A few thoughts.... and Thank You's :)

I wanted to reach out and say THANK YOU to everyone who has commented on my recent posts, emailed or found me on Facebook to chat.  All of the support, even from people I have never met is so generous and really appreciated.  It is nice to know that others know what Jack and I are going through - and that we aren't alone in our feelings.  I seriously can't thank you all enough for sharing your own experiences with me the past couple of days.

While I have some new readers here, can I please ask you all to also say a little prayer for two of my best friends from college that are also going through a tough time right now.  One of them has a brother-in-law in trauma ICU and the other one is about 24 weeks pregnant and just found out her little boy Oliver may have a few complications.  Right now, both situations are a waiting game until more results come back.  Please keep them both in your prayers.

I have found that writing and reading have been helping me out, emotionally.  It is nice to have an outlet to go to and express my feelings.  Another way I have been doing that is cooking and baking.  I came across The Best Frosted Sugar Cookies at Hostess with the Mostess and thought I would give them a try.  I think they tasted great and turned out really pretty.  And the best part is, you can make them any shape or color you want!  These would be great for any holiday or fun party!

We also had two very special birthdays the past couple of weeks that I can't forget to mention.  My wonderful husband, Jack turned the big 3-0 and Velcro Dog, Tank turned 3!  It wasn't the best timing, considering all that we were worried about with Jonathan, but you can't let trials in life stop you from celebrating the good stuff in life as well.  It was extremely low key, but on their birthdays, we just spent time together as a family, had a little cake, (dog) cookies and presents.
