« { Catchin' Up - Part 1 } | Main | Random Tidbits of a (too) Busy Life... »



First of all, I want to say that Shawn is an amazing friend. She is so giving and caring and compassionate and loving and kind. She has been through a lot this year but whenever I see her, she always has a smile on her face. Second, I have to thank her for not only being a great friend, but for teaching me to sew. Without her, Jillyd Bags wouldn't be here. She gave me a hobby and a little source of income, and a whole lot of fun. She helped me set up my etsy shop and the first week or two had to keep it up for me because my computer wouldn't log in for me. She also is gracious enough to put a plug in for me on her blog. I can't thank her enough. But I must say, even if I never learned how to sew, she is still the greatest and we would still get together and watch the Bachelor, or Big Brother, or have a nice dinner and a movie or do what we do best, talk. I thank God for giving me a friend like her so many years ago (won't say how many) and keeping her in my life. Thanks to all of you that she chats with online. and for new neighbors. I am so glad she has all of you in her life. I can't be there for her as much as I would like to be with 4 kids and all, but I try to be there when she needs someone. To her friend, my condolences and prayers for the loss of your mom. I can't imagine losing a parent and my prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Love ya Shawn, have a great weekend.


First of all, I am glad to help out with your Instant Breakfast addiction. :)

Secondly, it is so good to see you do a "things I'm thankful for" post. It inspires me to do one too. I've done a lot of complaining lately - I need to have a different perspective.

Finally, I hate it when I don't know what to say. I find myself in that position especially when it is concerning death. There are just no words to say to make the pain and hurt go away. I feel like if I offer positive words, it is just annoying. I guess for me, I am glad that I believe in eternity. It makes death easier to deal with personally, but not easier to know the right thing to say or do for someone who has lost a loved one. My heart breaks for your friend and his family. Life can be so hard and there are just no words or actions that can make it easier.
