OT, To All

yachter123March 4, 2011

Our family has been going thru some pretty serious struggles and I apologize for not commenting on everyones beautiful tables.

Sometimes late at nite, after tossing & turning, I get up & look at the tablesettings here. It really helps draw me back to reality, but I have little time & energy to post right now.

I want to say that all the academy award tables I saw were just so creative & beautiful that I don't want any of you to think I just ignored them.

Like Karen has said, this place is family & it has also helped me very much to come here & try to relax & enjoy all the beautiful decor that you all put so much time in to.

Just know that I appreciate seeing all of it, even when I don't get to comment!

Again, thanks to all of you.

I'm sorry to hear you and your family are going though a rough time.
I'm praying that everything will work out peacefully for all of you.
It's good that you come here to find some peaceful moments and relieve some stress. Many times I find myself doing the same.
Hang in there and remember, we're always here for you.

Yacht, my prayers continue for you and the family. You've all just gone thru so much and it seems like it will never end. I know what a toll its taking on you, so the fact you could post and let us know you were 'here' during all the turmoil is so sweet of you.

As you know, this place is a wonderful escape from harsh reality while at the same time making one feel "grounded" when things get so out of control.

Please take care of yourself,
love, Karen

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Yachter. I'm going through something similar (again) myself and know from experience how soothing this wonderful forum can be.

Gosh, I thought I had already posted here--probably hit the wrong key---again!

Lori, you've struggled for so long and I know it's taken a toll on you and your entire family. I'll keep praying that somehow, someway, you can all find a sense of peace again in your lives.

Hugs Sweetie, take care of yourself.

Thank you all so much, our family really does need lots of prayers & I so much appreciate all of you including us in your prayers.

Just hoping for the day I can post good news here & hoping it will be soon.

With all our problems, we see this happen. My grandson goes to a small christian highschool in our town & one of his classmates just lost his 10 year old brother yesterday to cancer. It has hit my grandson hard, as it's a small school & all the kids are friends & interact. I know our problems are not the only ones our poor pastor has to deal with, although he took time on Friday to meet with my son & try to support him in our difficulties and then he had to get to the hospital for this littel boy.

So many with difficulties to deal with, are there enough prayers to go around? I sometime wonder, but I don't doubt that God will listen & is there for all of us.

Yachter...I'm so sorry to hear the sad news about your Grndsdon's friend. When something tragic like this happens it's so hard for anyone to accept.
As for your Grndson...I can understand his ..devastation.
When you're a kid, you feel invincible, until something like this happens and there's no reasoning for it.

I feel so bad with all that's going on in your personal lives..yet, I always get the sense that you're a close family with strong faith... as hard as it might be, even if it's your last ounce, keep that strong faith and hold tight to each other and know that God will bring you through this.
My continued prayers for all of you -

Oh, dear. Just when it seems like nothing else can happen, another sadness befalls you. I'm so sorry your grandson must experience such heavy sorrow at such a young age.
God bless.
