Sad News!

Hi Everyone:
Just wanted to let those who participated in my Scrappling Contest know that I haven't forgotten about you.  I have been so crazy with life that I didn't get to purchase a gift certificate yet. So I might just send you some prizes from my stash. But to make matters worst my Nanny pasted away on Tuesday night and I haven't felt like doing much since I got the news. It really has been a tough year. My Dad's youngest brother passed away in May and then 3 months later is oldest brother passed away. And now my Mom's mother just passed away. Yes, it really has been a tough year. If any of you pray and could do so on our families behalf that would be greatly appreciated. Not really sure of how much more we can take. I do try to remember that God tells us in His Word that He doesn't give us more than we can bear and that trials build our character. This is true I know but it can be ever so tough when it first begins. Looking down the road from now we can all look back on life and breath a sigh of relief and question how we ever made it through. But that is life isn't it! Always tossing us moments of happiness and saddness, decisions and choices. All of it giving us a life that we can each call "My Life". No matter the journey, it is our little part of life that we occupy, and ours to make a change for the better and impact those around us. Hope this email finds you all in good health and enjoying the Autumn weather.

Blessings
Dana

Oh Dana! I'm soooo sorry! Death was never in God's original purpose for this earth which is why it's so hard to bear. It's unnatural.
I look forward to the time when all our sorrow will be wiped away; when we can welcome our loved ones back.
Til that time I am thinking of you and praying that God will give you comfort from his Word and in the knowledge that others care..
Virtual Hugs,
Dorcas

Oh Dana! I am terribly sorry about all this sadness around you at the moment! If there is anything I can do just let me know ok. Don't worry about the scrupling challenge, really, that should be at the bottom of your list right now! You just take good care of yourself and your family! Sending you some warm hugs from Houston!

Oh Dana! I know God hears our prayers and answers them! I will pray for you and your family! You're absolutely right...God NEVER gives us more than we can handle! He also promises to be right there beside us through all the tough times! Just lean on Him and He'll be your strength! There really ARE brighter days ahead!...Nancy :o)

Oh, my dear online buddy, my heart is with you as I understand that you are suffering. Take care of yourself and don't worry about contests or crafting - sending lots of hugs.

Oh Dana, I am so sorry to hear about your Nanny. It's sad to lose someone we love and something that only time will make easier to bear. Take time to grieve and to take care of yourself as well.
I, for one, am grateful every day to have my health and to have yet another day upon this earth to spend with friends and family. Hugs.

I was so sorry to read about your grandmother Dana! They are such special people. No one loves us the way a grandma does! I hope your Mom is doing better and finds some comfort in sweet memories and keeping busy. I always find it's best to keep busy helping others.
Caring thoughts and hugs to you and your family.
