Catch Up, Ketchup or Catsup? Day 10

 
I think a little levity is due here.  Still exhausted but getting there.  Ya’ll have been such an encouragement to me and I thank you and bless you.
 
My friend’s grandbaby didn’t make it.  Everyone is severely traumatized and could use some extra prayers.  They were able to hold her (she had to be delivered through induction), though, and dress her.  That is such an important part of mourning.  All this because the mom contracted fifth disease early in her pregnancy.  It is so cruel.
 
Our Isabella continues to be the bright spot in our lives no matter what turmoil is erupting.  All she has to do is run into a room and the sun starts to shine.  She is the one our son misses most.
 
That’s all I have to say for now.  I’m feeling the love here.  Bless you, gail

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about the baby…
     
    You know, that is a wonderful thing about babies and young children.  They help us keep things in perspective, ya know?  When they smile, you forget that there’s trouble in the world for just that moment.  When they’re upset, you forget about eveything else and focus on making things better.  As far as they are concerned, as long as someone is feeding them, changing them, playing with them, hugging and comforting them, then all is right with the world.  We can actually learn a lot about trust from our young children. 
     
    Love you!!!

  2. Sending some energy your way my friend.  Yes, there are clouds and darkness in our lives, but we will always find rays of sunshine to lift our spirits.  Isabella is a candle in the darkness, a light unto your path, a angel among us…..a perfect gift from God.  Blessed are the children.

  3. Aren’t babies wonderful? Thanks so much for your comments and prayers. We just found out Surgery will be Wed. Too soon, and yet not too soon.
    Get some rest.
    Hugs,

  4. Hello Gail,
     
    Our condolences to your Friends. It is never easy losing a loved one and being a baby is harder. Our prayers are there.
     
    Nice to hear that your son is doing well.
     
    Peace & Blessings.

  5.  See, I think differently…your friend’s baby DID make it. She (he) went to heaven just assurredly as today is Friday.
    But I do understand the sadness…our oldest granddaughter died few hours after she was born (a couple of years before Grace was born).
    We were aware there was a problem, but no one was aware of how severe it was. She was born too early for her body to handle the problem.
    But we also got to hold her and say goodbye. Some things like this makes other things (like Grace) that much more precious (and like your Bells). We have to love them while we have them, right? 
     
    Glad your son is hanging in there.
    And you, too.
     
    More love to ya~
    do I know your hotmail address?
     
    xoxo

    Know that I’m praying for you on all levels.
     
    I heard I’ve missed a couple of calls? Try me again soon, and hang in there, Friend.
