Goodness....another post...

Sad to say but Haley's friend, Nick, passed away this afternoon.
Please continue to keep his family in your prayers.

This is sooooo sad.
Not only does this hit waaay tooo close to my heart but Nick died on my Haley's birthday.

Thank you all for your prayers.
I know the family got them.

My Monday post will be cheerful.
I promise.
I promise.
I promise.

I am so happy that when I wake up tomorrow morning it is a whole new day.... a brand new day.
A day of new beginnings.
A fresh perspective.

On a kind of cute note....Bradley is having his very first sleep over tomorrow night.
I'm so happy for him.
This is such a big deal to him.
My little man is growing up so fast.
I'm having a ball sharing his cute life with him.

I am so, so sorry - my heart goes out to their family, I can't even imagine. I hope Haley has a lovely 20th year - she looks like such a beautiful young lady and she's lucky to have you in her life and I know you'll help her through the loss of her friend.

On that happier note - I know Bradley's first sleepover will be wonderful - I remember those first sleepovers - so sweet! (now we're old pro's around here with those - my favorites are the teenage boys who want to tell me everything..."Mrs. Cate, Mrs. Cate...know what..." - cracks me up!

I am so sorry. My prayers will be with Nicks family and yours through this difficult time. It is so sad that this has happend, and a young life at that. I read your post on your beautiful daughter. Happy Birthday to her, even though this has happend on her special day, she will always have the good memeories of her friend. I too have experienced a friends death a day before my b-day. It still is a bitter sweet day, but I always try to remember the good memories and her life.

We share in common a love for a child that was not born from us, but from our hearts. I am sure you are very special to her as well. My thoughts are with you.

Hugs to you friend,

Thinking of you my friend, and of your daughter as this is a tough thing for a 19 year old to have to deal with.

I can't even imagine the pain Nick's family must be going through or your daughter either! How tragic to lose such a young, beautiful soul! I am so sorry for you and your daughter and especially for Nick's family! I pray for peace, comfort, understanding and strength for you all! I hope your beautiful daughter Haley has an awesome birthday even with all she is going through and that your precious Bradley has a great time at his very first sleep-over! How fun for him...sad for you, I know but fun for him! :) You take care and God bless you Amy!

Whoa...another blog friends family lost their little boy to cancer on Friday. This was a crappy week before this but Im thankful my week was not tragic, just another piece of life.
I hope their joy of him will one day lighten the weight of their grief.
Bradley will have such a wonderful time...all the mischief of youth. Pity Haley's friend couldn't just stick to flashlights on the wall at sleepovers....
