A Good Cause

On November 17, from 2pm to 7pm, a memorial blood drive will be held at Morrison Hall on the campus of SIUE in Edwardsville. Also, since New Moon opens that Friday, November 20, we are doing a Twilight-themed blood drive - inspired, no? We will have several prizes to be raffled off, all pertaining to All Things Twilight. Sadly, neither Edward or Jacob will be present.

I think my girls would have loved Twilight. I bet Jessica would have been Team Edward, but I'm thinking Kelli might be Team Jacob, given her penchant for animals and nature.

On November 22, to mark the 2-year anniversary of their deaths, Applebee's Restaurant in Collinsville will be donating 20% of your total food bill (excluding alcohol) to The Jessica Uhl Scholarship Fund at SIUE and the Kelli Uhl Scholarship Fund. You can either eat inside or you can use their Carside to Go feature. Please stop by, grab some good food and help us raise some money for their memorial scholarships.

Two years. My God. It still feels like yesterday.

It will always feel like yesterday.
But what wonderful things you're doing in their memory - and what wonderful ways to keep their memories alive and now. Just by thinking about who they would have liked in Twilight... They are with you always...

With my devastating loss, not that anyone can compare their grief to another, it was three years before I could even breathe. I know your pain is still very very real. Hugs to you.

I have been following your blog since the accident and I still pray for you. Praying God's comfort for your heart.
