Fri.Nov. 27

Well, we made it through yesterday. Yes, it was hard. But my thanks to God and his angels that helped me through it. Life will never be the same.

I am up today....dressed....with makeup. Maybe I will be recognizable today. But, I wanted to start out new today. Today is the day. My mom and dad, brother and sister and law, and in laws are going to the house (my first time) to pack John's things away. I can't just send them away....but I have to have them out of my house. Especially the bedroom. This is going to be so hard. But I didn't think I would make it through yesterday...and here I am.

I don't know yet which of the kids will be going to the house with me, I have left that up to them. We will see. brave young man said he would go.

Pray for us as we do this. Pray for peace, contentment, direction.

I will let you know how it goes. Thanks for all your constant prayers and support. We could not do it with them. And continue...please.

It is so good to hear from you. I was not sure if you would continue posting to the blog or not. We are continuing to pray for you and the kids. Please let us know if you need anything at all. We only live a few blocks away and can/will do anything you need.

Saundra, I will be keeping you in my thoughts today as you return to the house. My prayer is that the happy memories from your home far outweigh whatever pain you feel today .....

Saundra, your "mother wisdom" is coming through loud and clear! They need you and you need them so much, especially now! I'm impressed with the courage you're showing. I know it doesn't feel like "courage" to you. But you are doing what you have to do, and you are finding ways to move through tragedy even though you are clearly aware that it will be a very long journey. Give yourself credit for all that you are doing.

I have never lost someone so young, and cannot pretend to be a big source of wisdom. But I know courage when I see it.

We miss John every day at the school. We also miss you. When you are able to return, we will welcome you with open arms!!!!

Saundra, it is good to hear from you through your posts. Your words are an encouragement to those of us who love you and your precious family. Please know that John is missed so much at school, and you are equally missed. I look forward to the day when you can return. My thoughts and prayers are continuously with you and the kids.
