Give your little one an extra hug tonight!

This is such a sad story!

My mom called me this afternoon to share this horrible news and it's just breaking my heart. I lived in Thomasville for 3 years and my mom works with the little girl's father. We went to church with this family and my sister went to school with the mom. It just hits close to home since alex and the little girl who died were almost exactly the same age.

It really puts life into perspective...after mom told me about this i kept thinking who cares if gas is $4 a gallon, who cares if i had a bad day at work, who cares if my house is a mess. I have a beautiful little girl to come home to every night! I am so thankful for what I've been given and am trying to learn to not take anything for granted. This could happen to anyone at any moment, but for the time being I'm going to smother Alex with my hugs and kisses and be extra thankful that I have a perfect little girl! My heart goes out to the Blanton family. I do not know them well but in an instant today, their lives were forever changed! Sometimes I just don't get how something so horrific could be what god has planned...it's really not fair! Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers. This little girl leaves behind her mom, dad and two brothers who must be experiencing grief they never could have imagined!


Will be back soon

I think I feel off the face of blogosphere!!! I have NO time! I need to blog, it helps me vent, remember, and just be me! But even as I sit here I don't have the time or energy to create something that even semi-resembles a decent blog entry. I swear I'm still alive, things are just crazy for lack of a better word! I'll return very soon!

BTW, Alex is cute as hell!! She's so chatty and funny and sometimes I'm jealous of her quirky personality! Sheeka and Oompa (her imaginary friends) are around daily and we've dubbed her conversations to living living in 'alexville'. Hopefully this is just 2 year old cuteness and not the start of a serious mental illness ;)
