{cheer mail}

Regan has been blessed with LOTS of sweet cheer mail.

It has been wonderful!

When she get's sad at night and starts asking the hard questions and becomes upset I can remind her that she has a package coming.

That always seems to put a smile on her face.

I truly feel so blessed by the kindness of others and their love for our family.

Regan was feeling very HAPPY about cheer mail and felt the need to pay it forward.

So, we thought of some friends that could use some cheer.

Do you remember this pretty lady?

Well, I said I would explain why she came by in a later post.

Today is that post.

She came by to drop off.....

a ton of cute hair bows to send to several lucky girls.

Regan and I went shopping and picked out some goodies to in the packages with the bows.

She was so excited!!

She thoughtfully selected the items for each package and.....

wrote them sweet little notes.

She told me how good it felt to be able to send some cheer to other girls that needed it. :)

She was even more excited when she heard that friends were getting their packages.

Doesn't Emily look adorable in her new hair bow!?!?!?

I am grateful for Regan's example of love and compasion.

I think sending these packages made it even more fun for her when she checked the mail one day to find....

Cheer mail all the way from......


A very sweet friend of mine from Oklahoma, that is now living in Ireland, contacted me and asked if she could send Regan some cheer.

She wrote the kindest note to Regan. :)

I have to admit I got a few tears.

The love and compasion of others during this hard time in our family's life is overwhelming.

And if that isn't enough Regan also recieved cheer mail from.............


Yes, even while Paw was in the hospital Maw still thought of my sweet girl.

We have been showered with kindness lately.

Thank you!! THANK you!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

Bubba is having  a hard time.

The MRI results were good and bad....

The good news.... no change.... The bad news.... no change.

We are all at a loss as to what is going on with him.

He is only awak 5-7 hours a day.

He can hardly hold himself up.

He gets so tired so quickly.

It is breaking all of our hearts.

I feel so helpless as a mother to have to watch my little boy slip away from me and not be able to do anything about it.

We meet with his team soon and will try to come up with a new game plan.

The one good thing is that when he is not in pain he sends me his own form of cheer mail.....

"The trouble with learning to parent on the job is that your child is the teacher." ~Robert Brault

I feel so blessed to have such sweet children that are teaching me every day by example.

I truly believe that in some of our darkest moments we can be blessed with the brightest blessings.

Thank you to all of you that have been a bright blessing in our lives... you know who you are!

I think about you and your family every day. In spite of everything on your plate, you set an example of thinking of others first. God bless Bubba and give him the strength he needs... and you all as well. Regan is a wonderful child... what a good heart - and no wonder with such good examples in her parents. God bless you during this time.
