 So thankful, for my family.  What a strength they are to me.

Thankful for all of you and your prayers and your willingness to be my sounding board, even when it is not something you or I want to hear.

My food is cooked, my rolls are made and raising, I have my Oliver here and he is a joy.  I can cuddle and hug on this baby and much of the pain goes away.

I have to run baking soda over to Lil sis's, gosh I hope she did not start a fire:) I also need milk and juice for Oliver as I did not think to get those things.

I also want to run to Rite aid for a few Black Friday specials. Tomorrow I hope to take down Fall and start putting up Christmas.

I need to focus on something that brings me joy.  I love Christmas decorating, and I love the reason for the season.  I need to center my thoughts on the Savior.  His redeeming love and the comfort that the Holy Ghost brings in times of trouble.

It is hard to believe in a loving God when such terrible things happen.  It is hard to have faith and to see blessings and all the good in the world.  We are the good, you are the good remember that.  It is with each other that we weather this storm.

Love you all and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Kim

  1. Beautiful family. Faith is believing in something we cannot see. We just know. Even Gpd had a fallen angel - so bad things do happen to good people. God gave people free will and sometimes that just doesn't work out the best.
    Hug those littles as much as you can. Love your family and make new memories.
    Know we are always here for you because we all love our Kim.

  7. Beautiful family. I wish I could just hug you & make all your pain go away Kim. We might not always understand why bad things happen, but we just have to trust that God knows best. I'm still praying for your family.

  8. This is tragic. I am so sorry that drugs have been a legacy in your family. Addiction is truly horrendous.

    1. That it is and that is why I have no alcohol or anything akin to it in my home. Someone has to break that cycle.

  9. What a lovely family. Hold on to each other, love each other and you can face anything with the help of God.

    When our daughter was killed my aunt said something that has stuck in my head. "God does not take life, he gives live and when someone dies that is when he takes over, and holds them in his loving arms."

    God bless.
