On Sept. 24th, we had to put our dog to sleep because we found out she had lymphoma and was very, very sick.
In October, my mother-in-law spent 2 months in the hospital, underwent heart surgery, found out she had cancer, and then passed away on December 17th.

But not only that, and perhaps the saddest of all... is that within one week, two boys in my son's school have committed suicide. He is a sophomore in high school, and these two deaths coming back to back has taken a real toll on all these kids. My heart is not only heavy for myself and my losses, but for the parents, family and friends of these two young boys who were so lost and must have felt that there was no other alternative.
I wish I could reach out to all of the kids, wherever they may be, who are feeling hopeless and lost. There is always an alternative. Suicide is a permanent, devestating solution to a temporary problem. I would beg them to please go talk to someone. There are people out there that can help you, and that care about the outcome, and that care about them.
I have slowly been trying to get back into my reading and blogging, but obviously have gotten sidetracked numerous times over various situations. Every time I think I'm getting back in the swing of things, there is a setback.
So I beg you to please have patience and stick with me. I have faith that this is all part of God's wonderful plan for me. And for my family.
I know that soon the sun will shine again.
