Do you have any goals for 2009? Whether things you want to do in memory of your angel children or something in general?

One thing I plan to do eventually this year is set up an organization for helping bereaved parents buy headstones that they wouldn't be able to afford usually. They are just sooooo expensive. I am not sure of the details yet, but I'm thinking of having an application process.

The average upright stone ranges from $1000-4000. Flat stones in granite range from $900-2000 and bronze are even more pricey. Then there is the fact you can have them carved different ways, add vases. It's just cray expensive. And a lot of times this is on TOP of crazy crazy funeral expenses.

I do know one of my requirements will be that it has to be at least 6 months but preferably a year since your loss to request help. I've met about 8 other mothers who got one sooo soon and regret it. It gives people a time to put REAL thought into it. Does that make sense?

My goals for this year are.....
To lose weight
To see what's left of my marriage (and maybe try and fix it even though we've tried before)
To get my life on track
and to try and finally be happy

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my adorable siggy.
