What a wonderful world...

I just cruised over to the boards and saw all the responses to my post of March 16.

I'm bawling. I can't believe there are so many bright, articulate women (who I look up to and am constantly inspired by) who have so generously offered much kindness and support. I bet that each of you is wildly appreciated where you are in real life. I am tremendously blessed to "know" you all.

Thank you. The peace that passeth understanding is pouring in right now. Thankyouthankyouthankyou...

Have a blessed and restorative weekend. I'll be back imminently to emote some more. (insert self-deprecating grin here)

Carrie, my dh is interning as a hospital chaplain right now, and he constantly tells me that the person going through something often has a tremendous amount of grace to handle it....while the people around are flailing their arms and wondering "how do they do it"....that's all I can think of here...you have a tremendous amount of grace to sustain as you do. But I have to be honest, I don't even know you or the father of your children, but I want to find him and wring his neck while shaking him hard enough to jerk him back into reality! Your reality that is....praying for you and your dear children (From Kim on TWTM boards)

Okay, I'm sorry but now I'm laughing....I'm signed into blogger under my dh's ID and I didn't know he has his photo connected to his ID...whoops! I hope you can laugh at it...a mid-life 40'ish guy on a scooter who probably fell off in the next frame!

Oh Carrie... thanks so much for posting all this. I know what you mean about not being able to tell the same story again and again. I so related to your new expertise in something you'd rather not know about! You are amazingly strong--but of course, as you have had to discover, there isn't any choice, is there? So know that I continue to pray for you every day. I can't imagine the pain you must be experiencing. It's hard enough to cope on one major front in life, but two must be overwhelming.

People used to say to me was "This too shall pass." Yeah, but it passes damn slowly while you are there...

I wish there was something more concrete I could do for you. I don't really know under what circumstances you are living right now, but I'm willing to do whatever would help you out. I hope you have a great support network up there!

I've bookmarked you new blog, so if you keep it updated I'll keep checking. Take care, blessings and peace...

Carrie, I have been following your posts on TWMW board and I am so, so impressed and awed by the grace you are able to show during this extremely difficult time in your life. I am praying for you and yours, and don't know what else to say. You are an amazing woman. God bless you, dear one.

Think, think, think...Nope, try as I might I can't come up with anything witty or profound. Suffice it to say I'm awed by your grace under pressure, Carrie. I so wish there was something ~ anything! ~ I could do to ease your pain. I'm glad I "know" you. Truly.

Love,
Colleen
