate implies a…
