I am so sorry that it has been such a long time since I have been keeping you up to date. I just haven't been feeling like doing much of anything. But today, I am trying to start a new day. I am up...with jeans on, and am going to try to do something relaxing and outside today.
Folks, I cannot tell you how I hurt. I know it will be a while before I even begin to feel some semblance of a life again. You know..you get into a routine...and then when part of the routine is gone.....you just feel lost again. But with God's help, your prayers and support we will make it!!!
The kids are doing pretty well. Hannah struggles most. Her friends came over last night....it is always a blessing to see her smile. They always bring a smile to her face.
Isaac is doing well. I thank God for the Van Zant family. They have allowed Brady to be here most days and that keeps Isaac well entertained.
Matthew has his own way of coping. He is in his room most of the time. Although he is spending sometime with his friends which I think helps him some.
Rach does miss her friends very much. But I appreciate Sara Privott taking her to the horsebarn to ride horses. She seems to enjoy that so much.
I do want to thank each any everyone of you for all of your thoughtfulness, food, flowers, cards, contributions, and so much more. My family is just amazed at how the church has just stepped in and done all that you have done. My school family has also done so much it is hard to name. You all have shown so much support.\\\\\\\\\
I have heard good things about Chic-fil-a and Papa Angelos. Wow. John has touched so many lives. It is incredible. Thank you to all of you.
There is more to come...we have a road ahead that will be difficult and I covet each and all of your prayers. But I would like to ask specific prayer for these things;
Peace for the children and myself
Sleep at night...peaceful and restful
A quiet mind
Help for when I need to move back into my home
Help for when I have to go through his things...just a peace and help from God.
And wisdom, from above, on how to handle my children, my life, our life, and the future to come.
And Christmas....I can't even begin to go there. We had so many traditions......I just don't know.
I am going to go to facebook and tell everyone that I won't be on there for a while....this will be my release as well as any news I may have.
Please never stop praying.....we love you all....
