Thank You. And You. And You....

I want to do an update on my Isabella.

But before I do...thank you.

And you.

And you.

Your kind words.

Personal stories.

Tears.

Prayers.

Thank you's to God.

Comforted me.

On a day such as Saturday.

I'm still in shock.

I cried hard. Last nite, the tears flowed.

Harder than I've ever cried before.

Thinking the unimaginable. What if.

My heart aches even thinking those thoughts.

I've never imagined my life without my girls.

I've never been more scared in my life.

I still have a tremendous amount of guilt.

I've hugged her and kissed her non-stop.

For those who know me?

I do that a lot already. So to imagine more?

Wow.

I didn't tell you all how a week before some scary things had also happened.

God spared us then, too.

How many close calls will we have?

I'm scared. Paranoid.

I'm sorry this is so long.

I need to get this stuff out. Off my chest.

As for Isabella?

My little wild one?

You'd never be able to tell anything had happened.

Happy.

Singing.

Dancing.

Hugging.

Kissing.

Bump free.

No telling me today 'head hurt'.

Cupcake eating (yes, I made her 2 dozen cupcakes. To share with mommy and daddy of course.).

Orange eating.

Popsicle loving.

Same Bella.

Different Mommy.

Different Daddy.

We saw our gift taken away for a moment.

And that moment has forever changed us.

Our family.

Our lives.

Love and hugs to all of you.

Hug your loved ones, your little ones a little tighter, okay?

And pass on a hug from Isabella.

As a thank you.

Girl...I just opened my Reader and had to scroll down REALLY fast to find out what happened!!! Thankfully, I read the happy ending first, but it still didn't stop the tears from falling while I read your scary post!!!
I am SOOO happy that Isabella is doing great, and that your family unit is as strong as ever! I am keeping you all in my prayers, right up there with the prayers I say with my children every night! I am ALWAYS so thankful for everyday with my children, but sometimes in the back of my mind I think..."What if?" I hate those times, because I know I never want to have to live through what you did this weekend!! LOVE LOVE LOVE coming at you girl!!! :)

I'm snuggling my little guy right now...and trying to keep him from pushing the computer keys. :)

I'm so glad that Isabella is her same cute little happy self. Kids are so resilient, aren't they? She is blessed to have such a loving mommy and daddy.

THANK YOU for being such an amazing person and esp. mommy. It really shows just how much you truly love your daughters and family. I hope that I have a family like yours one day and can feel the love that you have for yours, because it sounds so completely wonderful.

I read your last post, and my heart sank a little. Then I read this one and I'm so glad she's doing great now!

Our little ones are close in age and I've had a "fall scare" too---so I can imagine how you must have felt! So glad she's eating cupcakes and popsicles again!!

I'm so very glad to hear she's fine. I know it's a relief to you but of course I'm sure you are still affected by what happened. I hope you are feeling better about it though. More hugs...

Summer said...

Hey lady...I was just sick when I read your last post! I'm so relieved to hear that Isabella is doing well and has bounced back just fine. You need to make sure you take care of yourself too, and don't beat yourself up over this! I'm so sorry for what you've all been through, and I'll be sending some prayers of comfort to you. Lots of hugs..
