January 10, 2010


I haven't visited your blog in a while and thought I would check in to see what you're up to. I'm so glad I did.

I understand everything you're talking about. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Wow Jen, I haven't checked in in awhile, and I am so saddened by you current situation. Please know there are many prayers to come from Wisconsin. Take care and be safe!

Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry I bothered you with my silly roman shade questions! You have too much to be dealing with right now! What a horrible start to the new year. Each one of those is hard to deal with on their own let alone all at once! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Jen, This is such a rough time for you...hang in and your family are in my thoughts.
♥, Susan

My heartfelt prayers are sent your way. My dearest friend just lost her 27 year old daughter to leukemia. It's so hard to lose loved ones and my mom's been gone 17 years now. Be strong and carry on best you can. Hugs!

Oh, Jen, I was so sorry to read this post. It sounds like a very dark time right now. I will be praying for hope and wisdom and peace. I lost my dad 4 years ago but it seems like yesterday sometimes. Things will get better, I promise.--Cheryl

Peace be with you in some shape or form these next days.

You are a strong woman who is meant to be where you are helping your family.


Wow Jen. I've been feeling sorry for myself for having H1NI. yikes. Leaving young kids like that is unbelievable. I'm so sorry for your family. I think we all can relate in some ways to the decline of parents and sad early death of friends and family and I just shake my head and think "how do we all do this?" I don't know. It isn't easy though. Life is a struggle all the time in one way or another with inserts of happiness and joy here and there. At least that is how I see it. I totally agree on the health care thing. I was happy when my dad finally went. He had no quality of life and they wanted to do surgery and chemo. Nope. We can put our foot down even though some people think that is terrible. It isn't. There is life after life and that is the thing that gets us through such tragedy.

Hugs, my thoughts are with you. My Mom choose to go peacefully at home, it was hard being the caretaker for a few weeks but she died sleeping next to me in her own bed. Solace for us both, I don't think I could have handled it in a hospital.

I am so sorry to hear what you are going through Jen. You are right down the road from me. If you need to escape for a few hours, run over to a place called Good Goods in Visalia. I think it will lift your spirits and Beverly's fabrics is a beautiful store too. As for your father, my hubby works in the hospital and that is one thing that he as a health care worker sees daily. It makes him sad to see a patient be resuscitated time and again because there is no order on the charts to let them go peacefully. Until that time, they are supposed to, by law, do everything they can to save them. Hang in there and please know that you and your family are in my thoughts.

My goodness, Jen. That is a rough start. Hang in there. I'll be thinking about you. :)

Big hugs and good thoughts going your way.

Jen--I missed you at Guild and thoughtlessly didn't even check out why you weren't there. Forgive me. I'm so sorry you are having such a hard time just now. Know that you and yours are in my prayers and I'll be waiting with a big hug when you return. Not much, but it's what I can give. so very sorry.

Big non-shaking hugs!!! Thinking good thoughts for your family! xoxom

Jeez Jen,
2010 has begun with a bang huh? I thought of you the second I heard about the earthquake and I'm happy to hear you're ok. I'm so sorry to hear about your step-sister and your father. You're dealing with life at both ends of the spectrum...passing too young, and living too long. My Dad died at 52 and my Grandmother is 94 so I know what you mean. Life is hard!!
Things will get better soon though! I'm thinking about you:)

Sweetie----- I'm so sorry. I'm sending love and light. Take care of yourself!

Big Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My condolences on your recent troubles.

Sara Palin's assertions about "death panels" are of course kooky and flat out lies, but it goes to reason that if the government allowed people to decide their own right to die when terminal illness and convalescents until death are inevitable that this would not be an issue.

I watched my grandfather die in a hospital bed, medicated out of any reason, gasping for air, starving and dehydrated, and I wouldn't wish such an indignant death on anyone.

Hang in there, times like these just make us stronger. xo,suzy

Jen, I am very sorry to hear of your recent sorrows and the heaviness of your heart. You are in my thoughts and prayers along with your family.

Dear Jen,

I am a religious person - you and your family are in my prayers.

Sorry to hear about all that is going on with you and your family. When I heard of the earthquake, the first person I thought of was you. Hopefully your home doesn't have too much damage ... like you said, it's all "stuff". Not as important as life, family, and friends.

Jen, I'm so sorry for all the tough times you've had recently. Here's hoping for a better year. Hugs to you:)

((((Jen))) That is a mighty rough start. Hang in there, I will be thinking of you and hoping things look brighter soon.

I'm so sad to read about the difficult times you are having.I'm sending a big hug from the UK for you.

What a way to start the year. I don't even have the words to tell you how much I hate that you are dealing with all this. Stay strong.
