I just wanted to say thank you for all of the prayers for myself, my aunt, and my family. My aunt earned her angel wings yesterday morning and her battle came to an end. We are glad she is no longer suffering and is now in the arms of the angels. The services will be in Des Moines Wednesday and Thursday and my boyfriend will be attending to show his support. I know this is bringing up some memories for him and heís being a trooper about it. Iím so glad I have him in my corner. Thanks again for the prayers and condolences during this difficult time.

Just a quick blog to let out some emotions. A lot has been going on that I need to catch you up on. My first 5K, a big SP meetup that was AWESOME, 1st day of school pics of my kids, and so much more! Right now though Iíve been consumed with dealing with grief again. That sneaky lil bugger creeps back up on you no matter how much you try to not let it.
My aunt has been very ill and is being cared for by hospice right now. Cancer has taken another victory while her family is left to pick up the pieces. Itís a very difficult time to say the least. My boyfriend has been so good about comforting me in the past and being there for me but this time itís different. You see, he lost his daughter at the age of 7 to cancer and so this is bringing up some grief and issues with him as well. He acts like he knows it all when it comes to cancer since he has been through a similar experience. Iíll tell him my aunt is still hanging on, (in a coma), and heíll be like, yea I know. ďHow do you already know that, I just told you,Ē I said. ďStephanie was in a coma and we all gathered around for a week. A WEEK we had to watch her die.Ē Sigh. Iím sorry, Iím not as knowledgeable as you when it comes to cancer.
Anyways, thatís my vent for the day. Just needed to get that off my chest. If you could all say a prayer for my auntís peaceful passage into Godís loving embrace, I would greatly appreciate it. Itís a very difficult time for all of us. Thank you!

You should've been a fly on my wall today. I pulled the most graceful stunt and am just bummed nobody was there to laugh with me!
I was going up my steps with one arm inside my shirt, (not exactly sure why LOL I think I was undressing to get in the shower.) My cat was hanging out at the top of the stairs like she usually does. I now wonder if she sits there on purpose, plotting to move in front of me as I walk past her. Evil little thing. LOL
I ended up tripping over her, not being able to catch myself, fell into my railing bruising up my side and totally landed face first on the floor. Even rolled a bit at the end. LOL Just call me Grace!
So, that's how my day started! I'm tellin' ya, you should've been a fly on my wall. You would've been in hysterics!
Now to totally change the subject...
I would like to take this pledge that a friend of mine had posted in her blog. I've copied and pasted it below and then signed at the bottom. I encourage everyone to take this pledge with me! WE are WORTH IT!
Today, I promise I will not quit.
I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.
I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.
I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.
I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.
I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!
