Hug your mother-in-law, if you can...

My family has had a helluva weekend...
Our hearts are so sad.

My sister is doing well physically, but their hearts are breaking over and over.

My daughter's best friend is struggling with a death of a neighbor (an 8yo girl died on have probably seen it on the news if you are in my area. My oldest daughter was on the property at the same time this accident happened. Not near it or involved...but shaken to say the least. Her best friend, G, is completely shaken to the core...dealing with something that a 12yo should never deal with. Our prayers are with the family of the girl who lost her life...and the family of my daughter's best friend. She has some healing to do as well...

And my mother-in-law...such a wonderful, kind, caring, welcoming, thoughtful getting closer to heaven. It is any day is so hard to think of. My husband is beside himself...and I am struggling to comfort him. We really don't know what to do in a situation like this...thankfully, never having to deal with it before...
My MIL has so many family that will miss her terribly.

Please keep my family in your prayers...if you read my blog.
Please keep my husband in your prayers as he comes to grips with the loss of his "mom".
Please keep my children in your prayers as they deal with alot of things that children should never have to deal with...but unfortunately have to. Saying goodbye to your "gramma" is so difficult.
Please keep my brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, niece-in-law, nephew-in-law in your prayers...they are so sad, too.
Please keep my sister and brother-in-law in your prayers as they grieve their first child.
Please keep my mother-in-law in your prayers - for comfort and peace...

Finally, please pray for my father-in-law as he cares so tenderly for his wife of over 50yrs. As my SIL put is so specially...he is fulfilling his marriage vows as promised, caring for his wife in sickness and in health.

I know that this is alot of stuff to pray for, but, please, just mention them once....

God Bless.

And hug your mother-in-law, your kids, your hubby....heck...hug 'em all...

So sad today...

My sweet sister and her husband found out that they lost their baby today. She was about 9 weeks and loving every nausea twinge and nap that she needed to take.

Today, they are grieving. Deeply. Sadness that I cannot comprehend, but want to take away from them.

If you read my blog...please say a prayer for Mandy and Steve.

I haven't posted for awhile because I can't post any pictures to my posts. My camera and my computer are no longer communicating.

I have decided that I will continue to blog, for myself, as a kind of therapy.

There is so much going on in this head of mine. Sometimes I want to scream just to let a bit out.

Spring is here. And I have this overwhelming desire to simplify my life...and all that is caught up in that net.

I need to simplify our home, our schedule, my brain, my faith....

I need to settle down and focus on what is important. My faith, my family, my marriage and ME!!!

I don't know where to start. It overwhelms me at the task that I have set before myself. The complications that are around me have tied themselves in knots and tangles.

All that I know for sure is
- I love my husband.
- I love my children
- I love my family
- I love my Lord

These are the things that are important to me. These are the focus' of my life.
