Final Count 8-6-12
Yesterday (Sunday) was the last day of the garage sale. Didn’t do as well as the day before just as I thought it would be. We made $450.00 for Rowan. I don’t know what the neighbors are donating that is just my part. It should help some.
One lady at the garage sale was talking to me about the coming of the lord. Yes. I told her that I was looking forward to that day. When I am on my death bed some day I will not be afraid for I will be going on to see Kathryn and should the resurrection come before I die that would be just fine too. With faith it makes it a little easier. At least I have the belief that I will some day see my sweet little girl again.
There were a couple of other ladies who asked if they could give me a hug. Of course I said. I love to get hugs and to give hugs. A good hug makes me feel real good. One man was really choked up after reading about Rowan and then hearing about Kathryn. The loss of a child is the most devistating thing that can ever happen to a person and No one thinks it is fair.
My Mom had spent the night as well as Richard and Bee. Richard asked Grandma if she would make her delicious waffles. Of course she did. He says they are the best in the world. They are good. We all did a little garage sale shopping. My friend Robyn came over and helped with the sale and then we sat in the cool tub.
Today (Monday) was a hard start for me. I moped around fro a long time. I was not up to doing much of anything. So I wasted the entire morning. I finally kicked myself and got started on things.
I did book a place in Honolulu and Maui for next summer! Richard and Bee will go with us. I couldn’t get a place in Anaheim for Rowan’s make a wish birthday party but I will keep working on it. I know I have more points coming in October so I should be able to book it then. If not I will just use a hotel instead of our timeshare stuff. We don’t want to miss her 4th birthday.
My principal from school called me today. He had been in my room and wanted to know if there was anything he could do to soften my return to my room. He told me there was a note on the bulletin board from Kathryn. I had forgotten about that one. There is also one on my computer monitor from her too. I remembered that one. I told him to just leave everything as is. I told him it was good that he reminded me of the note on the bulletin board. That would be the last note she left me in my room. It was from last August when she helped me set up my room. He said the bulletin board is beautiful with all of the family photos. Kathryn put that bulletin board together. I must say that my principal is looking out for me and I appreciate it.
I’m a lucky girl to have so many people who care about me. I just don’t know how anyone could ever do this alone. So, Thank you for caring about me and loving me. Thank you for reading my blog.
