I am so behind.
When I set up the e-mail account for my blog I had such good intentions.
I wanted to respond to all of your questions.
After all, you have been so kind to me.
But I have over 100 e-mails sitting in my inbox.
Some from several months ago.
I have read them all.
And I still intend to respond...someday.
I guess I am telling you because I want you to know that I care.
I am just a procrastinator and have gotten a little overwhelmed.
Ahhh...I feel so much better now that you know!

I have responded to most of the Cora's for Calla e-mails.
I still have a few I need to get back to.
Oh and I am sure you are wanting to see this week's raffle.
I was planning on posting it today,
but have been feeling pretty yucky this afternoon.
Hopefully I am not getting sick.
So, the raffle will be posted tomorrow.
Come back and check out all the great stuff then.

And for those of you who asked.
We raised just over $800.00 for the Johnsons.
Thank you so much for blessing Calla and her family in this way.
I can't wait to see what else we can do!

$800 - awesome! You are such a wonderful, thoughtful friend. Too bad we don't live in the same town :) I love the pictures you post of Levi. He's seriously the cutest little guy I've ever seen!

oh, goodness, please don't respond back to my email! I just wrote it to let you know how much I love your blog and that we pray for you and things God has taught me. So if you got one from eatsleepandrun - ignore it :) Truly... I'm just glad you read it.

And be good to yourself! Yes, I hope you are not getting sick as well.
That is a wonderful picture of your boys. :)

LOL! Mr. Levi looks like he's saying, "Ohhhh Mom, you haven't answered them???" That is an adorable photo of daddy and son.

But really, I'm betting no one is worried... they know where you are and what your days are filled with, what you've had to contend with.

AWESOME for the $800!! Woo-hoo!

Wow! That is great news! $800!!

Ummmm...Aren't you the mother of a one-month-old? What are you apologizing to us (your stalkers, essentially) for? Procrastinating??? You are still mourning your beautiful daughter while mothering a new son and raising money for Calla - I see nothing there to apologize for! Look after yourself and let your body fend off any sickness. We can wait.

$800! That's amazing! What a blessing for their sweet family.

It's funny, because I find myself needing to explain when I'm not right on top of things on my blog and people always tell me, "take care of you and your family. the rest can wait." I always tend to feel guilty.

When I hear you say it, I realize how true it really is. The love that we strangers feel for your blessed family is not something that needs a note of validation. (At least not from my perspective.) We all just love you because you're lovable. ;)

Take care of yourself. Take care of Levi and Joel and we will all still be here loving you guys.

Vitamin D3 - in substantial doses - is good for fighting colds. They are finding almost every ailment these days is related to low Vitamin D3. Google it or check out the site "Doctor Yourself" by Andrew Saul.

Hope you feel better soon! I'm told that it is normal to be behind, being a new mama. Not in my experience, i'm afraid. But you can't be hard on yourself.

oh jess! how refreshing to see this post. I need to just tell people when I'm feeling bad about things that just haven't happened sometimes too. What a great example. I'm sure you feel much better. Take your time! :) Kelly

Love and Hugs to all of you.
