I am not back 100% yet but just wanted to say thanks and maybe explain only a couple of the things that have made it difficult for me right now.
Just over 3 weeks ago my Grandma (who lives in USA) had another very bad stroke, some of you may remember that nearly 1 1/2 years ago she had her first stroke and we spent 3 weeks with her in America sorting things out, slowly but surely she did return to being fairly well again with only a slight amount of permanent results, but then last summer my Granddad passed and she was left living on her own (with my Aunt a few blocks away) well this time she had another quite serious stroke and now my Granddad is not there to care for her, my Mom flew and is still there now, my little bro came back last night and my sister flew this morning, I was supposed to be going to Las Vegas for a holiday in May and to bring my Grandma home as she was supposed to be here for a holiday but now I am going to bring my Grandma and my Mom back, my Grandma has got to come live here for at least 6 months whilst hopefully she can regain all her strength and motions back and then see if she can return to living back in the states then. Meanwhile whilst this has all been occurring my 13 year old sister in law was put on life support as her liver,kidney and bowels started failing her due to damage caused from an operation that happened last year, my hubby and I were driving around like mad man looking after everyone and anything (dogs my mom’s baby can not be left for more than 4 hours) and our family’s live over 1 hour apart.
I also got very far behind and work and am already 2 member’s short so am working 12/13 hour days. All this took its toll on me and as a sufferer of depression it meant something had to give and that was my life.
So I just wanted to say your support has really helped, I have missed being around and am still not sure 100% when I can return full time but trust me I so need and want too. Up side at least I get 8 days in the Sun in Vegas even if I am looking after everyone and sorting out estate sales for my Grandmas belongings.
I also wanted to take the time to thank my dear friend Christine (who i don’t think will ever realise how much I care and thank her for her support) she today passed on this pretty candle, here is how she explains it….
“The idea…it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for 3 blog friends. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed! Recipients of a bloggin’ blessing may upload the above image to their sidebar if they choose to. If you receive a bloggin’ blessin’ please leave a comment on this thread here so that we can rejoice in just how many blessings have been sent around the world.”
I obviously want Christine to know that she gets it back, it was hard picking 3 people to pass this onto as I have had so many great friends support me, so really this goes to all of you but the 3 in particular are
Laura of Katydiddy Designs, you know why sweetie, you are a true friend no matter how far apart we are
Shannon of Paint Mine Pink, Shann is such a sweetie and always emails me even when she is going through hard times herself
Mandi of Jewellery Craft, such a talented lady and a lovely friend.
Anyway it has taken me over 4 hours with hold ups to type this post so I shall say see you later otherwise I shall never get it posted.
Love to you all
