Thank You

Thank you all so much for the thoughts and prayers. My family has gotten through the critical time with all of this and are now looking at the long term. That is staggeringly difficult to wrap our minds around, but it will happen. It is amazing how one day everything can change. The day before you would say, "I don't think I could do it...I don't think we could function if that happened to our family" but then these things happen and you do it. You function. You get up each morning and you deal with the situation. You don't fall to pieces (much). You are there and you are doing what needs to be done. You are still living your life and you are loving your family. You are laughing a little and talking a lot. You feel like yourself. You feel almost normal. But scared. But almost normal.

I am back to work today. This feels foreign. It definitely feels like the wrong place to be. But we are moving forward and part of that is getting back to work. It is hard for me not to talk about details on here, but I only really want to for selfish reasons. I want you all to tell me that it will be okay. That you know people who have gone through this and it was never an issue again. I want comfort. But I completely respect the person who has asked for this privacy. They are so brave and strong and I am amazed by them every single day. So thank you for praying for my family. If you can keep us in your prayer over the coming weeks and beyond, that would be wonderful. I most likely wont speak much of this anymore, but I wanted to say thank you.


  1. Been thinking of you and your family ((hugs))

  2. Me too, been thinking of you lots!

    Of course I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers... for as long as you need and beyond.

    Always here for you, whether we know what is going on or not xx

  3. Papa and I are so proud of you and how you are handling this. We, too, are amazed at the quiet strentgh that she exhibits, the serenity she possess during this storm she possess. I am alot like you..."Let's talk about this and talk it better." You are doing the right thing by going to work...putting one foot in front of the other...rising to the important steps needed.
    You are a beautiful, strong family. You will get through this together and be stronger and grateful.
    Remember, nothing happens to His own that isn't filtered through His hands.
    Know that you are loved and lifted up to Him.
