Many Tears Shed

It has been a very rough week for me. Yesterday was my friend Julie's visitation and today was her funeral. My eyes hurt from crying. Last evening when I was driving home from the visitation I saw a huge beautiful rainbow and it really made me think of her. Today the weather was to be cold and dreary and it has turned out to be a beautiful sunny day. Her funeral was beautiful and truly was a reflection of her life. She was a remarkable person. Please continue to keep her family in your prayers.

There is one more angel in Heaven

My dear friend, Julie, passed away this morning. She fought a hard battle. I know that she is dancing in Heaven and can enjoy life again. She is pain free and that alone makes me feel better. She was a remarkable woman and I wish that everyone could have known her. She was a beautiful person on the inside and out. She fought cancer for 6 months and was strong every minute of her fight.

It has been a long rough and emotional day for me. I wish that someone would come up with a cure for cancer so no one has to go through what she did. My heart aches for her 3 children- especially the youngest one who is only 2 and won't remember hi mommy. Life is just not fair sometimes but I know that GOD had bigger and better plans for her!

Treasure every Moment!

It has been a rough 2 weeks for me. My friend Julie had a stroke last week and is now completely paralyzed on her left side. She finally came home from the hospital on Saturday so me and a friend went to see her. Neither of us was prepared! We didn't stay long because we couldn't control our tears. They just kept on flowing. She just turned 38 a couple of weeks ago and her youngest son just turned 2. Life is just not fair sometimes. I went back to visit again last night with a couple other friends. She was very groggy last night because they put her on some stronger pain meds because she's having so much rib pain. We had a nice long visit with her and her fiance. It is so heart wrenching to see her like this. Her prognosis is not good and they only gave her 10 days to live.

It has really hit home with me since we are close in age and have a son the same age. She is a strong remarkable woman and really has fought a hard battle. I am thankful for her friendship.

On a happier note- Bradyn is doing well. He is really into singing songs now. Every time we are driving somewhere he wants to sing. He can sing his ABC's (he knows them all), Itsy Bitsy Spider, The wheels on the bus and his newest on is Jesus loves me. It is the cutest thing. He sure is talking up a storm. We went to the pool a couple times this past week. He loves the water. He starts swim lessons again tonight. Our pool closes for the season on Sunday so hopefully we will get there one more time.

Yesterday at school he missed the last step and did a face plant on the floor. He has a huge egg above his eye and it's black and blue. Poor kid. It looks awful.

Bob and I are doing well. Keeping busy with everything. I promise I will try to get those long overdue pics up this week!

Can't believe it's August!

It is a rainy day here for the first of August and chilly. Not you typical August weather. It is hard to believe that summer is almost over and the kids will be back in school soon.

It has been a fun week for us. Daycare was closed this week for the yearly shutdown week. Bob stayed home with Bradyn on Mon and Tues and then I had the rest of the week with him. We had fun and kept bust. It's great to have him feeling well again, finally. Wednesday we cleaned the house (Bradyn LOVES to clean!). Thursday we tried out our new pool in town. It was a lot of fun! They have a great kids section for his age and the weather was perfect. Friday we spent the day at the mall (the boy LOVES to shop- he sure doesn't get that from his daddy!) and then we went to the racetrack to watch Bob practice and we took him dinner.

I have a feeling that Bradyn is going to struggle going back to school on Monday after spending all week with us. He had so much fun at the pool so I think that's what we are going to do tomorrow as long as the weather holds up. We bought some little toys yesterday to take with us this time.

I hope that everyone is doing well. I am going to TRY and get back into my regular posting days. Bob needs to download some more pics for me so maybe I will get them up in the next few days!
