Memorial

I know I say this a lot, but y'all are the best. I can't tell you how comforting it was when I posted about my Pappy's death and then instantly saw emails and comments galore. A big internet hug from y'all made it much easier to deal with. There's a memorial in Florida on Saturday. I don't know if I'm going to go. Our social worker is coming Tuesday. I'd have to leave first thing in the morning then turn around and come home Sunday. This wouldn't give me any time down there with my Nanny. And she needs me now more than Pappy needs me at a memorial. I talked to Nanny this morning and she would rather me come down for a week a little later. We just can't afford 2 Florida trips- not with an adoption trip looming on this year's horizon. I feel bad for missing the memorial though. Ugh. I hate this. But I adore you guys. Thank you.

So ... sorry for the stupid question, but would you be going to get your girl[s] *this* year? Oh my gosh, how exciting would that be? Again, I'm *really* sorry about your grandpa. Hope you have a safe trip. Hey, I bought Lucas a pair of baby Crocs! hehe :) He looks adorable in them.

I'll be thinking of you. It's a hard thing but, yes, your Nanny sounds like she knows what will help her best.

Your heart is hurting and my prayers will join the others for softening your pain of loss. Your life and the kind person you are, are in part a living memorial of the life your Pappy lived.

Life is a circle that won't be broken. Prayer is always answered. You have learned a great lesson of what to pray for. Just as a flower unfolds in the warmth of the sun, so will the object of your prayers unfold in God's due time.

Shanny, I just now read about your Pappy passing and I'm so sorry and I'm sorry you can't get down there for the memorial. I'm glad your grandma wants you to come for a long period of time later.
