Much Needed Prayers


I need to ask a favour of you all.  My cousin Skyler is in the hospital and has been in and out a couple of times over the last week or so.  He is having trouble with his breathing and seems to have some sort of infection in his lungs.  They're not sure if it is pneumonia or something else, but whatever it is, it causes him to not be able to breathe very well at all.  He has been very scared and he is a tough kid, so I know that this is really hard on him.  He has other health problems as well which make this even harder.  He needs prayers so very much!!  Also, this past week one of his dearest friends, someone he and his brother Nathan looked up to as a big brother was killed in an airplane crash in Russia.  This was the person we went to Florida in May to visit.  He was a very wonderful man and this has been so hard on both the boys and their family as well as the rest of my family.  Prayers are needed for us all, and for his family too as we try to cope with this.  I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!!  I don't know when I will be able to blog again, but I will do my best to keep you all updated on how things are going.

Much Love, xx


  1. I'm so sorry to hear your cousin is struggling. I will certainly be keeping him in my prayers. Was your friend one of the members of the hockey team? Such a sad piece of news to read. I havebeen thinking about all of those families and friends who lost someone. I'll be thinking of you all!

  2. Thank you Rae Lynne!! Yes, he was part of the hockey team. His name was Josef Vasicek. He was one of the nicest people I've ever known and he loved the boys so much and they loved him so very much. It's all so hard right now, most of the time it just doesn't seem real. Thank you so much for your kind words and prayers, they are appreicated!!

  3. I'm so sorry to hear the sad news. I'll pray for you all.

  4. I'll keep him in my thoughts for sure!

  5. I will definitly keep you and your family in my prayers. I am so sorry about your friend. My BIL played for that team 2 years ago. He was really devastated with the news of the crash.
