Recommended Posts

Mari – I hope this combination of medicines continues to work for your daughter. Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving.

Have a great time at your craft show – I’d love to see what kind of jewelry you make! (I do that too.)

Wishing each of you and your families a wonderful Christmas, a safe and very blessed New Year..

Special prayers going out to all first families, especially to the first moms..May you find comfort surrounded by

the love of Your families.

We lift our voice to God above,

As we try to forget all our troubles and woes;

We pray, if just for a moment, we can be happy again,

we will find our way a little easier to go.

Though we may travel through our life, at times with heavy hearts.

God knows the burdens we bear,He will hear all our prayers and

our hearts deep desires.

Even in our days that are the darkest and seem so dreary,

He gives us hope that our days will become brighter and better.

His love and compassion will embrace us, so we can stand tall and hold

our heads high in the face of our pain.

We must be strong in our faith and our hope, feel confident He will walk

by our side, helping to heal our emptiness and lovingly teach us to be able to cope.

One day we will awake and be able to say, Dear God, my shoulders feel lighter, this will be a beautiful

day.

Hello all,

Since in the Catholic faith, it is still officially Christmas until the Baptism of the Lord.. I thought I would share with all this beautiful prayer I was sent this weekend.. This may speak to many, of course to each of us in different ways I would imagine.. Enjoy

May Christmas be a true celebration of Jesus Christ at work in your life

May God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;

The warmth of Christmas, which is love;

The radiance of Christmas, which is purity;

The righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;

The belief in Christmas, which is truth;

The all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Thank you..Isn’t she (Sloane) just gorgeous, if I do say so myself ;)..She’s always had her GRAMA’s heart..Don’t think I will ever get it back. And my daughter is just as beautiful too...

Mari,

Your pictures of Sloane are beautiful! You can tell how loved she is by looking at the pictures with her surrounded by family!! You did not do anything wrong when trying to comment under a picture. That feature has restricted access depending upon how many chili peppers you have (posts). I think you have to have elite standing to do this, so keep posting!!

Thank you Monica,....she's a beauty just like my daughter :)...

I hope to be back on more regularly.. I've been pretty involved w/Brain Tumor groups and reconnecting with family from different parts of mexico, some I hadn't seen since I was four, others I never met until recently..and of course all the other things w/our "new normal" home front.. dd health/dr. app./labs/school , that I leave myself little time to get on here.. NEED TO MANAGE MY TIME..Keep reminding myself of that..

have a blessed day

And speaking of beauty and growing.. All these little ones on here are just beautiful..so many new additions and those that I have seen since being on here are growing up so fast as well.. Beautiful families..

Three years ago today, my daughter, her dad and I welcomed a beautiful little (much too little and much too early) angel girl into this world. Soon after, we were joined by her future parents and our new extended family, who also welcomed her with loving arms. It's amazing how much this little angel has impacted our lives, the love we have for our sweet girl is immeasurable. Not long after my daughter and I became a part of another extended family, this forum. The love and support shown by many of you were/is a source of strength. Thank you.

Happy 3rd Birthday beautiful Sloane, may God bless you with many, many more.

For all You have given us, Thank You God.

For all You have permitted, Thank You God.

For all You have prevented, Thank You God.

For all You have prepared us for, Thank You God.

For the precious little girl who has a tight loving grip on our hearts, Thank You God.

For having created us to love You for eternity, Thank You God.
