II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Words don't seem enough....

Hi everyone! I feel like I've been in hiding or something--it's been so long since I've blogged. I just wanted to say a quick THANK YOU to each one of you who left me a sweet, encouraging comment or sent me an e-mail and to my special friend who sent me a card by 'snail-mail'! You guys are so thoughtful. I didn't realize how much it would mean to hear (read) your kind words but everytime I got an e-mail in my inbox telling me I had a new comment on my "Time Out" post, my heart felt loved and touched. I know it's hard to know what to say to someone who has lost a loved one and sometimes its easier to just avoid it...but you guys didn't do that and I appreciate it so much! I truely feel like each comment/e-mail lifted my spirits a little more and encouraged me to not only get through this...but to let the tears fall--thus speeding up the healing process. It's still hard to go over to my mom's house next door and not expect to see my grandma sitting there in her chair where she ALWAYS was--and to see everyone picking through her things like a garage sale taking whatever they want--but I am able to focus now on what her surroundings are like instead of mine...and that is the ultimate encouragement.
In other "news" you guys may remember a while back when I did a post about a friend of mine who I "let down" when I offered to do something for her and then wasn't able to complete the task. Well, I am back to that situation. She's gone on vacation once again and has asked me to cover for her. I feel this is my opportunity to redeem myself once and for all--so I am overwhelmingly busy this week doing about 6 hours per day of transcribing instead of my usual 1-2. Once Monday gets here, I anticipate life getting back to normal..and then I will have LOTS to blog about---first of which is our Sea World trip we took back on the 11th. I have tons of pictures to show you from that and then I have lots of family pics to share from last week. I promise, I'll be back soon! I miss reading your blogs so much too...I've been trying to catch up here and there when I have a spare second or two (even though I haven't always had time to leave comments). Don't know if I'll EVER catch up on Logzie's blog though..that girl is a blogging fanatic! ha ha (I love you T!) Okay, talk to you all again asap! Thanks again for everything! You've been such a blessing to me!

Glad to hear you're hanging in there, Jen. I'm sure it's not easy but it helps when you've got a lot of wonderful family and friends to lend support. Here's to a brand new week :)

Oh hunny...you're welcome! I was thinking about you a lot during that time. I'm glad you got to enjoy a vacation soon after and be distracted some. Hang in there!
