Just letting you know.....

Just letting you all know that I am still here....I have had the "regular" flu, my husband was in a bad accident but by God's grace was not hurt, he has had to have hand surgery though for a previous injury, some other things are going on also within our family, and we got word yesterday that the room is ready at the Veterans home for my momma. Times are really tough around here right now for that reason, although it is the absolute best for her, it is so hard. My Daddy is truly my hero, and as you can imagine he is going thru all the emotions that one would expect a spouse to be going thru. He feels that maybe he has not taken good enough care of her....which is just not true he has done a tremendous job and he is our Hero...truly.

I want all of you to know that even if I am not blogging right now as much as usual, you are all on my mind and in my thoughts and prayers. I finally made time to see Catherine's precious Hannah's face yesterday and she is gorgeous! Please don't forget about me, please have patience with me I will be back.

I am ashamed of myself because two days ago my daughter Astrud asked me, " Mom when you feel better and when things are situated with Nonny will you start cooking supper again?" It made me feel horrible and it made me realize that I need to get my emotions in order. Even though I am going thru this with my momma, I am still a mother and need to take care of mine.....I was so ashamed of myself and I instantly knew what my mom would say to me. So I will get thru this week and I will be back. I am so glad we are all friends, I feed on all of your energy, faith and friendship! Thank you so much.

I want to share a few pictures with you, just because they are close to my heart...

Just look how little my mom looks sitting on the couch holding Franks hand....I treasure these pictures.
This one is of my Momma holding my husbands hand, it is just so sweet to me.
Here is my Momma walking up to my daddy and giving him a kiss....you never know what she will do and this was just so nice....

Do not be so hard on yourself. It is hard when you are spread thin and your heart is hurting and in a million pieces. Take the time for what is important. One day at a time and new things will become routine.

It is hard but you are supported by many people who care for you.

I am glad that things are working out and that hubs is okay.

Keep smilin!

Tyrone & Bailey said...

I have missed talking to you but you are never far from my heart or my prayers! I certainly have not forgot about you! You are a phenomenal woman and have nothing to be ashamed of! I am sooo glad that Frank is okay, and I will be in prayer for peace for you and your whole family over your mom's move.

Just whenever you're up to it ('cause I know it'll make you smile) I put up a post a while ago that has a pic of my 4D ultrasound....you can see our little girl so pretty!! and you can tell she has Tyrone's nose!! :) Anyway, I miss you and am not going anywhere, I'll be around when you come back!

Love you!!

I was trying to think of something really profound to say...but all I came up with is:

Big Hug

Don't worry about us, we'll be here when you're ready and able...take care of your family...


Buckeyes & Eggrolls said...

Kristy, I'm so sorry your family has had so much sorrow of late. I'll be praying for God's healing hand to be upon you so that you can all feel 'back to normal' soon. I'll say a special prayer for your father as he deals with the grief of placing his soulmate, friend, lover, wife where she can be cared for and be safe. This is such a hard time for everyone involved.
Hugs and Blessings

"Whenever I am afraid,
I will trust in You."
Psalm 56:3
You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Psalm 56:8
Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!
For my soul trusts in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by.
Psalm 57:1

I am and will be praying for your family my friend....
God's peace...

Oh Kristy...you have been through so much. I am thankful that she will have round the clock help and you can get some rest. Those really are the sweetest pictures. You are an amazing daughter, mother and wife my friend.

Please know that I am thinking and praying for you during this time. Your pictures are so sweet. Dont forget your a wonderful Momma yourself. I admire you so much. What a strong women you are.

tracey said...

Sometimes we need other people to take over for us. Let your family and friends help you in your time of need. Let the doctors and nurses take care of your mother in the manner that she needs. You are a strong woman and you will get through this.
I am so glad that Frank is ok.


Polar Bear said...


You and your family have been on my mind. Sending thoughts and prayers your way.

Love you and tons of hugs!

You are in my prayers.

Domonique said...

Aunt Kristy, I can't pretend to know your pain, but I do understand what it is to hurt. I pray for you all everyday. I love ya'll more than you will ever know. These are lyrics to a song by Yolanda Adams called "The Battle is not yours" It is always very encouraging to me when I'm having a hard time with things. I hope it is helpful to you as well. Look up the song and listen to it it is really great. I LOVE YOU.


There is no pain Jesus can't feel
No hurt He can not heal
All things work according to His perfect will
No matter what you're going through
Remember God is using You
For the battle is not yours
It's the Lord's

There's no sadness Jesus can't feel
And there is no sorrow
that He can not heal
For all things work
according to the Master's holy will
No matter what you're going through
Remember that God is only using You
For the battle is not yours
It's the Lord's
