Last night was hard. Collin was in so much pain. There was nothing we could do. Our day started at 4 am. I am not saying these things for your pity. Heaven knows this is not the first BAD night we have had and unfortunately it will not be the last. So, to all of you that happen upon my little corner of the blogging world.... "stalkers", first time visitors, family, friends, or who ever you are let me know you are there. I just need a pick me up of sorts. So at the beep leave a note....
BEEP!!!!..........

Oh Julie, I'm so sorry. The only experience we've had with pulling all-nighters is when one of our kids has the stomach flu. I hate waking up to the sound of puke! I couldn't imagine what you go through, but I know you'll be blessed!

P.S. I saw your little hair bow on Trena's baby, and it is so cute. One of these days, when we have extra money (ha, ha), we'll have to order from you. Loves!

I'm here! If you can't come tonight (or are too tired, etc.) I completely understand, just let me know if we are still on. In the meantime, let me know if there's anything I can do. Need lunch? Diet Coke delivery?

Hey girl, your posts keep ME going. I realize just how strong you are to face each day. I know if you can do it with a smile, I can face my day as well. You are a wonderful example to me.

You are a wonderful mother!

Just a lurker -- found you by following a link of a link of a link!! :)

(I *think* we may have gone to HS together though..... weird!)

Anyway, seeing all your trips to Disney make me SO happy!! I wish I could go as often!! Sounds like the Mouse House would be a nice treat for you today :)

Having a special needs son as well, I have a glimpse of what you go through but not nearly enough. You are amazing, I know people probably tell you are amazing, they do me and I hate it because I don't feel amazing. We are just mothers who love our sons more than life and want more than anything to make them happy.

Also my baby is so yummy, I could eat him up!

I am so sorry to hear that you little one is having a tough time. You are such an amazingly strong person, Julie!! Not a lot of people can do what you do, let alone daily. Keep your head up, things will hopefully get better soon.

Julie,
Just sending you a hug and love. You are amazing. I appreciate all the support you have given me these last 10 months and I hope you know that I am sending you all the love I can via the web and prayers.

Just know one thing. I have a firm testimony that we as mothers have the right to help from the angels in heaven to get us through these hard nights. Many nights they are no further than a pleading prayer away. Ask and ye shall receive, if not of healing, at least of help and company.

love to you,
stephanie

You should have called me! Jace has been in Idaho and I've been worried about Aj and I was up at 4 AM and couldn't go back to sleep. Darn kids, keeping us from getting a good night's rest! Too bad they've stolen our hearts and we're no good without 'em... i love ya! You are always in our prayers... The kids always remember to bless Collin not to be in pain and to not be sick anymore. Thank heavens for the hope of the resurrection. XOXO

Oh your family are in our prayers daily. I love you and know that because I know you I am a better person. The determination and strength you hold as a mother is inspiring. I learned a great lesson this week in that though the struggles don't seem to be less the weight is gone when I turn to my Savior. My burden and trials seem so trivial when I think of Collin but I know that his life and your life will continue to teach us all the pure love of christ and the great blessing of the atonement.

(okay so i hope it doesn't sound like a soapbox-I do truly love you and hang in there!)

The Gray Family said...

Julie, you are amazing and an inspiration to so many of us! Hang in there, and let me know if you need anything!!!

Marie said...

Julie, I just saw this today hope your night was better last night. Your are such an incredible person I know I live really far away so it's fun to check your blog and see what a great mother you are. Your such a good example to me.

Amy said...

So sorry Collin had another bad night. Just know you have many friends who keep Collin and your entire family in our prayers. Sending hugs your way.

Brian and Kara said...

Hey Julie!! You're not alone! We were up at 4 am too! I'm so sorry Collin (and you) had a bad night. It's just not fair! I am always amazed by your strength and positive attitude. Know that there are many many people praying for you and your little man including me. What can I do for you? Dinner? Treats? A game night? I'll call you later to find out. Hang in there! Lots of love!

I am here for you sis! I wish you lived closer!

Melinda said...

hi! :)

I realize I am like SUPER late on this comment, but what mom doesn't need comments and encouragement right???

I don't know you ... but I do know your hubby. I went to LBCC (many moons ago) and your hubby and I went to the El Dorado Ward. I happened to come across your blog probably thru a friend thru a friend (Well you get the point), and I think you are absolutely amazing.

I think Heavenly Father has great trust and love for you to be able to handle all your trials, tribulations, as well as your good days! I see alot of love in your family and I admire you! I know I could never do it, I don't have enough patience. But I am learning slowly how to get there. I think you really are terrific and I enjoy reading your blog!

Keep up the GOOD work with raising your precious children!
