Sincerest THANKS --- Let's get on with it!

Hello everyone!! I'm back....

Before I say another word, let me just say THANKS!!! Thank you ALL for the awesome support. Thank you for the prayers and thoughts. Thank you for the heartfelt words of encouragement. And Thank you ALL for being my friends.

My goodness, I had comments on here from people I've never even heard from before. I was and still am, overwhelmed by the encouraging words you all gave to me and my family.

I must say, this past weekend was really rough for me. And for the past couple of days my stomach has been in knots. Anything I ate just gave me an upset stomach. My MIL says that she thinks I may have a touch of separation anxiety. She may be on to something. All of the feelings that I've had about Markell leaving have just had me on edge. So many emotions. But each day it gets a little better. I guess it has to...I do have a 5 year old I need to tend to and life goes on. I have to keep telling myself, Markell is out of my HOUSE not out of my HEART & LIFE.

But again, I'd like to give my sincerest thanks to all of you who left me comments. And also to those of you who didn't leave one simply because you just didn't know what to say. I'm sure I will have moments where I think about the fact that Markell isn't here. And it'll make me sad. But I just have to learn to trust in God 100% in this situation (as I should in EVERY situation) and see what a masterpiece He makes out of it.

Ok, I know I've missed two of my "normal" posts (Friday Flower Fix and Inspired to Inspire), as I know some of you look forward to those every week. But hopefully, you'll forgive me this time and I'll get back on track with them this week.

But for now, Let's get on with it! Be inspired...I (still) AM!!!

Blessings, Dawn. You have handled this with grace and strength. The Lord really provides, and gives us His mercies new each day. And...I'm okay w/o the Friday Flower Fix. But don't let it slide again!!!! :) LOL

You'll be fine. And of course, he will always be in your heart. How far away is e now, and will you have visits from time to time? Just keep smiling that gorgeous smile!

And .... hmmmm ... you could have your own baby boy, you know. Now, that's not to replace Markell, at all, but because little boys are just as cool as little girls. Just saying.

I am so happy you are feeling a bit better and I KNOW all will turn out for the best, somehow. God will be there with you all and He will work wonders. I know you have faith!

I have been thinking about you all...
Sending love and hugs.

And now, about that flower fix and inspired to inspire thing....don't you let that happen again or I will have to post another list on my blog!! *grin*

Heavens NO!!! This is not "THE" pool, this "A" pool that her godparents have over at their house, that's behind a big 7ft fence and has a cover!!! LOL

Mel, Jude, Diane, Tanisha, Lady Luxie, Gretchen, Cheryl & Susie, you guys are awesome. Thank you so much for the kind words of encouragement. You ROCK!!!

Lynilu, you get a special note...lol. You're totally awesome too. You always have such sweet & uplifting comments for me. Markell isn't too terribly far. He's about 30 minutes away. Fortunately, in the same county. I do HOPE they visit. My sister isn't a very sociable person and we're really not that close. I truly hope she does bring him to visit. And about this having my own son thing...I kinda doubt it :-). I would LOVE to have another baby. However, I'll be 41 this year and I'm not sure my mind...or the lack thereof can handle another child. You've heard of Jayla before...right? LOL

Love you guys!

Oh wow, that is so much to deal with. He is a very lucky young man to have two adults step in and love him so much. I am sure he will come to appreiate what you have done for him. Prayers to you and your family as you deal with the change.
