MY NOVEMBER ATC

XOXOXOXOXO...AMY...XOXOXOXOXO
ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS AND THOUGHTS






I  CAN  SHOW  YOU  MY  NOVEMBER  BLISSFULL  ACT  AS

MY  SWAP  PARTNER  HAS  ALREADY  RECEIVED  HERS.

SHE  HAS  BEEN  A  TAD  BUSY  AS  HER  STOVE  BURNT  UP.

SHE  IS  VERY  SWEET  AND  I  TOLD  HER  NOT  TO  WORRY

ABOUT  SENDING  OUT  AN  ACT.   SHE  IS  HOPING  THE

STOVE  IS  STILL  UNDER  WARRANTY.

LISAKAY  YOU  ARE  IN  MY  PRAYERS.



IN  LIFE,  IT  SEEMS  THAT  NO  MATTER  WHAT  "OUR"

PLANS  ARE...THEY  CAN  CHANGE  WITH  THE  FLIP  OF

A  COIN...AND  WE  ARE  GOING  A  TOTALLY  DIFFERENT

DIRECTION  THAN  WE  PLANNED.

THE  PAST  13  MONTHS  I  HAVE  HAD  TIME  TO  DO  A  LOT

OF  DEEP  THINKING,  CRYING, YELLING,  AND  PLEADING.

IT  WAS  NOT  IN  MR.  SIMPLY  AND  MY  PLANS  FOR  OUR

BEAUTIFUL  DAUGHTER  TO  DIE...AND IN SOME  WAYS  OUR

LIFE  WILL  NEVER  BE  THE  SAME...

BUT  IN  ORDER  TO  KEEP  AMY  ALIVE,  I  HAVE  TO  RUN

MY  RACE,  JUST  AS  SHE  RAN  HER  RACE.  AND  GOD'S

WORD  ASSURES  ME,  I  WILL  SEE  HER  AGAIN.  I  KNOW

SHE  IS  WATCHING  OVER  US,  AND  IS  TIRED  OF  MY  TEARS.

I  WEEP  WHEN  I  AM  HAPPY,  SAD,  MAD,  AND  GLAD...AND  EVEN

AMY  KNOWS  THERE  WILL  BE  DAYS  I  CRY  FOR  HER.

I  DO  NOT  WANT  ANY  PITY,  AND  DON'T  FEEL  YOU  HAVE  TO

SAY  YOU  ARE  SORRY  ABOUT  AMY'S  PASSING...BUT  I  AM

GOING  TO  ALWAYS  TALK  ABOUT  HER.   THERE  ARE  PEOPLE

WHO  ACTUALLY  THINK  SHE  SHOULD  BE  BOXED  UP  AND  NEVER

TALKED  ABOUT  AGAIN.  I  DECIDED  IT  IS  BECAUSE  IT  MAKES

THEM  UNCOMFORTABLE.

SOPHOCLES  QUOTED,  "CHILDREN  ARE  THE  ANCHORS

THAT  HOLD  A  MOTHER  TO  LIFE."

ACTUALLY  JESUS  IS  AND  HE  GIVES  US  OUR  CHILDREN...THEY

BELONG  TO  HIM,  ALWAYS.

AND  SUPPORT.  YOU  HAVE  BROUGHT  ME  MUCH  JOY.

I  HOPE  I  AM  ABLE  TO  BRING  YOU  AS  MUCH  JOY  ONE  DAY.

DEBBIE,  FROM  MOSAIC  MAGPIE, WROTE    THE  MOST  WONDERFUL

POST.  I  WON'T  TELL  YOU  WHAT  IT  IS  ABOUT  BECAUSE  IT  IS  HER

POST  BUT  IT  BLESSED  MY  SOCKS  OFF  AND  FOR  THOSE  OF

YOU  WHO  ARE  WORRIED  ABOUT  NOT    HAVING  800 PLUS

FOLLOWERS,  I  THINK  YOU  WILL  BE  BLESSED  BY  HER

ARTICLE.  ( IT  IS  WHERE  ARE  YOUR  PRIORITIES .)

DEBBIE,  YOU  ARE  AWESOME.



PLEASE  READ  THE  POST.  IT  IS  SOOOO  VERY  TRUE.

AFTER  YOU  HAVE  READ  THIS  POST,  READ  SOME  OF

HER  CURRENT  POSTS.  SHE  IS  A  VERY  GIFTED  ARTIST.


HAPPY  THANKSGIVING  TO  YOU  AND  YOUR  FAMILY.

HUGS  AND  LOVE

As if you needed it Debbie, you have my permission to speak of Amy anytime you feel like it. I felt that God has blessed me when I found you and your family online. I walked and prayed with all of you and still pray. My list is right here on my desk. You are a blessing to me and I love you and your families story and thank you for sharing. My mother heart aches for your mother heart. blessings

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you also have a Happy Thanksgiving, as happy as can be. You are such an inspiration.
That's so funny about the bell peppers. I'm glad I'm not the only one. LOL
Many hugs.

DEBBIE - GOD GAVE YOU AMY AND HE WANTS YOU TO REMEMBER HER - I THINK I LOVE WHAT YOU SAID THOUGH - AMY RAN AND FOUGHT HER BATTLE - NOW YOU HAVE TO RUN YOURS - AS HARD AS IT IS.

I LIKE TO TALK ABOUT MY BROTHER, MOM, AND DAD - BUT I DON'T THINK PEOPLE KNOW WHAT TO SAY WHEN I DO.

SO WHAT. IT IS WHAT IT IS.

LOVE, SANDIE
HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Dear Debbie!
It's so nice to "see" you again - I have missed you. I've been somewhat absent too due to computer issues and better weather to spent outside with by beloved Gizzy dog.
You can do what you want - after all, it's your life and nobody else's ... why should you have to quit talking about Amy? I talk about my Oma (grandma) who passed away when I was 12 still and she's a constant in my heart, especially during Christmas. I will never quit missing her and I too cry very easily these days, but that's ok too...we are who we are and I think you are a very sweet woman!
God bless you and yours and have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
Love,
Doris and Gizzy (the dog)

Happy Thanksgiving Honey to you and all of your family. I think if we feel as if we have to apologize about writing about our children who are in Heaven then we have all the wrong readers and if so they will soon either go away or become sisters for life. A mothers love is just that regardless of where our children reside. Love you, Mollye
