Hello everyone. Once again I am apologizing to you all. My handsome hubby and I had to race 1500 miles to his mother's bedside just over a month ago. It has been a tough month with her death, the estate legal stuff, my husband's short (thank goodness) hospitalization and the list goes on and on. And in the middle of it all, my laptop died and there was just too much going on to be able to replace it and get it up and running. But we are home safely again and picking up the pieces, trying to catch up on everything left undone this past month at home. I wish a very belated birthday to all of you that I missed. I have been praying a lot and the Cuties have been included in those prayers. And I will ask for prayers for my SIL, Helen who was hospitalized 2 days before we left, had emergency surgery the morning we left for home and is having a very painful and difficult recovery. Yes, we have been under a lot of stress and it just continues along with all of the legal stuff. And now I will start catching up with my Cute family. Thanks, I know some of you have been wondering what happened to me and have been praying. We needed each and every one of those prayers. Please keep them coming.

Sorry it's been so much for you to have to deal with Karen, I know how it is. You are in my prayers and you have been missed. Maybe things will settle down now that you are back home. Know the Lord has carried you both through it all.

Dear Karen, I'm so sorry that your Mother in law has died. We went through it last year so know what you've been through. I know you have a strong faith and felt all the prayers of the ladies on here. May God continue to be with you all. I'm so thankful for your safe arrival back home after all those events. I'll keep Helen in my prayers and pray that her recovery will get less and less painful.
Now it's time for you to renew your strength. God bless, love Chris

So sorry for your loss. The stress that one has to deal with amidst health issues is very tiring....may you find strength in all our prayers.

by meganne 28 Aug 2018

Oh Karen I am so sad for your family's loss. Losing any loved one is so very painful and our parents passing brings an end of an era that we mourn forever. sending my most sincere sympathy to you, your husband, and your family.
It is time now to recoup and garner all your energies into looking after each other. I pray for you to have strength, courage and fortitude in the months ahead.
Huge cyber hugs and much love, Meg
