Memories of Jeremy

Everyone asks me how I am doing lately. I have so many feelings going on right now. I would like to just share a few of them and let them out. This is how I am doing. I lost my best friend, my true love, my soul mate on November 3rd, 2008. I don't know how to act since he left. I don't know where I fit in. Everything reminds me of him. I think of him all day everyday. It hurts so bad. I dont' know what my plans are yet for the future.

Jeremy George Bowles asked me out on a date for April 4, 1997. I thought he was the goofiest man I had ever met. Ever since then I haven't spent a day without talking, texting, or being with him. He was the funniest guy ever. What made him so funny was that he didn't try to be.
Jeremy wasnt' the best at math. Shortly after we were married, Jeremy was going to microwave a burrito. He said, "Sara these are the best if you cook them for eighty seconds". I replied, " Eighty seconds, really? What about a minute twenty seconds?" He said,"No. That's too long. Eighty seconds.........Why are you laughing?"

Jeremy loved Christmas! He was the one that decorated the tree, wrapped all the presents, and made sure that the kids would know that Santa was real. He went out of his way to wrap the "santa" presents in different wrapping paper with different handwriting. He was so quirky, it was awesome! He was so excited Christmas morning that he would video the entire Christmas morning. We always thought those were the most boring home videos, but they were his favs.I didn't want to put up my tree or decorate my house. Luckily, my friend Jill came to my rescue and did that stuff for me.
Jeremy loved me unconditionally. He saw me as a beautiful woman even when I was a fat cow. After I had our twins, I was 190 lbs. Jeremy swears that I was as beautiful as the day we met and he meant it. My least favorite part of my body is my butt. Ironically, that was Jeremy's favorite part of my body. I always felt special when he was around. I miss him so much. I miss feeling that special feeling when he was around. I love you Jeremy! I will love you forever!

Just playing around

Brandon had to come to work with me and we were playing around with the camera. It was snowing that day so I took a few pictures of the snow coming down too. My coworker Kirk is the mountain man looking dude.

I want to thank everyone with all my heart for all the outpouring of love and support that I have received since Jeremy passed away! I cannot find the words to express my gratitude for the service, the donations, prayers, and love that have come my way. So many wonderful people have sent me cards and donations. Strangers even. The benefit garage sale was such a huge success! My wonderful community packed the Dairy Queen fundraiser! I hope Jeremy knows how much people love him and his family. I just can't even find the words. I can't thank you enough. I pray every night that the Lord will bless those who have blessed me so much. I also pray that I may bless others as I have been so blessed. I know that even in these hard economic times, that we can still give of ourselves to improve the lives of others.


So I had flashbacks of taking Jeremy to the hospital this week. It was very nerve racking. I was ready to run away. Brandon had a lump on his neck. His doctor said it is a swollen lymph node. I feel so bad for the boy, he has been home all week from school because it hurts him so bad. He is starting to feel better today. He has been taking tylenol with codeine for the pain and that kid is hilarious when he has had a dose. He comes up with the most random things. What a crack up. I am so glad he is finally feeling better, maybe I will actually get some sleep.

first time

So this is my first post. I don't even have any body to view it but here we are.
