Upon returning home from the seder dinner at church last night the moon was shining brightly and we had good intentions of staying up until 1 a.m. to see it at its peek -by 10:30 p.m. I was asleep. Thankfully when I awoke this morning and let the dogs out the moon was still glowing brightly and I was able to pause and enjoy its beauty. It was a beautiful shade as the sunrise in the background was breathtaking ~ giving the moon an orangish glow. I wished we still lived in my grandmother's cottage - the view from the large picture window always created warmth and hope down to my bones.
In celebration of the first day of Spring...the sun us shining so brightly and permeates the entire house. I've opened all the blinds to allow it in. If it was a bit warmer I would even open the doors.
With today being the first day of spring and two weeks from the 17th anniversary I've decided to spend the next two weeks remembering Heidi. My hope and prayer is to share WHO Heidi was before her life was taken from her at such a young age. I want you to KNOW her personality and love for life. I will share WHERE we grew up and the simple luxuries life provided. HEIDI was a strong, independent and vibrant young woman. IS there time in your day to learn more about the face on the missing person's flyer.
Be sure to check the blog daily - I will do my best to post each morning so you have the entire day to read, remember, learn and respond. Use my posts to trigger conversation and memories - in honor and memory of Heidi M. Allen.
