Thank you

Some of you may know, and some may not, but my life has completely turned upside down in the past 3 weeks. My wonderful step father passed away 3 weekends ago and it was a very heartbreaking event for my family. My mom and step father were married for over 11 years so he was very much like a father to me and we will all miss him greatly. The past 3 weeks have been filled with stress and heartache and a mixture of emotions I cannot even describe. We are all exahuasted from going up every weekend to help my mom get packed up to move. My mother will be moving in with Justin and I for an indefinite period of time until she is able to get back on her feet. This has been a very difficult time for her especially and we are doing our best to be there for her.

With that said, I just wanted to say a special thank you to my husband. He has been so supportive during all of this and has not complained about anything. He has worked hard and helped with the move the best he can. He is not complaining at all about having his "mother-in-law" move in with us, and in fact has been very sweet and supportive towards me during this time as well...although we may hear a few complaints when her dog and bird also move in with us this weekend :)

It will be an adjustment for us all, but hey I guess that is what family is for. You have to help pick each other up when the going gets rough. So here's to you Justin. Thank you and I love you.


  1. Hi-
    I just found your blog from Cindy and Grants. I am so sorry about everything. My father died suddenly when I was 16. I can totally relate on that side of things. Please let me know if there is anything we can do to help. We'll be thinking of you all...

  2. I just noticed the date of your post. I am really far behind,sorry. I should have offered help a long time ago!
