I'll be back soon

I need a few days......
I have 2 funerals 48 hrs apart.....
If you remember I mentioned a few weeks ago about taking pics of my oldest childhood friends mother who had ovarian cancer.....{she was too sick so we didn't get the images:( } anyway, she passed away night before last.
This morning as I am on my way to take the school pictures {which by the way turned out great, I shot all the 6th, 7th & 8th grade girls, love them!} my mother called to tell me that one of her oldest friends, son had passed away unexpectedly last night. He was in his early 20's.


I tell you, I have cried so much the past few hours....my mom called when she left her house tonight..... the things she said....how she heard about it....then she had a FOUR AND A HALF HOUR DRIVE home to where he was.....I tell you, I would probably end my life. MY KIDS AND HUSNAD ARE MY LIFE... I have pondered every thing the past few hours.

WHY....you wonder WHY!!!
Why does He choose the young and innocent but the child molesters and rapists live on....
The homeless man with no family will live til he's 90 and die under a bridge but the young momma with babies will die of cancer......

I know we can't know the why's but you just have to wonder.........why....

I bought this cake last week....FOR NO OTHER REASON other than to let my kids know that each day is a gift!! The lady looked at me like I had lost my mind when I told her what I wanted on it......

So, I will be mia again for a few days. Tomorrow is my friends mothers funeral.....Monday is my friends sons....

I will be back Tuesday-can't wait to catch up and see what's been going on....I have been a shopping FOOL....will show ya some of my goodies soon!!

Still time to enter the swap...... I was sending an email but there really wasn't much to talk about , lol, just wanted to say thanks & how excited I am......also there is a badge, feel free to take it and use it on your blog. I will be sending email soon cause there are several people who haven't given my their blog urls....no biggie, shoot it to me if you think I may not have it or if you didn't include it.

Much Love and once again, thanks for your comments, emails and texts!
ps-mini-me had a better day:) thanks for your thoughts and prayers!


  1. I'm going through the same things you are. I have a funeral tomorrow at 2 as well. i feel your pain.

  2. Oh my dear my heart goes to the families and friends for the loss of their loved ones. Life is a precious gift ~ we must learn to enjoy and treasure each moment we are given.

    It's hard to understand sometimes "why". This is where we need to have strength and Faith. God places each of us here with a purpose - sometimes to learn and other times to help others learn. When we have completed our purpose we are able to return "Home". Yes, I know without a doubt that "Home" does exsist ... I was there sometime during my accident... The method that we take to return "Home" also has a lesson to be learned.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers, HHL

  3. You are all in my thoughts and prayers!

  5. I'm so sorry. I like your idea for the cake. Celebrate Today. Awesome!
