Thank You & A Peaceful Feeling

Today I was pretty busy but then again don't know when I'm not.

I want to take the time to thank all of you for the sweet comments. This has been really hard for all of us. I knew this day would come but you know your never ready for death. So glad I have God & all of you wonderful people to talk to.

Yesterday was Ridge & Thaniqua's father's service. Wow still so hard to believe he is really gone. I know we really didn't talk but so many times even after words said to each other we would always speak. I guess I'm just having a tough time since I wasn't back there. My Mom is a real sweet lady & yesterday she attended the service since none of us could attend. She never really cared for him but he was the Dad , so she told me she knew if even I had been there she would probably have went. She told me it was nice. She said not one bad word was said about the kids & I not being there but they asked & they were so happy to know that they were doing so well. Larry his brother said no other way they were with the best parent Caroline. It sure made me feel good.

Today I just wanted to talk to Larry tell him I was so sorry. I knew it would meke my heart feel better. I just needed some type of peace. So I called & we talked for about ten minutes. Lots of questions about the kids & me but when I hung up I felt a peace. I could smile I just needed to hear him. Whenever I had problems w/ there Dad Larry would always try to help me out.

So today I found this online thought it was pretty cool.

Thaniqua had a hard time yesterday morning when walking to school. It was the same day of the service. She cried a little & I asked her if she wanted to go to school of course she did. I told her is good to cry & you need to. I showed her this picture & she loved it.

I thought about Ridge to yesterday but I'm sure he did fine. I heard from another teacher who came back from camp for a meeting at school said Ridge was having lots of fun , plus going on a 5 mile hike. So glad his trip was this week but I really miss him. So I'm really excited for tomorrow at 1pm when he comes back. Our house just is not the same w/out him.

Better get some sleep nite all.

I like that quote, Caroline, and I do believe it is so true. I am glad to hear that your mom was able to go to the service and at least let people hear how you were doing and how the kids were doing. Also glad that you made that phone call to Larry too; I'm sure that wil help with closure in the days to come. Thaniqua is a strong young girl; I always agree that crying sometimes can be so healing. I think you are a very wise woman in how you are dealing with this as well as so many other issues in your life!

Big hugs to all, especially you! Nice to hear Ridge had a good time at camp through a teacher; I'm sure that helped put your mind a little at ease!
