Thankful for Our Life in the Country

Thankful for Our Life This evening I am reflecting on today and being thankful for our life in the country.  Earlier this evening, I was thinking of Faith, when my husband and I were spending time with Joy.  We were having such a wonderful time together.  I found myself wondering about what Faith would be like if she were here today.  I miss her so much and know I will continue to do so as life goes Read More

Missing Faith

As we draw near to Joy’s first birthday, I have been thinking about and missing Faith.  I cannot help but miss her and think of what she may be like today.  She would be 2 years and 3 months old now.  I know she is a wonderful big sister and she would be a great one here if she were here.   We moved in June to IL to be close to my family with a lot of Read More

How Being a Mommy of Two makes me a better Parent of One

As I was playing with Joy the other day and as Faith’s second birthday approaches, I was thinking of the person I have become since Faith died.  I can speculate all day about the type of parent I would have been if they both were here, but that is not the case.  At the end of the day, I miss Faith so very much.  But I know in my heart that having her for the short time Read More

Faith Melody Memories – My “Ah Hah” Moment – Why I Do What I Do

So, I’ve decided I don’t feel like getting the work I need to do done tonight. Just one of those nights. I’ve been taking some pics of my jewelry to update my Etsy shop with and was thinking about why I make jewelry. As I was taking some pictures, I tried on a couple pairs of earrings (one was a pair of freshwater pearls like you have Jen Anderson).  When I tried them on I went over Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 31 – Sunset

Well, today is the last day of Capture Your Grief for this year.  Of course the topic is Sunset.  I did not get a picture of a sunset here in FL, USA today, although I am sure it was very nice.   So, for my picture for today, I am using a picture I took not too long ago in this area, so it is still my picture and it is still around sunset at an area close Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 28 – Reach Out

Reach Out is today’s Capture Your Grief topic.  This evening I was planning to go to bed a bit earlier, however, I wanted to get some work done for someone very special, so I am just wrapping up that work for this evening.   I am not going to mention what work it is that I am doing.  I will just say that I am currently working with someone on a project and needed to get some things Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 27 – Self Portrait

Today’s Capture Your Grief topic is Self Portrait.  This is an interesting topic I think.  It forces us to search ourselves and who we are today; looking through the experience of losing our child.  Today, I am taking this topic question by question…just to change it up a bit.  Here I go! Q: Who am I now in this present moment? A: I can honestly say that I am Sara Bryant, happy wife, happy mom, happy daughter, Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 26 – Gratitude

Capture Your Grief – Day 25 – Earth Remembrance

Earth Remembrance, that is yesterday’s Capture Your Grief topic.  I got a day behind, so I am catching up!!  Gotta stick with it!   Last year, my husband and I planted this beautiful red hibiscus plant in our backyard in honor and memory of Faith.  It is now very tall and beautiful.  I will have to post a more recent picture of it soon, but wanted to share this picture with this particular post.  I really like this Read More
