It's been a VERY difficult week.

In the midst of it, things look very different.

A lot of things more appreciated.

An immense sense of love.

And, loss.

A broken heart.

A thankful heart.

Pain that only a mother can comprehend.

Pain for friends that rip me apart.

An out of control incident of bullying.

Sweet words from friends.

Why did I take the above picture?

It's back to the bullying issue that wrecked havoc this week.

Those were actually happy tears above. 

I conveyed  sweet words to him that a long time friend had said
about the situation.  

Words can destroy.  Or, restore.

Even I need to remember that as often as I open my mouth.

But, for now, I am going to continue to pray.  And, then pray some more.

And, if you think of it....PLEASE pray for my sweet friends, the Pickles.
Roy was placed on Hospice today.  It has been such a long road.
He has fought such a hard fight.  It is painful to watch this family being
forced to say goodbye.  I think I had rather have been anywhere but
there today.  But, at the same time, there was no other place I would
have rather been.   Praying for peace and comfort. 

BTW, one phone call to the school and our issue was handled
swiftly and appropriately.  I am very thankful for a school district
that has zero tolerance for such a painful issue.   N has bounced back very well!
