Alora's doing better........


Thank you to all who prayed or stopped to say a thought to her care! She is slowly getting better, still in the hospital, but from what I've been told concerning her tube, the color change from brown to green and starting to be yellowish to clear somewhat is wonderful news. Now we need a poop to make things even better! lol So thanks from the bottom of my heart and my whole family! Prayers really do help!


It's getting close now friends, I'll probably be breaking down in tears nearly everyday now. I DO NOT LIKE ALL THIS EMOTIONAL TURMOIL ! How did my kids grow up so quickly? My baby will be graduating soon. May 28Th. Graduation party on the 29Th. College in the fall. I turned in my keys tonight at my final band booster board meeting. Being on the board these last 4 years have been so wonderful and fun filled. I am gonna miss this next year. There is no marching band at Berry or SCAD. (He hasn't quite decided which one yet)


I've got to pick out pictures for a slide show presentation for the year end banquet at school. My heart is already breaking, how am I going keep from crying my friends? I feel utterly desperate right this moment. I'm not ready to let go......................... Give me courage Lord, for I do not want to break down and sob and embarrass Jacob at the banquet. I do not think John will be attending, which is sad, but he doesn't like anything that relates to the band. But, at least I've had the joy of experiencing the best 4 years of watching my son and I become close, and I hope he remembers these times spent with his Momma. I've tried to give him everything that he has asked for, some of which I wished I'd been able to give him, but I've always given him my love and this poor momma will feel so empty when her baby leaves the coop.

Well friends, my tears have fogged up my glasses and I can't write anymore.

(I'm gonna copy Michele on this)

I'm grateful for all my friends and family!

Senior year for both of my kids was emotional for me, too. I was involved in so many things that they did, like band and athletics, and it was hard to get past thinking that everything was happening "for the last time". I also wondered what the heck I was going to DO afterward! But change is inevitable and we all find our way eventually. You'll be surprised how easily you adjust!

Praise God that Alora is improving! I don't know how you do it watching your children grow up! Cole is almost 4 and I tear up watching him climb a ladder at the playground!

I know how you are feeling. I was a stay at home mom for most of my kids school years. I volunteered with the PTA and helped run the book fair twice a year. I started working in Justin's junior year so no more PTA. Now he is in his second year of college and now my baby is graduating from high school in June and planning on going to school 6 hours away. I am hoping I don't embarrass him at graduation. Hang in there as we made need each other :-)

Thats good news about Alora. Been reading your updates on facebook. Prayer does work :)
Sounds like a tough few weeks ahead...you're a great mom and your boys will have wonderful memories of their high school days and how involved you were.

I am finally getting caught up in my blog reading...so, first I would like to pass on more thoughts and prayers for Alora as she continues to improve!

It is ok to shed tears for your graduating son! You have been so involved in his life, establishing the foundation of love and support. But know that he is a better person because you were there for him and will continue to be. Everyday I look at my 2 sons in amazement as they grow, mature and show love & compassion to those who they encounter. We are doing a good job and we are allowed to cry :)

The tears are of happiness at the job you've done for your son. Time moves on and celebrate the man he's become!
