xmas, I hope the extra rest helps you feel beeter!

claireloveschristmas, it's so good to see you again! hope all is well & don't work too hard sweety!

CM3, sorry you couldn't sleep last night. you were just excited about the good news from the vet yesterday, weren't you?

I hope everyone is safe & warm in the snow storm.

ya' know how I've told y'all my job isn't the greatest? (fyi, I'm a florist) here's a prime example of why; I will start by saying that I cannot handle anyone harming a child or elderly person or anyone who is defenseless. I take it very personally (I guess that's the right word??) & cannot get it out of my head. I have to make a casket piece today for a 5 YEAR OLD!! this child is gone due to the horrific acts of an adult! I am in mourning for this child, deeply. I will not go into detail about it on here. I try to keep a Christian attitude about it, but I am finding it almost impossible to NOT want harm to come to this person. I do not know this person personally. unfortunately, I learn of this type of news all too often in this business. we are usually the 2nd call made, 1st the funeral home then us. if you go to my FB, go to my likes, click on Lancaster funeral home, then obits, you will see this beautiful little girl's pic. I hope that doesn't sound morbid. the only comfort I find right now is knowing the authorities have the person in custody & the little girl is in Heaven now, probably w/ little angel wings.

I will apologize now for this post, as I am afraid this maybe too much for some. I am extremely close to so many of you & feel as though I can talk to y'all. FB is not the same for me. THIS is my family.
please pray for this family in their time of deep sorrow.


my love for each of you abounds & again please accept my apologies for such a grim post.
she was a cutie, so very sad that anyone would want to hurt a small child. My prayers are with the mom as she deals with this.

I feel so bad when the kids are sick, especially on their birthday. My daughter was in bed sick with the flu on her 16th birthday. I really hope your son is feeling better very soon!

Not too much else planned for today, just typical daily chores. I was all prepared to stay in today because of the weather so I don't have any errands to run. I hope everyone has a great day!

Very nice to see you again. I hope you get the snow you want !! xo

(((((MerryMistletoe))))) You don't need to apologize !! I feel the same way. It is a little different I know, but when I am typing reports and the person is so sick and they are in hospice and especially if they do not want to die, it always makes me sad. We cannot help but become involved emotionally sometimes even with folks we don't know. I think that is one of the reasons we love Christmas so much - because we are more emotional than other folks. I will pray for this little one's family xo
