"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

A Tree for Quincy

I've blogged before about Quincy.  She's our friend's daughter that was killed in an accident along with her grandparents when she was only 20 months old.  We think of Quincy often at our house; what she might be doing in Heaven, what her favorite treats are, if she has any toys- things like that. 

When I think of Quincy it's a little different.  My mother heart aches for our friends and how difficult life, and especially the holidays, must be missing their perfect daughter.  It's a pain I don't even want to imagine, let alone experience.  Thinking of Quincy makes me hug my children a little tighter each day, and be a better mother.

This year Brady and Angie did an Angel Tree at the Festival of Trees for Quincy.  It was decorated in babies as Angie always calls Quincy her "doll."  We miss Quincy and wish she could still be here, but I am still amazed at all of the good she does in the world, even while she's away.  She's a true angel.
