Some Time


I just want to start off by thanking you all for your thoughts and prayers over the last week.  We have needed each and every one of them.  After I posted last, my cousin Skyler was flown to Sudbury to get better treatment, and he ended up passing away on that Sunday evening. (not this Sunday just past, but the Sunday before).  This was a huge shock to our entire family since we had no idea he was in such serious condition.  Both my Mom and Dad were able to be there to see him and to be there with the rest of the family.  Needless to say, this has been one very hard week.  I am still finding it hard to deal with both Joe and Skyler's deaths, so I have decided I need to take a little time away from blogging.  I don't know for how long, but I just need a little more time before I am back to myself I think.  I know that the Lord is faithful and He promises to not only be close to the brokenhearted, but to actually heal the brokenhearted as well, so I know I am in good Hands!!  He has been our strength through this all and I would appreciate your prayers for my whole family right now.  This is going to take some time, but we all know Skyler is in Heaven with Jesus where he is completely healed and whole and is having a wonderful time!!  That brings us such comfort and joy because we will see him again someday :) 

Much Love, xx
