The Macs

Saturday, July 25, 2009


My hubby said I needed to post something tonight.
He said people might be worried about me.
I don't know about that, but JUST IN CASE...
I am doing ok.  Still having some pretty sad days, but ok.
Our internet has been out all week.
That is the reason for my lack of posting.
And let me tell you, I feel very disconnected to the world.
It is going to take me forever to respond to e-mails and get caught up on my favorite blogs.
I am too tired to post anything exciting tonight.
Lots has been going on around here, so hopefully I can tell you more throughout the week.

Thanks for continuing to check on us and pray for us.
It means so much!

I'm glad to hear that all is well!!

Are you & Joel finding out the gender? I just know that you're getting close to that point because you're due 2 days after me and we found out a week ago (at 16wks).

Can't wait to read your updates :)

Take care and we're always praying for all of you!

Joel was right. I check your blog every day or two and two weeks of that can seem like a looooooong time with no news!

It must be strange being 'followed' like this. And cared for by so many. And it is always strange when your computer dies or the internet is down - what did we ever do before??

I'm looking forward to more news when you have a chance - you have me intrigued with all that's been going on around there!

Good, I'm glad you are doing OK! I'm just an internet stranger but I do care! I also lost my baby daughter Lily (different situation, she was still born) but I can relate in a small way to your story. I now have a 4 yr old and a 3 yr old, so I'm here to say life does move of everything to you.

Rest my tired friend. You are a grieving mother and a new pregnant mom. Each own their individual stress. Grief is diblitating even with the mercy of God protecting you. You are only human with a very human body and mind. We have limitations. Earth is not heaven. Reading Kate's story was not only an emotional stress for you, but one that was physical. Your sweet Cora has only been in heaven for a very short time. To feel the pain of another mother going through the same expierence with her child is overwhelming. You are OK. Ok is all that you can expect right now. You must heal....and you are not there yet. You are living with the death of your precious baby, and also with the fear of death for you new baby. I understand. I have been where you find yourself now. You are a pure example to all of the love and mercy of Jesus Christ. But also, you are a mama dealing with issues far above what most people could ever comprehend. Take all the time you need, dear Jess. You are just fine. The focus must be on you and your needs. At this time don't worry about us. We love you and know that in your heart you carry all of us there. I also know that your husband is a grieving father. My prayers are for him too. Please don't worry about us our here in blogsville. Only think about you, your husband, little Mac and sweet Cora. Place all of your focus on your family. We are still out here praying for you and your family. We are not going anywhere. Peace, sweet peace my friend. Sleep gently. Jesus will carry you.
