Ladies of Inspiration

I just want to say thank you to all of you who have responded to my situation regarding my home. It is truly a difficult position to be in.

I want to tell you how proud of you I am. I have been where you are. It takes tremendous strength and courage to make such a transition. I am inspired by you. You give me hope.

You are a woman of strength to me. I love your perspective on life. You have such a nice twist to everyday, mundane situations, from family to jobs to your own personal self. You make feel good that I am not alone and that I am truly "normal"!

I thank you for your cyber hugs. I read your entry and began to cry. Why? I do not know. All I know is your words really touched my heart. You are an amazing woman with all that you are going through.

You remind me of myself when I was young with my own children. You are an awesome mom. Your children will grow to be fine young adults one day.

Mama Fargo,
I really like the way you think below the surface of things, especially regarding children and family. It all starts in the home. It was once said something to the effect of "Psychosis is not born, it is created". Our life experiences during upbringing are critical. They can not be prevented, nor can one have a perfect life. However, these experiences, both positive and negative need to be nurtured by loving adults. These adults don't have to be biological, just loving.

"Cut & Dry" ,
You have an amazing positive energy that is felt through your entries. Your photography is beautiful and uplifting. Thank you for sharing that with me. I smile every time I read your replies :).

"Elvie Studio",
Your creativity warms me inside every time I see what you have made. You have inspired me to take the time to "look" for and reactivate my own creativity. In fact, I brought my crotcheting out today to continue a project I started a few months ago. My grandson is still wearing those funny looking little slippers I made for! I am also looking at making wall hangings with drawings on them (I use to draw in my young adult years). Thank you for being so positive.

Those whom I have not mentioned, thank you too for all your positive thoughts and prayers.

I honestly do feel so much better this afternoon. It took a little time, but I think I back to my old self again.

It was an easy day today, only a few kids. The weather is really nice today so I took them outside for a good while. I attached the umbrella to the lawn chair so I was able to sit without being hot from the sun.

Overall, a wonderful day. Thank you so much for your prayers!

You are such a sweetheart! We all need support and understanding. I truly appreciate all your prayers as I also pray for you and all my friends!...much love my dear!


Yes, I have been inspired by you so much. I can feel you love as a mom through your blogs. Allie is going to be fine because he has a wonderful, loving mom to get him all better. I remember as a young child, just having my mom there was all it took.

I remember, even in middle school, how I would stay home when I was sick. I would lay in my mom's bed until she got home or I'd call her at work, just to hear her voice.

She's gone now. Died in 1999. We were all there as she took her last breath. I miss being able to call her when I'm having a tough time. However, she taught us three girls to be strong and work things through. I'm still able to treasure her by doing things she taught me to do and to pass these things on to my own children.

You are a good mom. I can feel it...sniff* Give Allie and the baby snuggles for me. :-D
