Thank you

Thank you for all your prayers, thoughts, and condolences during my time of loss. The funeral was very hard. I was so thankful for my family and support of my friends.

During the viewing and wake at the church, my mommy had to go to the emergency room. I've never been more scared for her life. We all thought she had a heart attack, but the EKG showed nothing wrong. She is home now and feeling much better.

The one bright side of the funeral was seeing family and cousins I haven't seen since I was a child. Why do we always wait until a tragedy to get together with family? We've planned a family reunion for this summer and I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone again.

The one thing I learned this past weekend? Enjoy every minute of life and NEVER take your family and friends for granted. Tell them every day how much you love them because you never know when the last opportunity will pass.

Have a great week with your family, beautiful guys and dolls. See you Wednesday for ISWG.

I love you, Uncle Jimmy. Give granny and papa a hug for me when you meet them in heaven.


  1. Glad your mother is all right!
    There's a lesson there about appreciating people while they are still here.

  2. My condolences on your loss Talynn. So glad your mother was alright.

  3. I'm sorry about your loss. It must have been frightening having your mother in that predicament at such a fragile time. I'm pleased she's all right. Family is so important. It's sad that we don't think about getting together until there is some major family event.

  4. I'm sorry about your loss and the stressful occurrence. I'm glad your mother is alright. I do agree that a funeral, though sad is a good time to see family again. I wish my extended family got together more frequently than the sad times.

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

I think the more I try and slow time down, the faster it goes! Why? Sometimes I wonder if there really is fruit in my effort? I mean, no matter how hard I try, like slowing time down, it just doesn't work. where's the benefits? Where's the proof? What do I have to show for my efforts? Then, I have to sit back and realize, maybe I'm trying to change the wrong things. I mean, seriously, I can't change time, slow it down. That's an impossible task, so why do I try so hard to stop it? To time back, or slow it down. It. Can't. Be. Done. When I concentrate on the impossible, I overlook the the possible.

I'm no longer going to worry about the things out of my reach. I'm no longer going to concern myself with things I can not change. I'm no longer going to devot
