Hello Again

Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, calls, emails, cards and thoughtfulness during this time.
We are all doing surprisingly well. My Husband and fil both went back to work today. I am back at fulltime Mommy world too. We are trying to get back to a new normal.

Many of you know that I did not have a great relationship with my mil because of her lack of concern and respect for the babies health. In a nutshell she wanted and did (until I put a stop to it) smoke (the same thing that killed her) while around them and while at our home (although we allow NO ONE to smoke inside our home). They were so sick with reflux and underdeveloped lungs that it literally could have killed them. I really hate that we were not closer, although I tried on many occasions. I apologized to her several times after her diagnosis, although I never received one (which is fine). She thought that all was well and I could make it fine if she could too. She had a peace and that was what mattered. We did share some sweet time before her passing. My prayer is that we all get to gather again on the streets of gold one day.

God is so good and I have no regrets. I only wish my children could have known both Grandmothers and not just one.

I am late this week mailing my coupons out for the coupon train. I apologize and will catch up next week. Please forgive me Mimi.

Please keep the King family in your prayers. I went to school with Amy and graduated with her sister. What a woman! She is so strong. Her is the news link.,2933,343176,00.html. a true blessing that everyone survived. Thanks to Amy and her quick thinking.

I hope to be back to blogging today, although it may be tomorrow. I hope you all are well. I cannot wait to catch up with you all. Blessings always!

Glad things are settling back down for you.

I didn't know about you and your mil relationship (must have been before my time) but I'm glad you were able to end things on good terms. It will be nice..the no fussing or frustration in heaven.

My kids only have 1 grandma as well, but fortunately she's very hands-on and they think she's the greatest. Take care, and good to see you again.

Good to hear from you, I was worried. It is nice to get back to "normal" and back into your routine. I plan on sending you some coupons soon, I have been too scattered with the new baby to organize/plan like i try to. Love, heather

I also did not know of the strain on the relationship. My mom died right before I turned 18 so I understand the wish that the kids could know her. My oldest was born on my mom's birthday. Isn't that so cool.
