A New Day and Thank you, Thank you.

Thank you so much for all your kind thoughts and prayers. It is so appreciated. They made a difference and lightened the load. This has been an extremely difficult couple of weeks but knowing there were so many keeping us in thought and prayer helped tremendously.



Andrea's funeral was Tuesday and the family is on their way to North Dakota where another service and burial are planned. The service here was lovely and I know Andrea was smiling down when Jayde took the microphone and gave an amazing impromptu talk.



Jayde and Hailey are staying here for a few days while mommy and daddy are taking care of business. I have missed my blogging friends but will be making my way around to visit.

Again, my heartfelt thanks to all.

Hi Barb,

I'm so thankful there is such thing as a "blogging community" aren't you? You get to feel like you know these great women out there and yet we've never even met. You've been lifted up in prayer and hope that the coming weeks and months will now hold steps toward happy remembrances and strength to move forward...
Blessings,
Ruth

Sweet little Jayde... so precious to hear of her impromptu speech. You are all still in my prayers. I know it must have been an exhausting week. You are loved and missed, but give yourself permission to have a break. We'll all be here when you get back.

Love,

Hi Barb,
I'm slowly getting my strength back from the surgery this past Wednesday. Frustrated that we still don't know the results, yet. Doing our best to lean on each other and have faith that no matter what the news is...we will get through it.

Thank you for your continued love, support and prayers. It has meant so much to us during this tough time in our life.

love u much.

Hi Barb, I am behind on my visits and just found out about your DIL mother and your son. I am glad to hear that your son is doing better now. Please pass my condolences on to your DIL. Losing a mother is very hard.

Barb,
I am just getting wind of your season of trails here. I am sorry I didn't get over here sooner. I got a heads up this morning at Christie's. Please know that I am joining the ranks of prayer support. May the Lord keep you and bless you, and put His loving arms around you, and hold you and your family up in His great comfort and grace.
